Hob Nob Farm Cafe only accepts cash or check, no credit cards, but there is an ATM inside the door, so that's helpful. A quirky place with a quirky atmosphere, Hob Nob Farm Cafe has a covered outdoor porch that's a fun place to eat, people watch, and stare at the mountains. Food options can be a little offbeat, but... More

Sit outside under the new veranda and enjoyed a very different menu. Interesting to combine a lot of Mexican dishes with healthy and local options. All sorts of unusual smoothies and drinks. We had a very knowledgable waitress. Fun to eat outside and watch the foot and car traffic! They do not take plastic!

I was delighted to find such a gem in Boone. It was extremely vegetarian/vegan friendly, but offered several amazing meals for the meat eaters as well. It is cash only, but they had an ATM in the restaurant for a minimal fee. We went back to Hob Nob a few days later, because we liked it so much.

I absolutely loved my food. I got the siracha sandwich with tempeh and it was mouth watering good. The home made bread was delicious, and the tempeh was so flavorful. It reminded me of prime rib, which is hard to come by with meat substitutes. My hubby was equally satisfied with his meal, which says a lot, because he always... More

The food here is average...agree with the fusion overkill reference another reviewer made. We returned a fork and a glass because there was food residue visible-that should have been our first sign. Waiter was slow to greet our table, slow to come back for our order. We ordered chips and salsa to eat as an appetizer- never arrived. Whenever our... More

Maybe it is just the part of the country, but everyone here in Boone seems to be helpful and friendly, and our waitress was a great example. My wife had some tough questions about the food and our waitress must have gone back to the kitchen at least 3 times smiling the whole way. My Tempeh Avocado Melt was awesome,... More

The service was very slow and the wait staff noticed a plate for a shared appetizer was dirty so she said she would bring another. We are still waiting... The food was not that good and was fusion overkill. Not necessary in some cases. Cash or checks only but there is an ATM on location. Good beer selection. Outdoor seating.... More

Dined here this past weekend with 6 other ladies. Eclectic atmosphere and definitely a different twist on the same old tired menu you see any and everywhere you go. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. The menu you had to actually read and ponder over your selection. Fresh local ingredients with interesting combinations. It was nice to sit outside and watch... More
