Midwest Living Review
Located in the bottom level of the oldest commercial building in Nashville, Indiana, Hobnob Corner Restaurant serves old-fashioned meals fitting for its historic setting. The Taggart building where Hobnob makes its home was originally erected as a dry goods grocery in 1873, later becoming Miller's Drugstore and Fountain Service before finding its footing as a restaurant in 1973. Original oak fixtures, old apothecary items and the soda fountain counter remain in the eatery, and the building is listed on the National Historic Register. Hobnob is an early-morning gathering spot, serving hearty plates of eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, pancakes, hash, oatmeal and that favorite Hoosier staple -- biscuits and gravy. A counter up front near the cash register displays scrumptious-looking cinnamon rolls, pecan buns, scones, cookies and other baked goods made fresh in-house daily. The two-egg breakfast with toast and ham, sausage or bacon ($6.95) keeps hunger pangs at bay well through lunch, and the bacon and ham both have great country flavor. Two big, fluffy buttermilk pancakes (also $6.95) arrive with a side of flavorful country-style bacon; skip the syrup and smear on the fresh strawberry preserves instead. There's nothing terribly fancy here at the Hob Nob, just good basic breakfasts in a casual country-style atmosphere. The lunch/dinner menu ups the ante somewhat with soups, quiche, lasagna, sandwiches, cheesecake, and a short-but-pretty-darn-sweet little wine list to boot.
