Their staff was fun and welcoming. They... More

Although the service is slow, the food is good and served fresh. There are plenty of tables and the place can accommodate a large group as long as you have the time to wait on your orders.

We were looking for someplace to eat breakfast. We found this place Tolly-Ho. Neat, family friendly place. You order at counter, they call you when food is ready. Very laid back, really cool local place to eat! Food was really good and tasty!
