Good breakfasts, excellent Americanos, sit under trees in the back courtyard

Located in the oldest commercial building still standing in trendy and historic Fairhaven (the favourite neighbourhood of Bellingham foodies, we were told at our hotel), we at first missed the Harris Avenue Cafe (really a restaurant) until we went inside the adjoining Tony's Coffee and saw the... read more

We have been going to the Harris Cafe for 18 years and today's visit was the first (and last!) time we have been disappointed. Clearly new ownership and/or chefs as: 1) The food was bland. My husband ordered the salmon burger and the fish was overcooked and lacking flavor. His favorite item from this cafe is their yam fries -... More

Waiting for the stores to open, slipped in for coffee. It was inexpensive compared to the "s", and very local and charming. The bathroom facilities though, were a little scary, and non-accessible (shame on you).

Great menu and really fast service. Would definitely return! Sat down in the restaurant and had our breakfast sitting in front of us in no time.

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
