Hobee's Restaurant


Hobee's Restaurant

Hobee's is a chain of sit-down restaurants in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties in Northern California. Paul Taber, the founder, bought the Dairy Belle in Mountain View, California, and opened the first Hobee's restaurant in 1974. A sometime vegetarian and animal welfarist [http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/1998/02/19/MN90846.DTL] , Taber gradually moved the menu away from traditional diner fare to more alternative options, including tofu, humanely-raised eggs from local farms, freshly baked blueberry coffeecake, and a strongly-brewed cinnamon house tea, which has become its trademark beverage. At the time of founder Paul Taber's death in 1998, Hobee's had grown to twelve locations and grossed over $12 million dollars annually.

Hobee's regularly wins the best breakfast and best brunch awards from various Silicon Valley newspapers [http://www.hobees.com/awards.html] . In May 2006, Hobee's was named Best Breakfast/Brunch in Silicon Valley by the Mercury News. [http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/entertainment/special_packages/bestinsv/14594148.htm]
