Hobies is an East Lansing & MSU tradition that is ever evolving. It was established over fourty years ago in Trowbridge Plaza at the corner of Harrison and Trowbridge roads in East Lansing. We are now serving our delicious soups, sandwiches, wraps and salads to a third generation of MSU students, faculty and staff as the closest restaurant & caterer to campus!
Hobies is family owned and operated. It is not a trendy chain restaurant. It is unpretentious and comfortable and an ongoing success because we consistently serve great food, close to MSU's campus. We bake our bread fresh each morning and we cut our meats and cheeses every day. We order fresh produce from local Michigan farms.
You will feel at home when you walk on the brick floors and through the stained glassed entryway. You can sit at a table made from the old MSU Breslin Center basketball floor and leave your legacy on the ceiling with years of graffiti from prior patrons. Now, in addition to beer and wine selections, you can order a mixed drink from the bar. Please join us for lunch or dinner, or a casual evening before, after or even during that game.
