Hobee’s Makes List of Best South Bay Breakfasts

Influential web site  included Hobee’s on its exclusive list of the South Bay’s Best Breakfasts. (We were listed first, so we like to think we topped the list!)  According to the post’s author Joanna Metheny, Hobee’s earns kudos for “cheesy hash browns, frothy smoothies, delicious omelets … and the mile-high blueberry coffee cake, which, served warmed with a generous pat of butter, has no equal”.

Hobee’s Coffeecake Featured in New Batali Book

We’re delighted to be included in the new book by rockstar chef Mario Batali. “The Big American Cookbook” compiles 250 iconic recipes from around the USA. Batali includes a version of our world-famous coffeecake. (We keep the original recipe close to the vest.)

Here’s how the publishers describe Batali’s latest: ” With over 250 simple recipes celebrating the treasures of the state fairs and the dishes of the local rotary clubs and ethnic groups. Batali has interpreted these regional gems with the same excitement and passion that he has approached traditional Italian food. Covering the Northeast/New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Gulf Coast, the Great Lakes, the Heartland, the Southwest, and the Pacific Coast, this book will share everything from the BBQ styles of Texas, the Smokeys and the Carolinas, to the seafood soups from yankee Boston to the spicy gumbos of the Gulf Coast and the berry pies of the Pacific Northwest.”

The section on Hobee’s asserts that Hobee’s coffeecake “[is] the thing people who leave the southern Bay Area say they miss and they try to replicate.”

This is definitely on our Christmas list!
