Introducing Mija Sangria

Hobee’s customers now have a tasty new adult beverage to enjoy (responsibly. of course). Mija Sangria is a fresh and natural bottled sangria made with 100% real unfiltered fruit juice for a true homemade taste. Mija is crafted without any artificial additives or preservatives. It is 100% gluten-free, and packed with antioxidants (3 times as many as a glass of red wine!) Mija Sangria is ready-to-drink (after you shake it for the best taste!), and exceptional when poured over ice and mixed with fresh fruit.

Cheers to Mija Sangria!

The Beyond Burger Comes to Hobee’s

You’ve heard of the “veggie burger that bleeds,” now come taste what the buzz is all about! Hobee’s is now serving the Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat. Packed with 20 grams of plant based protein, this isn’t your grandma’s veggie burger. The revolutionary Beyond Burger looks, cooks and satisfies like beef but is 100% plant-based.

The best part for Hobee’s customers is that the Beyond Burger will be 50% off every “Meatless Monday” through the end of the year!

Hobee’s Hosts Japanese Students

In late March, Hobee’s South Palo Alto hosted 16 Japanese exchange students and their host families for a fun-filled pasta dinner. The exchange was part of the Neighbors Abroad of Palo Alto program which fosters cultural ties with Palo Alto’s eight Sister Cities.

Next month, Japan returns the favor and welcomes a very special one-man delegation to the city of Tsuchiura: Hobee’s former president and co-owner Edward Gerard Fike will represent Palo Alto and run the Tsuchiura marathon, an event that draws over 20,000 runners.

Best of luck to Ed as he embarks on this exciting adventure!

Bring on 2019: It’s Our 45th Anniversary!

Happy New Year to all of our friends and fans around the world!

We plan on marking the milestone with special events, contests and food specials. Stay tuned as we move through this exciting year.

And THANK YOU for supporting Hobee’s during the past four and a half decades!

New Year, New Menu Items

We have some outrageously good new menu items to share with you as we begin 2019. First, though they’re not technically new (they’re a staple weekend offering), Eggs Benedict is now offered seven days a week until 3:00 PM. Choose from Classic, Florentine, Salmon or Huevos Benedictos. These are the items that are making their permanent menu debut: Chocomania Pancakes (chocolate cakes with chocolate chips, whipped cream and fruit); the El Camino Ommie (an egg white omelet with seasonal veggies, organic spinach, Jack and Cheddar cheese, topped with basil pesto); Sweet Potato Hash and Eggs (sweet potato hash with applewood smoked bacon, mushrooms, onion, zucchini, bleu cheese and a touch of maple syrup served with two farm-fresh eggs and blueberry coffeecake or toast); the Spartan Bowl (ancient grains, garlic roasted mushrooms, organic spinach, grilled artichoke hearts, mixed olives, red pepper, Feta cheese and basil balsamic drizzle); and Veggielicious Tacos (corn tortillas filled with black beans, sweet potato, roasted corn, goat cheese, and chipotle cream).

Which will be your new favorite?

Our Instagram #2018bestnine

We must admit that we were somewhat surprised when the magic Instagram generator compiled our nine most popular posts from 2018 into a collage. Of the nine, only one was of food. (Coffeecake, naturally.) Another was our table tent about our “Straws Upon Request” campaign. Yet another was a trippy distorted image of Hobee’s Palo Alto’s exterior. The rest were all of people who make Hobee’s special: late owner Peter Taber and his surviving spouse and former owner, Edward Fike; current CEO Camille Chijate and co-owner husband Daniel; and our Montague crew with San Francisco 49er quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

What do you think of the photos that made the cut? Weigh in on this year’s posts by joining us on Instagram @hobeesrestaurants
