My wife and I wanted to go tide pooling but low tide wasn't until 11:00 so we decided to have a leisurely breakfast in Pacific Grove before heading for the beach. Although we checked out a few places on Trip Advisor, it was the visual ambiance of Holly's that helped us decided. This is not at all a large place... More

We were in from out of town and wanted to find a great, non-touristy place to eat near Monterey. Holly's delivered! There was a little wait for a table (hey, it's popular!) but they were organized and got us seated as soon as possible. Wife had the New York Scramble which she loved. I had a breakfast burrito with chorizo... More

My server, Amy, was wonderful! She had a warm, laid back energy about her and was very attentive. The food was exactly what I was looking for, too.

The food was excellent, and Amy, one of the owners, provided a top-notch service. She even offered us coffee to go as we were leaving without being asked because it was a little chilly early in the morning.

Offered more of the traditional breakfasts I am used to with large portions. Food was prepared well and portions were nice and large.

This little corner restaurant has become a destination for breakfast every time we visit the central coast. Holly and her sister have created a great little place, don't worry if there are folks in line out front, they don't wait long,and the menu is simple, well prepared (with love) and you will leave with a full belly and smile on...

I thought this would be a good place for breakfast based on many of TripAdvisor reviews but we were disappointed in the whole experience. Since I am a coffee snob and like GOOD coffee, I asked for a small taste of coffee to see if it was acceptable. Our server hesitated and said he would have to use water to... More
