We were looking for a cafe to eat at on our way out of town and stumbled on this. We didn't know it was in the Art Museum when we chose it, but that was a great bonus. Free parking, got to see a little art while we walked to cafe, and loved the view of the bay and USS... More

We had a big order for family visit, and everyone enjoyed their selection. We had a variety of tastes from omelette, quiche, and sandwiches. For dessert the chocolate cheesecake And apple pie were delicious. We would recommend a lunch at Hester's

We ordered and got our coffee (it's a serve yourself coffee), which was very good. They had two different coffee, plus a decaf, which is in carafes that are just big enough so they have... More

My family went here based on my sons recommendation. We were not disappointed. I got the spinach/feta cheese quiche with fresh fruit, and we all agreed it was excellent. My husband and son had French toast and eggs which were also very good. One tried the monte cristo which was huge, but we were all able to polish it off... More

My family and I have visited Hester's many times on various visits to Corpus Christi. This quaint breakfast/coffee spot always delivers high quality food and friendly, helpful staff. My favorite menu item is a 4-egg breakfast plate called the Ella Fitzgerald.
