“It's were all the locals go, enough said!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2009

If you don't like Harriette's you are a stuck-up foodie snob. THAT RIGHT FOODIE SNOB! Lot's of good home cooking, fast service and friendly help. It's a throwback to the good old diner before they started grinding out Perkins and Denny's. Food Network's Guy Fieri should stop by this place on "Diner, Drive-ins and Dives" He would love it.
The prices are great too.

By the way trip advizor it's spelled Harriet's

“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2009

If you want to get away from the normal tourista food-----this is the place! The food is down home good. From the great morning biscuits thru anything you want for lunch, to the evening special you can't go wrong. We ate their 21 times in our three weeks in the keys. The staff is as friendly as your neighbors. They will pull up a chair and chat with you anytime they can. We found the beef brisket (marinated for 18 hrs) superb. Tender and served with mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies and a salad or soup. $10.95. When comparing their quality and prices with other restaurants in the keys they excel. No wonder their the Peoples Choice Award Winners for Breakfast, Service and Value. The locals are glad to expound on Harriettes for you. They certainly are right!

“Big Yellow Suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2009

We were flying up US1 from Key West back to reality and kinda gettin hungry. Thinkin about breakfast we spotted a little yellow restaurant that looked kinda cozy. Cars all over the place and when we got inside it was packed ( thats a good sign ) The waitress greeted us with a smile and seated us right away. Coffee was there before we could even think. We ordered the typical breakfast stuff lots of choices for types of toast , eggs , potatoes EVERYTHING was GREAT . We had home made corned beef hash that was out of this world .Everyone was super friendly and the coffee kept comming . What a plesant suprise....It was the best breakfast we had all week. As we looked around the place we could see proof of what a great place this is. All over the walls are awards from over the last 27 yrs. Best lunch , Best breakfast , Best business , Peoples chopice , Best down home cookin , King of the Jungle. I just wish we had stayed in the upper Keys so we could have spent more time at Harriette's

“Stop for the biscuits !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2009

Start your breakfast with one of their homemade biscuits that are 3 inches thick and are HUGH: they are awesome. A local place with hot well cooked food and very attentive service. It was a place that we went back to time and time again. Everyone is very nice and even suggested other places to go in the area. Good variety on the menu and quick time to get served and to get our food. The price is excellent and quality of food is SUPERB!!! It is a little crowded due to alot of tables in a small area however you don't notice it once you get your food. Well worth the stop and you won't be disappointed. Once you visit once you will be back. Enjoyed the honey they give you for the biscuits.

“A Cozy Cottage Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2009

I had breakfast at Harriette's Restaurant. It's a small cottage restaurant with typical diner fare. The food is great and the price is dirt cheap. The portions a good size (not too large or small). Everyone was very friendly and I never felt rushed. This is a great place to avoid overpriced hotel breakfasts.
