Looks good, but you won't get to their website menus, just a different "sponsored" ad every time you try. I gave up after 5th try... At least there's a "back" button so you don't have to start completely over.

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.

In short, each of our omelets and biscuits were tasty. It was a solid breakfast for us we desired and were rewarded for. The atmosphere is cafe like, old school warm and friendly, with good service. This is our new go to when in town!

Three dots = Average. We had omelettes. Service and omelettes were average. Need a place to have breakfast, it's okay.
