We had parked right across the street and remembered the review in Trip Advisor so we went in for lunch. A bit rundown and an odd odor. Food was average to good. Service was friendly and efficient.

Stopped for a couple of cappacinos. Seemed to be lots of people enjoying all manner of delicious lunches when we were there. Very good service.

I just love this place. It has that old world throwback diner feel with comfy booths and very friendly servers. Before my server greeted me, I recieved welcoming smiles from at least three others on the staff. What a perfect way to start my visit. So, you are here in La Jolla where they certainly can afford way fancier, but... More

The waffles are " old school" and some with a twist, eggs, bacon sausage. A classic in town I don't miss a chance when I'm back to visit.

Harry's is always phenomenal! There are so many options from healthy to not so healthy. It's always on my list when I make a trip to LJ. After a late night, I had chicken fried steak and waffles. So freakin' good!

Good breakfast selections for the entire family. Even on a Sunday morning, wait was not too bad. Try the Espresso Shake for a caffeine boost that will last all day!

I've been going to Harry's Coffee Shop in La Jolla since I was 12 years old and it never disappoints. The food is solid, the ambience is cozy, and the service is great. It was started by a surfer many years ago and I imagine it hasn't changed much since. If you are looking for a great breakfast or lunch... More

We went to Harry's for the much acclaimed breakfast. I had an omelette which was huge and full of flavour. The hash browns were a bit watery and the scone was very salty. My dining companion had scrambled egg and bacon which he felt was ok. Lots of good coffee and friendly efficient staff.

My husband is a La Jolla native so meeting here with his family was a must on our trip. Perfect place for families/kids. The menu was tough to choose from. I has the oatmeal pancakes and they were outstanding! Filled me up alllll day.

Went here for weekend breakfast after the Open Aire Market. A local place that has been there for several generations. GREAT breakfast! Choices for everyone, whether you like French Toast or health conscious faire. Prices are good, and you won't leave disappointed. Cool connection to baseball. The founder at one point as a kid was a Brooklyn Dodgers bat boy.... More
