Got there early, just after opening, no wait for sitting outside, 10 minutes for inside. By the time we left at 0830, queue was down street and wait about 30-45min. Food was good, service OK. Toilets in separate part of building and disgusting.

We had breakfast here. It was a bit of a wait to get a table, even early in the morning. The food was quite good, and so was the service. It felt very much like a place for tourists though, but it is sitting in that part of town.

Food was ok. Service was quick. Standard menu, nothing exciting. Fairly pricey for quality of food but that is the same for most places in fishermans wharf. Wouldn't rush back.

I'm not sure why there is always a long line at Hollywood cafe. The food was average. We went for breakfast. The seating options were minimal and very tight perhaps the reason for the love not wait. The highlight was the over sized hash brown which seemed to be served under most of the dishes. Don't waste your time.

We ate breakfast here and it was great. I ordered french toast, eggs and bacon. It also came with a large portion of fresh fruit. The orange juice taste like fresh squeezed. The cafe is small, show up early or get ready to wait in line.

Be prepared to queue to eat here, but it is worth the wait! Pancakes were delicious and the portions were huge. Only problem is the service - obviously it is busy and there is a quick turnover, but the staff could act like they care about you, rather than just dumping the food and the cheque on the table, and...

We went to Hollywood Café last September and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were ample portions of food, the service was very good and, overall, the place seemed to be cleaned. During the last year, things have changed: the service was horrendous and we were pretty much ignored unless we flagged down someone and asked for coffee or for our needs... More
