Hobbit Cafe has been pleasing Lord of the Ring’s fans and hungry Houstonians for decades, even before the movies were created. Complete with a fresh and tasty menu that features sandwiches, burgers and other pub food, Hobbit Cafe’s fare would get a nod of approval from any Hobbit, a being who just so happens to eat six times a day. Step into The Shire at Hobbit Cafe in Houston.
Born in 1972, Hobbit Cafe may appear to be a fan-crazed, themed restaurant. However the comfortable atmosphere and spacious outdoor deck, make this cafe simply a great place to enjoy a burger and a brew. But don’t leave without browsing through the Lord of the Ring’s memorabilia found in the cozy interior while a creepy Gollum gazes over your shoulder from the corner.
The menu here has everything both a Hobbit and a Texan would enjoy with hefty sandwiches, burgers and even Tex-Mex items. For the first 10 years, Hobbit Cafe was strictly vegetarian. You’ll find more dishes here now, but vegetarian items are still heavy on the menu and are full of fresh ingredients like avocado, sprouts and the very popular tabouli. Carnivores won’t be disappointed either with stacked burgers and fresh seafood items. Don’t miss out the great craft beer on tap too. The beer enthusiast will have nothing to complain about while dining at Hobbit Cafe.
Furthermore, a breakfast or brunch at Hobbit Cafe is good enough for Tolkien himself to enjoy. From pancakes to omelets to even migas, the brunch menu here is on par with other topnotch brunch spots in the Bayou City.
It seems Hobbit Cafe’s popularity isn’t a recent phenomenon. For 40 years, the cafe has served locals, tourists and even celebrities. Neil Young, Jack Nicholson, Woody Harrelson and the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd are among the long list of celebrities that have dined like Hobbits at Hobbit Cafe.
No matter if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan or not, Hobbit Cafe is a one-of-a-kind restaurant that should be on your list of must-visit Houston eateries. With a menu even Frodo would approve of, it’s no wonder why Hobbit Cafe has been feeding hungry Texans for decades.
