“Amazing Breakfast!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

The ollaliberry pancakes, the raspberry pancakes and the french toast are ridiculously good! Order the sausage gravy with biscuits to split and you won't be sorry. The only downside is the ridiculous wait on the weekends.

“A bit on the tired side”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

It seems to have lost it's mojo, with sort of a 1950's atmosphere and food to match. Service was nothing to get excited about either, but the prices were ok. It just seems as if it would benefit from an overall update. You won't get poisoned but probably also won't go away thrilled by anything.

“A treasaure!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

I like unusul breakfasts and appreciate flexibility in letting me get all that I want. Went to Holly's twice for breakfast during out 2 day stay and I loved it. While I didn't get the carrot cake pancakes (which sounded very good to me), I did have a great omelette one day and eggs florentine (with a side of linguica sausage and avocado) the next. They have cappuccino, latte, mocha coffees and a lighthearted, but food-serious, friendly feeling that made it a great place to start the day.
