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 was in Palo Alto on business and close to my hotel was Hobee's. I went to a relaxed lunch, and had a comfortable time. Hobee's is not a fast food place - which is exactly why I went. I wanted some genuine food and...More

Hobee's is a breath of fresh air in uptight Palo Alto. It hearkens back to the 1970's when the whole vibe in Palo Alto was decidedly different. The menu includes old time favorites - like the surfer smoothie and the tofu scrambler as well as...More

Jenny, thanks very much for your kind words. I especially appreciate the distinction you made about Hobee's not being a typical chain. It's definitely not a cookie cutter operation. Though they share the same menu, each of our Silicon Valley locations is unique. Thanks again...More
