This was a father-daughter outing for a late lunch. I love springtime in Texas. We ate out on the covered porch. It was open, cool and pleasant. The restaurant theme was The Hobbit, so w had things named for Hobbit - sort of. I had the Boudin Burger. Never had boudin before. Reminded me of haggis. She had spinach mushroom... More

The soup I got was bland & seemed like Gazpacho soup without the tomato puree or paste. It was barely warm enough. The salad was the killer, as it was supposed to be a Greek salad but looked like expired or a couple days beyond expiry or best use by date greens with one handful sized piece of plain grilled...

Great place. Pretty cozy (small and cute) and not too crowded if you got at the right times. YUGE portions. I've had a few of the burgers (Buffalo burger is super lean and tasty) and the Hobbit Wrap. The wrap is my favorite. You can probably share it. Not a pricey place either (probably $25 for 2 people)

I have eaten here many times never to be disappointed. Not only a great choice of beer but the food choices are dynamite. We had the curry chicken sandwich and fish tacos and both were outstanding. The service is good and a cool place to hang out.

The Shire theme was just enough to let you get the theme without being over the top or super cheesy. The food was YUM! Two of us got burgers and I opted for brunch. The peanut butter chocolate chip pancake was worth the trip alone!

With a hopefully short term highly restrictive diet, I headed to Hobbit Cafe with a colleague hoping for a "clean" meal. Boy, did I ever get more than that! We were seated immediately and our server got our drink order right away. He was very helpful and patient with my many questions about what ingredients were used, etc. Our orders... More

Good variety of salads, burgers and TexMex plates. Portions are generous. All ingredients are fresh. Good for eating inside and comfortable seating outside. Spacious enough. Servers are polite and helpful. Decent prices. Will come back and would recommend to everyone.

This place is amazing!! As a huge Lord of The rings fan, I absolutely had to come here with my boyfriend. He ordered the BLT with guacamole & egg...it was insanely big. My tropical chicken salad was fantastic as well. Highly recommend!!

Interesting decorations based on the Hobbit franchise. They had some pretty great food options on their breakfast menu, and the portions were huge. I had the avocado omelette, which I really enjoyed, but I think the fajitas were even better. Service was pleasant and fast.
