We had such a wonderful experience with our food and staff that we encountered. The salad was phenomenal. Great view. A must. Local, I will be back with my husband and daughter soon!

“Loved the menu choices”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Our group of four couples ate here before we visited the art museum. We loved the various choices on the menu and we all ordered something different. The quiche was delicious. There were lots of enticing desserts in the display case. The turtle cheesecake looked better than Cheesecake Factory! The view is nice being right on the water.

“Nice lunch after visiting the museums”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

The cafe is right on the water with lots of boat traffic, so it's a good place for watching boats. They have an outdoor seating area too, so if the weather is nice & you don't mind the sea birds, it looks like a nice place to sit. The sea grass salad & vegetable soup were both very good.

“Great place to spend an afternoon.”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Good food & great view. Watch ships coming into the port right in front of the place. See how many varieties of seagulls & pelicans you can count, but don't leave your table unattended, 'cause the gulls will be on the food in a second. Everything I have had there is good. It's a must see when in Corpus & try to sit outside for the full effect.

“Great food and views”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Hester's has two locations in Corpus. This one in the Art Museum is lovely. It has a nice view of the bay and my husband and I enjoyed watching two tugs going out to escort a tanker while eating. I had the Griddle toast - 2 portions of Challah bread coated in sugar and cinnamon served with fresh fruit. It was excellent - the bread was freshly baked, the portions were more than adequate and overall the taste was sweet but not too sweet. My husband had an omelet which he thoroughly enjoyed. The other Hester's is located on Alameda Street behind The Bleu Frog.
