Good selections without having an overwhelming list. Nothing fancy, just plain good food. They do serve a coffee cake that is enough to feed 3 people!

When living in the Bay Area, I took my editing to Hobee's at least 3x/week for breakfast any time of day. Great, healthy food. Great service. Great cinnamon tea.

I used to eat at Hobee’s several times a month when I lived in the San Francisco area. Hobee’s was one of my favorite restaurants. I moved away and this was my first visit back to the San Francisco area, and Hobee’s was the first restaurant that I went to eat. I order the vegetable omelet and the blueberry coffee.... More

This place is conveniently located very close to Sofitel Hotel. If you want a good breakfast at a reasonable price this is the place to go other than the restaurant in the hotel.

Hobee's has moved a long way from its 1970's origins in Mountain View as a hangout for sailors who wanted a good tofu breakfast. Since founder Paul Taber's death in the late 1990's, the restaurant has moved gradually into the mainstream. This one is connected to a Motel Six on a slip road between the San Carlos airport and the... More

We were a group of nine for brunch and throughly enjoyed our meal and visit. We did call in advance for such a large group and were seated within ten minutes of arrival. There is a wide and varied menu offered. They are also willing to substitute sides. The server was an entertaining man who worked to meet all of... More

What a wonderful menu and excellent service. This place has come up with more ways to serve potatoes...! The wraps are also a great option, and of course there is their famous tower of coffee cake. I always ask for the generous glob of butter on the side :)

Beth, thanks for the wonderful review. We do love our "designer hashbrowns". Just be warned that "quiet" is often not the case, especially on weekends! More

This restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, but was next to my hotel...in fact, it was the only place where I could eat, in the area. So I did breakfast. I was by myself. There were several open tables but the hostess tried to put me at the one 2-person table right by the serving station. Then when... More
