Classic american food (Californian I guess), big portions, some healthy options, very happy with the food. Went twice, service was great first time but very slow the second time

Glad you enjoyed your meals. (My apologies for the slow service on your second visit.) Love your "classic Yank food" description! Need to make it to Brisbane and try some classic Aussie fare. More

Had a really great breakfast here, huevos rancheros to die for, with some chorizo, a hint of cumin, wonderful fresh eggs, crunchy hash browns, what a way to start the day! Friendly service, nice family atmosphere, why would you eat in your hotel?

Great place to have breakfast with friends! Lots of specials, all six of us were happy with our meal. The Coffee Cake is amazing, I always get one to go.

I ate here twice for lunch with colleagues during a training week at a nearby hotel, so the location could not be beat. The first lunch I had a jack cheese sandwich on ciabatta with tomato, pickle, lettuce, and mustard. It was fine - I'm not sure the bread was actually ciabatta (it was pretty big and thus too thick...

The son and wife had breakfast that they loved. I had my favorite of 7 veggie medley with brown rice! Yum....and healthy. Good place... More

I went to Hobee's because it was a favorite when I was in college,and it didn't disappoint. Maybe even better! The Stanford Cardinal Omelet was wonderful. The blueberry coffeecake was as mouthwatering as ever!

This is an easy to miss restaurant but consistently good food and comfortable atmosphere. The wine list could be improved but that's a minor detail

I lived in this area in the 80s and Hobee's was always a favorite. On a recent visit, I was please to discover that it still has the same charm and wonderful food as always. While my diet has changed drastically (gluten free now), I was still able to enjoy a delicious breakfast and drink their wonderful tea. My family... More
