I am a regular Sunday morning visitor to the Hollow, and find the waitresses very friendly and the food very good. The room is getting shop worn, and the owner has an attitude of disregard for the business and her customers, but the staff overcome these difficulties and make patrons feel welcomed and appreciated.

Hello Harold, I thank you for the constructive feedback. I only wish that after all these years you could have shared this with me personally before going to social media, as it is a shock to read that you believe I do not care about my staff or business. I have been waitressing out front on weekends and some week... More

There's always an amazing stuffed pancake or french toast on the specials that my husband MUST have. The eggs benedict are good here too. I've asked to swap things like potatoes for veggies and they were happy to accomodate my needs! The waitresses we've had have all been fun and friendly. It's decorated super cute and homey. You can go... More

Lots of parking, spacious seating. Food was good - lots of menu options. Service is hit or miss, been here a few times - have had good service & indifferent service.

The breakfast was average. The wait to get in was a bit long and the service once seated was pretty bad. Usually breakfast places get you in and out quick, not this place.

Unusual breakfast offerings and ample parking make this a great place for breakfast any day of the week! But, get up early or you will wait in line!

We two stumbled upon the Hollow Cafe while looking for breakfast. Their menu was as large as any breakfast/lunch place I've seen. The variety was quite amazing. I had the Italiano Omelette while my wife opted for the Quiche special. Both were tops. The service was fine, and the chef came around to ask all the customers about their meals.
