Thought we would give Holly’s a try for lunch on a recent visit. Server, food, comfort level all excellent. Even has a senior menu with a little smaller portion yet still plentiful. Breakfast also served.

We stopped for breakfast after passing up a couple other places. Good choice! It was busy, which is always a good sign. Our waitress was friendly, the coffee great! And breakfast was huge! Stop in when you're in the neighborhood!

We came here on a Sunday morning for an early brunch. We were originally told that we would have to wait 20 min for a table, but were pleasantly surprised when they called us within 10 min. The waitstaff was a little disorganized, and it...More

If you leave Holly's hungry, you are a very extraordinary and unique person! There are blackboard specials, including main dishes (and pies!). Service is simple and direct, and the food is well-prepared.
