“Always sit at the counter at Harry's Coffee Shop. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

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!

“My favorite place for breakfast since 1969”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a family owned and operated Resturant , in La Jolla , CA. They offer traditional American Breakfast , and lunch . Some items have a Mexican Flare. Family, tourists, and locals eat at Harry's. Most find a favorite dish at Harry's, I love the Riveria omelette. Harry's has provided excellent customer service, since 1969. I eat there once a week!

“Acceptable, but not exceptional.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Recently went for breakfast here on a Saturday morning. 25-minute wait for table. The server did not appear right away. Then she took my coffee order, but pre-packaged half and half was brought instead of low fat milk. Waitress finally returned for my order which was The La Jolla Scramble-- egg whites, spinach and cheese, which took an awfully long time to arrive and were just okay (I ate almost half of it). The toast was good. I have had many better breakfasts elsewhere, and quicker and more attentive service. Definitely too long a wait for this kind of experience.
