The Hob Nob Cafe has been serving Missoulians since 2002. Located in the heart of town on the Hip Strip, it is a small cafe with a menu that features freshly baked goods and coffee. It offers fast-paced service, a friendly atmosphere, and a delicious breakfast and lunch/brunch menu. Whether you’re looking to dine here with friends or for take-out fare, brisk service will promptly get you where you need to go. When I walked in on a Saturday morning, I was seated right away.
Near the register, the blueberry muffins and scones caught my eye. The blueberry muffin is served nice and warm with melted butter on top. I typically don’t eat burritos for breakfast, but the veggie burrito is too good not to have. It is filled with fluffy scrambled eggs, zucchini, broccoli, tomatoes, and other vegetables and is topped with melted cheddar. Side dishes include sausage, hash-browns, avocado, toast, yogurt, or fruit.
I had never heard of banana bread French toast until I went to the Hob Nob Cafe and I’ll never forget it. This amazing breakfast dish is banana bread cooked the same way as French toast, topped with powdered sugar and syrup and served with a side dish of choice. Sourdough French toast, topped with powdered sugar and syrup, is also a must-try. My personal breakfast preference is yogurt with fruit and granola, so I enjoyed one of the best yogurt parfaits I’ve had in a long while. It was light, sweet and the perfect amount for a morning sweet tooth.
Portion sizes are just right, but I recommend going with an appetite big enough to try a few different dishes.
The Hob Nob is a cozy cafe with a quiet atmosphere where friends can gather for good conversations and enjoy a healthful, homemade breakfast or lunch. It’s a great start to the day. I was very happy with the food and service and will be going back soon for more.
