Quick Breakfast

Hubby and I stopped in for a quick breakfast and we were not disappointed! The Eggs Benedict were tasty and done to a soft poach perfection. Husband's chicken fried steak hit the spot. We'll be back for more. Give it a go. It's a Tacoma standard.

After a long 35 minute wait while tables sat empty, we finally managed to get in. It was clear they were having some problems today. The two waitresses were covering the whole place... barely. Between bussing tables, cashiering, and every now and then taking or delivering orders it was clear they were overwhelmed. The actual food was fantastic.

The food is very good. What really makes this place for me is the wonderful view of the park across the street. It makes dining feel a bit more luxurious. The occasional mimosa helps too!

I went in with my twin for a bite and it was amazing! Had the Margarita pizza and Cajun tots along with a few beers and it was an experience that'll make me a repeat customer! The service wast fast and friendly, the cost was very do-able! Especially for Happy Hour!

The Hob Nob is across the street from a beautiful park, Wright Park, in Tacoma, Washington. When I was a teenager, I didn't think it would be cool so I didn't really go there. But now that I'm a grown-up and have moved away, it's one of the places I always have to go to at least once when I'm... More

The locals said this little gem of a diner serving good old fashion American comfort food plus breakfast all day is the place to be for a good price. Most of the diners were having breakfast with a good portion of food. My friend and I had burgers. The burgers were good and the fries were also. Fresh OJ. The... More

You're going to think you want to eat here because you're hungover, hungry and nothing else is open until 11. Don't do it. The service is incredibly slow and the food isn't worth it. You will be regretting this decision the rest of your day and your stomach will remind you....the rest of the day

Our first meal in Tacoma was breakfast at the Hob Nob. A well known landmark I was not impressed. Food was pretty regular. The highlights were interesting potatoes served with the eggs and the best thing was the syrup came warm which was good because my French toast had already cooled off. Breakfast was $37 before tax and tip for... More

This is diner food, one of the several restaurants owned by the same people in the area. This is one of their best. Very pleasant dining room with large windows that look out onto Wright Park and a small but lively bar. We like their home-made wine. Service is attentive without rushing you. They serve breakfast all day. I can... More
