Warm Friendly spot with perfect atmosphere

CAFE is great for original and "standards" for hearty breakfast or brunch, and TONY's coffee is great; always friendly service and good pastries/sweets too!

Great food with a nice, local twist - the wait staff is ok, but not fabulous. Go for a casual dining, but don't expect quiet or privacy. The tables are REALLY close together, so you'll be cozy with your neighbors.

Very nice cafe with a big outdoor space. The food and the service were both good. We enjoyed having breakfast in the early afternoon.

What a disappointing breakfast! Friendly service, but the scrambled eggs--which were ordered soft--were overcooked and dried out. The toast wasn't even toasted, and was flavorless. My spouse had the same thing to say about his omelet: way overcooked. We won't be back to Harris Ave. Cafe!

Ghiradelli and Mexi Mochas are excellent. Good prices and fast service. Great local spot to hang out. Close to lots of other great shops and restaurants

Though the coffee remains excellent, my most recent visit to the Café, the first in a year, was a huge disappointment. My husband's clever version of an eggs benny had two poached eggs--one cooked perfectly, the other cooked hard, and the potatoes on the side were not freshly cooked but rather tired and soggy. I ordered a la carte, and... More

Everything on the menu in the cafe was new to me -- their own creations, I'm guessing -- and it all sounded good. We went there twice during a week-long trip to the area. There was an interesting mix of older folks (like me) and college students in the place. Looked like a lot of regulars. It's in a trendy... More

I stopped in front of this cafe and noted its extensive, reasonably priced menu and the crowd dining inside. So I entered with high expectations for a good breakfast. Our server proved to be prompt and friendly and the food came quickly. What a disappointment! My plate held burnt potatoes, a burnt over-medium egg and a slice of wheat toast.... More

As I've said in my other reviews of cafes in Bellingham, we were here for the day travelling to different cafes sampling espresso. We hit this place at lunch. Perfect timing! The espresso was EASILY better than anything else we tasted in Bellingham. And that's not surprising. They're serving up Tony's Coffee. Their espresso took first place at The America's... More
