Breakfast started with fun waiter who made a terrific latte, followed by perfectly prepared eggs Benedict. you can tell a lot about a place by the attitude of the people who work there....left wanting to come back tomorrow.

This hole in the wall on Pacific Grove's main drag occupies a downtown corner. Holly's always gets my business each time I return to the area. This is down-home cooking with fresh ingredients, generous servings and very affable wait staff.

Breakfast includes all the traditionals and some very creative specials. Lunch can include temptations like a patty melt with serrano chiles. If you order bacon and eggs, expect extra thick chewy bacon and great country fried spicy taters. Even the Eggs Benedict surprised us as most short order places fall... short. Not Holly's.

Good coffee and bagels, too.

Loved this quaint cafe for breakfast. Visited PG in June with family, and loved our breakfast so much the first day, we went back again the next day! The variety and originality of the pancake selections are astonishing...also try the banana nut bread french toast, the omelets, the Eggs Benedict, and share a beautiful fruit bowl. Great coffee and fresh orange juice, too. We had good service both days, but definitely better the second day (they remembered us). The cafe is within reasonable walking distance to many of the vacation rental homes in PG, which makes it even more appealing.

We had a delightful breakfast here before heading to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the portions were large and the food was hot. My eggs Benedict were delicious!

We finally made it over to Holly's and we were not disappointed. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good and reasonably priced. It is not a very large establishment, but that is part of its character.
