The resturant needs a serious refit. A stale odour dominates the air. The furniture although rustic is uncomfortable. Staff are friendly and did their best. Food was poor and we sent some back ( no charge given)

Probably the best breakfast in Palo Alto town. You have to visit it at least once. The tofu scramble and the coffee cake are a must try on the menu.

Nice of you to take the time to write! We do get our fair share of location mix ups since several of our locations are located within a short drive of one another. Glad you were able to eventually connect with your friend! More

This Hobee's location has been there for over 25 years. I recently revisited my old neighborhood and was delighted to see Hobee's still in the same location on El Camino Real. It still looks like a dive but the food is good and you absolutely have to try their blueberry coffee cake..it's the best!

Tom, thanks for your visit! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience. We've actually been at that location for 38 years. (Mountain View was the first to open two years before.) Safe travels home and please see us again during your next visit to Silicon Valley. -- Regards, Ed More

This is more of a health type of restaurant, This place has a great breakfast. The coffee cake is HUGE. I sincerely think you should try it though, I liked the blueberry, great for the money

3 of the 4 of is had the springtime scramble special. Veggies sausage mixed I to the many vegetables and some Brie thrown in. Yum!! Well seasoned. Great blueberry coffee cake too. Nice little local spot. A little noisy but adds to the atmosphere. Would go back.

Not only is this homey restaurant full of good food, the folks who work there are warm and friendly. Great place for family gatherings. The aroma of blueberry cake as you walk in the door is something you won't forget. Quite divine!!!

We go to Hobee's every time we're in Palo Alto (about twice a year) and things never change and that's the way we like it. The service is good. The menu stays pretty much the same. We meet or bring friends and can stay as long as we like. It can be a bit noisy but that goes with the... More

I have been coming here for 15 years. Now I'm an expat living in china, this is the place I go to for my first USA meal. One cannot get this kind of American breakfast elsewhere. The breakfast here is simply amazing; lots of variety, fresh, healthy, tasty. There are several hobee's in the area, but this is the one... More

Went for a quick bite in the evening with my wife. This is a breakfast place for all intents and purposes, but they do serve lunch and dinner with pasta, burgers, salads, etc. I had a $10.95 cheese omelette, which was thoroughly mediocre, served with nothing other than toast OR hash browns OR Hobee's seemingly famous Blueberry a Coffee Cake...

So sorry that we didn't live up to expectations. I will certainly share your comments with our PM kitchen crew and review their execution and presentation. I appreciate your comments and am glad your wife enjoyed her pasta pesto. More
