“Coffee is great, fun place to people watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We didn't have breakfast next door but the coffee was great and worth the few minutes it took to prepare. This is obviously a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. I had a pumpkin cake which was moist and flavourful!

“Lovely place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Friendly waitress, amazing OJ and tasty food! Great menu options especially for breakfast and it's such a cute old fashioned cozy restaurant. Would definitely come back to this restaurant in Fairhaven next time I'm in Bellingham for the friendly service, cheap prices and decent food.

“Good place for breakfast while waiting for the train”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

You can have an average type breakfast and cuppa joe while waiting for the train, if they're open. It seems to be a bit inconsistent with food quality, wait staff, and hours of operation.

“One vegetarian and two non vegetarians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We left early from an excellent long weekend heading north back into Canada from Port Townsend WA. Not having breakfast with the plan of finding something down the road. We found Harris Avenue Cafe; from the outside looking in it looked promising, lots of people inside. One vegetarian and two non vegetarians sometimes poses a problem. The menu was excellent for all of us as the coffee. The atmosphere is great and I’d guess some local artist was displaying his watercolors on the wall; really like that touch. The staff and service were excellent. We’d eat here again. I love when a cook really knows what an "easy over" egg is.
