I love Holly's!! The portions are a great size, variety is perfect and always super friendly in there. They could use some variety on their milk selection but that is super picky. I'd recommend this spot for a great family breakfast.

We dined here on a weekday for a late breakfast around 11:30. I had the house specialty apple oat pancakes which I found rather dry even with syrup and butter. If I wanted Vermont maple syrup, the cost was $2 more. Really? Also, $4.25 for...More
