Wonderful Mother's Day BreakfastHoffman's is an outstanding local restaurant. Great food and friendly service. Very comfortable, although the metal chairs at some of the middle tables feel cheap and out of place. With Open Table, we got right to our table with minimal waiting. They do a good job of handling busy crowds.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit.This was my second visit. The first we went for lunch. We were very bad brunch guests. Nearly half of our party of nine showed up 30 minutes late; okay when we arrived - no line; not so cool by the time we left - a number of people waiting, The staff was more than generous about it. Our food came out promptly. I had a scramble with ham, bacon, cheese, mushrooms. Really yummy! I saw chilaquilles and benedicts being devoured at the table so I would say the feeling was pretty mutual. Very attentive wait staff. We'll be back. Want to try dinner next time with my husband. We'll leave the kids behind this time.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHoffmans is our favorite....amazingHoffmans is our favorite....amazing food, quiet ambience, good prices for excellent quality, and the service is usually world class!!

JUST GO...you won't be disappointed! :)3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific brunch experienceWe thoroughly enjoyed our 3rd visit to Hoffman's. The food is always a cut above the usual brunch offerings: housemade bread and scones, a delicate touch with filler ingredients such as cheese in omelettes, and well-judged seasoning and hollandaise rations. Service was impeccable: Amanda was friendly and upbeat, attentive without being overbearing, and the rest of the team supported her with seamless efficiency, bringing food and refilling coffee. And considering the restaurant was full, the noise level was still very low.
How much did we enjoy it? We bought one of the house's signature "Eggs Ben-Addict" t-shirts, and we don't offer to advertise restaurants' brands as a rule! We love this place to kick off a day out in Santa Cruz.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
