Great sandwiches here! The laguna club and the Texas wave are both amazing. I always get a side of honey mustard to have with the homemade chips!

Hester’s menu has great variety, including unique salads, sandwiches and even quiches. Hester (the person who the store is named for) herself makes almost all the desserts fresh with the only exception (that I know of) being the apple pie that is made with more...More

All three locations in Corpus Christi are excellent. We really enjoy the one downtown in the art museum. Right on the water giving you a great view of the bay. You'll not ever have a bad meal here.
