This place is why you get up in the morning. Breakfast to die for! Everything you want in a great authentic breakfast diner. Order what ever happens to be your favorite breakfast dish and top it off with a short stack of oatmeal pancakes. Awesome place!

Just a fantastic family run type of plCe. Good prices and great service. The Greek omelet had tons of the best feta cheese on top. Yum. And, where do you go that on your bill at the end do you get a hand down heart on it.

The scrambled eggs tasted like good scrambled eggs. The hash brownies were very buttery/greasy and definitely not the best that I have had. The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The... More

This place will take you back in time and is one of the oldest restaurants in La Jolla and all of San Diego. The breakfast is amazing. There is a reason why there is always a line out the door and that is because this is the place to go for breakfast and brunch in La Jolla

I have had breakfast, at 'Harry's', since 1969! However, since I moved to La Jolla in 1989, I enjoy breakfast here more often! The service is very efficient, the food is very consistent , in quality. The selection is 'All American"+'Mexican-American' plus if you need 'egg white' omelette's this is the place! One can up-grade to fruit, instead of hash... More

From the Hash to the chicken fried steak & gravy, to the waitresses and the decor, it's like a breakfast time machine. The counter in the winter, the patio in the summer, it's always great!

What a great little gem this restaurant is! Such a cute little place with great food and service! All of our food was fresh and came out quickly. We say outside and enjoyed talking with the friendly locals.

If you want golden brown waffles at a good price, go to Harry's in La Jolla. It is open for breakfast and lunch and is a local institution. The food and service is great. I often see people I know there. Go around seven before it gets crowded.

Great, old-fashioned breakfast spot with a large menu and very friendly waitresses! Fun to watch the local regulars hang out - wished I was one of them!

Old time diner with delicious reasonably priced food. We all left full & happy! Oatmeal bacon pamcakes were the best!
