“Holly's is has been a staple in Pacific Grove and one of my favorites for 20+ years. If you want a good old fashion home cooked breakfast or the best burger in town for lunch this is the place for you. Serving breakfast all day, home made deserts, and a menu so good you will want to order everything there is a reason I go here at least once a week.”

Café
“We all need a fix - There are two in walking distance. One inside Safeway (bottom of the driveway, turn left, across the street 1/2 a block - up). The second one is brand new (bottom of the driveway, turn right, across the street 1/2 a block down). But the Bagel Kitchen is locally owned and VERY good and they have specialty coffee too. ”
