My wife and I came to visit CC and found Hester's as the number 2 breakfast place in Corpus Christi so we decided to try it out and I have to say this is one of the coolest coffee/café bars I have ever been to! I absolutely definitely recommend this place, the coffee was amazing.

A friend took me here for lunch while in town on business. Wow! I was so excited to walk into a small business that served fresh salads, house prepared soup and other lunch entrees. The food was awesome! Fresh taste and well prepared. The service was friendly and welcoming. The smell of the coffee beans was fantastic. We did not... More

I love this little place as it's a small, quiet place to have coffee or even a small breakfast as well as chat or have a small business meeting. The prices are fair and the coffee is great as well.

My first visit to Hesters included a fantastic breakfast of two eggs and the best french toast Ive had in a while! Known as "Griddle Toast", the Texas version of the french variant, they were relatively as thick. Great coffee, personable staff and fresh fruit accompanied the breakfast!

Lamar Square location. I had expected more from the TA reviews I read. I ordered the Curfew omelette. It was OK, too lite on the feta cheese. I expected a more flavorful taste from this combination. The whole preparation was dry and somewhat rubbery in texture. Potatoes we inspiring. Wife and mom in law had Duke Ellington scramble. No complaints... More

This is a great lunch spot. Set in a shopping center it has inside and patio self -seated dining. Easy to find and get in and out in an hour. Great selection of sandwiches and salads as well as yummy desserts if you care to indulge. It does get busy over the noon hour as it is very popular; so... More

Excellent food, reasonable prices, and staff extremely nice. I took my parents for breakfast and we all walked out very satisfied and dad is one of the pickiest eaters I know. Worth making a stop for the bakery if you dont have time for eating a meal.

They help with menu contents and allergies. The waitress helped with choices in the menu. I recommend the desserts. Death by chocolate.
