The sandwiches and burgers are the stars at the Hobbit Cafe, particularly the Martinique burger, a mountainous half-pound patty of Angus beef with so many messy toppings that you practically need to be hosed down when done eating. We still can't figure out how the Hobbit prepares its delicious tabbouleh, but we'll have to keep ordering it at this little house near Upper Kirby until we can reverse-engineer the recipe at home. It's all enough to make even Smaug the dragon happy.

The only drawback to the Hobbit Cafe is that the parking is pretty abysmal and the service (while fantastically friendly accurate) can be slow.
There was a time when we couldn't imagine the Hobbit Hole existing anywhere other than the ramshackle, shire-like house on Shepherd, and we doubted its ability to survive in its new incarnation -- The Hobbit Cafe -- and new location, on Richmond. Defying expectations, the cozy little restaurant is just as popular now as it always was, and the vegetarian-oriented food is no exception.
