The cinnamon tea at Hobee's is the big reason that I come back. The tea has a bite! I also think that the food is fantastic - huevos rancheros with a blueberry muffin is the perfect brunch.

Hobee's is a local tradition for breakfast. They also serve breakfast for dinner. I'm picky about my over easy eggs and I've always had my eggs cooked to my liking on the first try. You also get a choice of warm coffee cake or toast with your breakfast. We always choose the coffee cake. Sometimes a co-worker orders a full... More

I had been to Hobee's on an earlier visit to Palo Alto --- fabulous array of choices on the menu including breakfasts served all day long; they are famous for their hash browns -- served in a variety of combinations. Tasty, healthy food at reasonable prices in a very pleasant "down home" setting. If I had a quibble it was... More

Visited Hobee's for dinner on my first night in the bay area. The overall experience was great. Service was quick, portions are huge and the different dishes i tried were good. Overall, this restaurant seems to be trending towards fresh/natural dishes, and for the price you pay its worth the visit.

We had nice, simple meals here. The place was quiet and relaxed. Not too expensive. Would recommend it for a family meal.

Breakfast is always a treat at Hobee's. There are many choices and good prices. There is usually a wait. The blueberry coffee cake is amazing. Service is friendly and good.

In an expensive area this is a remarkable combination of price and quality. Extensive menu with good fish and chicken dishes with sandwiches and lighter items. Table wines and tasty appetizers. Good for couples and families with children.

Palo Alto has many different hotels offering pretty much the same mundane breakfast. If you're looking for something a little bit different and favored by the locals, Hobee's is the place to visit. There's usually line outside it when it opens at 7.00am and it fills up quickly. Service is casual and friendly, but efficient: these guys have been doing... More

A typical Hobees ...too crowded and mediocre services. Not worth the trouble for the quality of food.
