Coffee cake!

I had breakfast for dinner one night during my stay. The place was warm and cozy on such a chilly night. What tied it all together was the ginormous pumpkin walnut coffee cake that came with my breakfast! Amazing ! A must try!

My friend and I both ordered the salmon eggs Benedict. The flavor was decent, but the salmon was NOT fresh; it had a stale taste. And the blueberry muffins were 2nd rate. We have eaten at other Hobee’s in Cupertino, Mountain View, and Palo Alto – all of these are much better than at Ahwanee near 101 in Sunnyvale. Avoid... More

The pasta and the wraps we tried were good and we also liked the all-you -can -eat salad/soup bar. We were too full we have not tried the walnut- coffee cake. The service was efficient too. It was close to the hotel we were staying, Quality Inn. We will come again next time when we visit Silicon Valley .

Everything was great about this place except for maybe location (by a motel 6 and Dennys). The food was awesome and had a large variety. I asked for a pesto and mozz burger which isnt an option on the menu but they made it and it was delicious. Service was on top but not overbearing, and we were neither rushed... More

Only a short walk from our hotel Hobee's became our favorite breakfast site during our stay. Affordable meals with quick service and great food.

Solid local breakfast/lunch/dinner diner with decent table service, homestyle cooking and a definite healthier (relatively) twist on so much cooking. We really particularly enjoy the Eye Openers and the tamale pie breakfast combos. The oatmeal bar is outstanding, and a great value, to boot--blueberries, bananas, granola, fresh strawberries, and all sorts of interesting toppings for $4.95 a bow is pretty... More

The best breakfast in our 3 weeks vacation across The USA. The omelet was really great and what can we say about the blueberry coffeecake. Amazing! Thank you Sergio for your smile.

Visited from out of town and it wasn't that great. I used to go to the campbell and cupertino one a lot but this location felt very dumpy/dated and the food was just okay. Not really worth the trip

I have had good luck with Hobees during breakfast hours. I normally order the Mexican style omlet but I must say you should come for the coffee cake and the pancakes. Wait staff is efficient and friendly.

It will take you back to the sixties, well, almost. They are known for their super coffee cake, but for me, I like the omlets. Perfectly done, nice cold glass of milk. Terrific service, too, and very reasonable cost. Try it, you will like it.
