Well recommended...but...

Access to a table was very fast, even though the place was buzzing. Good service, good coffee and they do have honey for those of us who won't use sugar. The plates are hidden beneath a ton of food. While it seems most people love their hash browns, those potatoes are NOT hash browns; they're more... read more

Nothing special but it did the job. Right next to the Garden Inn. Very servers. Have to get some coffee cake.

We had breakfast here a few years ago, but I didn't review it then for some reason. I do remember the place being mobbed, having to wait for a table and enjoying our meal despite the hustle and bustle of the place. This time, we showed up at 7:30 p.m. and found the place only partially populated and a lot... More

Back again and again happy. Hobee's has to be one of the most friendly and accommodating restaurants in our Bay Area itinerary. We visit the area annually and invited friends on our second day to dine with us. Nothing has changed. Great menu, friendly waitstaff, and a chance to sit and renew acquaintances. We had the linguini with salmon which... More

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.
