“Holiday Kids' Night Was Great”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

My family came here to relive the deliciousness that is their blueberry coffee cake, having moved out of the area a decade ago. The cake and the restaurant have changed little in that time. What made this visit special is that we stumbled across a kids eat free special Easter celebration. The manager, despite being temporarily understaffed, set up a really cute egg-painting station and invited us to join the fun! I'm impressed that one person can do so much so well.

Thank Steve B

“Good Breakfasts, Soups and Salad Bar”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Hate the music they play, but other than that, there is little to complain about here. I've become a regular; however, I think that Sweet Tomatoes has a greater variety on the salad bar. They also have a gluten free menu.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Hobee's has been our go-to place for many years, and it never disappoints. Their coffee cake is superb. The blueberry coffee cake is a year-round favorite, and they have seasonal coffee cakes like cherry (in honor of Washington's birthday) and pumpkin walnut (in the fall).

They have a dozen variations of hash browns including many vegetarian options. My favorites are hash browns with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole; and hash browns with chicken-apple sausage, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese.

Other excellent offerings include scrambles and omelettes. Try the south of the border omelette with black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa.

They do tend to get busy late weekend mornings but often have complimentary coffee while you wait.

“Hobee's Again at Last”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

After a 12 year hiatus, my wife and I wanted to visit Hobee's again. It turned out that Hobee's in Sunnyvale was just down the street from Best Western's Sunnyvale motel where we were staying, so we walked to Hobee's for a breakfast of cinnamon tea and a gigantic hunk of blueberry coffee cake. Both were just as delicious as they were when we lived in the Bay Area. You can't beat this coffee cake, at least, I can't. BTW Hobee's is selling a big old pan of blueberry coffee cake OR a big old pan of apple walnut coffee cake for $14.95 or so each. Of course, Hobee's has other good food; I'm just a coffee-cake nut.
