We went here as a family with three kids, and they were able to happily seat us. The food here is unique, but in a good way (i.e. offering a smoothie as a side option). I had the eggs benedict, which was superb; cooked to...More

This is a wonderful place to have a delicious non-touristy (no women in old world outfits serving crepes) meal. Excellent service and great food (the Delicious omelette is quite delicious!) It was fast as well- great!

The Hobbit is one of those places where everybody has a space and everybody is welcome. Families, couples, friends, all seem to be able to have a good time. We had a great dinner with excellent food, and our quirky waiter made for great entertainment.

Amazing French Onion soup, elk steak and salmon tartar. The wine was recommended by their friendly staff and was well within budget and accompanied our meal perfectly. A great restaurant just a short walk outside the old city walls. Well worth it!
