Consistent, Good Food

Hobee's is a long time, well loved dining spot in town. While it's not fancy or pretentious, it is always reliable and good. I'm part of a group of friends that have been coming here for a monthly breakfast for about 15 years. Our group size varies from 4 to 10 & they always can seat us and give... read more

Quaint little place. It looked like there might be a long wait but we got a table in 5 minutes on a sunday, mid morning. Breakfast plates were about $10 - 12 but they were good size meals (hubby and I split an omelet and it was plenty!) Service was friendly and quick.

Go early to beat the crowds. But the line does move at a good pace but be prepared to wait. We usually order the omelets and they are made with real eggs and fresh ingredients. Everything is prepared from scratch here and the coffee cakes are great sellers but a huge portion. We eat here every time we come to... More

They are known for their coffee cake according to my friends. The menu has hash browns as a main breakfast order. You got to love it! They don't have bacon. Who doesn't have bacon. Their hash browns are really home fries. Why would they call them hash browns? The food was good, but I really wanted hash browns. The chicken... More

A very popular place for weekend brunch, especially on re-union weekend for Stanford grads. The wait is worth it as their menu selection is big with some great specials too. Delicious omelettes. Scrambled eggs with sausage is OK. Noise level not too loud.

Eggs benedict many ways and daily specials to boot. We both had eggs benedict - his were classic, mine were southwestern - both were delicious. He also had the pumpkin spice coffee cake. I would have preferred the blueberry, but I could barely finish my eggs!

Good quick eats, large portions, friendly service. We ate here often as it was a variety from our hotel food. Great blueberry coffee cake. Very nice salad bar.

Love Hobee's - have eaten at various ones since about 1982. Moved out of the area, so when in the Bay Area we always try to have breakfast there. Always good service and delicious food. Love their spiced tea. The coffeecake is so big I always have to take half home. The BDBIT (Best Darn Breakfast In Town) is my... More
