Mollies offers breakfast, lunch and dinner most days. The food is voluminous, fresh, healthy and value priced. Add to that the feeling that everyone knows your name, and cares that you are there, and you have a good feeling about Mollies as the family place to go. We've been going there for over 10 years and don't hesitate to recommend it to all others.

Saturday was hectic.The roads along Santa Cruz, in particular, Highway 1 to Highway 17 southbound was packed with bumper-to-bumper traffic on this rather hot day. We wanted no part of SC, instead, opting for Scotts Valley after spending the day taking our road bikes along the challenging hills outside of Watsonville. We noticed Mollie's off Mt. Hermon Road, took our chances, and had no regrets. Fresh veggies (try the cole slaw) and everything was homemade tasty.
