Local bakery referred us to Harry's for breakfast. Turned out to be quite good, service was good and food was plentiful. Outdoor seating available.

For our stay in La Jolla we ate breakfast at Harry's four of five mornings. Had a different meal every day. Everything from the most simple bacon and eggs to their great French toast, breakfast at Harry's is always great!
