The restaurant is nice, the staff is great, the pancakes taste well, the kids menu is superduper, the restaurant company supports donations - I would have given five stars if they had made a real cappuccino and not made one from powder.

So glad you enjoyed your visit, save the cappuccino. I'm not sure what happened there. I can assure you that we have an espresso machine and use freshly ground beans from America's Best Coffee. Please email me at efike@hobees.com and I will arrange to have your next espresso drink on us. Happy holidays! More

Very friendly staff. Scrambled eggs plain are good. French toast is good. The pancakes are pretty good. The coffee is ok. It's noisy for hard of hearing old folks as we four are.

Thanks so much for the positive comments on food and service. Regarding the noise level: The volume in the main dining room can be high. For your next visit, request to be seated in the "alcove" area. It is less noisy there. More

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
