Until a couple of weeks ago, Hoffman's was a nice place to have light food, good cocktails and to listen to live music on weekend evenings. Unfortunately, they have just ceased doing business.

Hoffman separates itself by its live music offerings. The food is relatively good, but great with live music background.

The French onion soup here is the best around, as are the hamburgers. Desserts are all house-made; our favorites are the profiteroles, the brownie sundae, and the warm apple pie with ice cream. Breakfast includes their delicious scones. Omelets are very good and generously sized.
