Overly hyped but still good food...

We actually had breakfast and lunch on separate days at Hobee's Restaurant in Palo Alto. Both were good meals but their breakfast was the better of the two. Lunch had us trying the Soup and Salad Bar and their Club Sandwich. We had planned on having omelettes for breakfast but ultimately decided on... read more

The coffee and coffeecake were amazing! The rest of the meal was just ok; nothing that stands out. The decor felt a bit dated, and has sort of a hawaiian theme, yet I didn't see any authentic hawaiian breakfasts on the menu, so I'm not sure if that's intentional.

A decent selection of american and Mexican food. Good for quick/light evening dinner. They have some specials on Thur/Fri, which seemed to be attractive to the some of the locals.

Recently went here for dinner for the first time. I have been to Hobee's on past visits, but only for breakfast, which is very good! The dinner menu is limited to mostly sandwiches and burgers, but there are a few selections if you don't want to each too much bread. I had the chicken breast with a Hawaiian sauce on... More

A fresh menu, but felt like I was at grandmas house. The summer special menu was nice and my salad was huge and delicious. The cinnamon tea was good. Lots of vegetarian options

Going to Hobee's was a interesting choice. The outside, which needs updating was pleasant. The interior really needs updating. The chairs are to short for the tables. The table was clean but worn. I ordered a pasta dish that was just great. It had different vegetables that were cooked perfect. They were crisp. My companion had a breakfast dish that... More

Hobee's is absolutely awesome. We visited Palo Alto and were strongly advised to visit Hobee's - and we were not let down. The staff, atmosphere and food were all delightful and catered for vegans and vegetarians within our party. Strongly recommend this restaurant!!

Clean, eclectic, and servers always helping out. Great food and a really fun time. We almost decided to go there for Mother's Day brunch instead of to a much more expensive nearby hotel.
