My wife and I stumbled upon the Hobbit and are so glad we found it. The restaurant is located off Richmond hidden behind a couple of other places. The restaurant is a cool cozy little place with great patio dining. We started with guacamole and chips, the guac was very good and chips with fresh and crispy. My wife had... More

It is a restaurant that one has to experience. This a true "locals" restaurant. I have enjoyed eating here over the years. The food here is delicious! Check this place out!!

I am surprised to read the reviews and see how many people like this place...maybe I ordered the wrong thing?? I ordered the quesadilla and didn't like it. Maybe I will give it another try and try something else

I visited the Hobbit Cafe this past week. I had heard previously that it had closed. I am not sure why, but happily it is still doing a great job. My first visit to this cafe was back at its original location in the 1970's. During my seven years in Houston, we frequented the cafe to enjoy its wonderful menu... More

My sister and I went today after reading about it on Zagat. It is sort of hidden back in there and parking lot was full. We had excellent service from Dannie. We both had fish tacos. Blackened fish. Great sauce. Loved the mango pics. Will definitely be back

This is a tiny little cafe tucked behind Blue Fish House and Capones Oven & Bar. You pull into the parking lot/driveway between the two and the cafe is on the back on the right. It has inside and outside seating. It does not seem to be wheelchair friendly. I think you could navigate ok but it looked challenging to... More

I have been a loyal customer, albeit not too often since I live out of state. But, I dined there every time I am near or in Houston. My wife and I are Texas Renaissance Festival fans. we visit every year for the last 20. We have an early supper at the Hobbit Cafe before we head to the Woodlands.... More

Something for everyone. Vegans to meat eaters. Wine and beer only. I like the lamb burger. Great service. We really like Jennifer. She can help with wine and beer selection.

Dark decor, very relaxed service. Good avocado burger but bun was so-so and fell apart. Very good fries. Weak iced tea, no offer to refill.
