Surprised

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... read 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!!

Had a Fantastic breakfast here while on business travel recently. The resturaunt is down the road from the marriott courtyard. I had the de anza hashbrowns which was excellent. Colleagues of mine had omelette which were huge and served with an enormous slice of delicious walnut coffee cake . The service was top notch too. Excellent service and great food... More

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.

A stones throw from the Hilton Garden Inn, as well as many other hotels. The Hobee's restaurant is an amazing cute little local joint. Although, I only had breakfast there, it was booming with a regulars local Sunday crowd. The wait staff was very warm and welcoming. The speed and efficiency of the service , amazing! I had one of...

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 like O'Brien potatoes without... More

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
