Stopped in for an iced chai tea & slice of lemon blueberry cheesecake. Great decision. Perfect treat on a warm afternoon. Very busy inside so sat outside. Great ambiance, friendly staff. Delicious treats. Cheesecake slice was HUGE. Will definitely return. Don't hesitate to eat here....More

We have visited all 3 locations and love the food, atmosphere and service! Hester's is great for breakfast, brunch or lunch. You must have one of their cakes, cookies, scones or other pies!

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!
