“Cool spot with great breakfasts. Always busy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We've eaten here three or four times and always meant to review it. It is our favourite spot for breakfast in Fairhaven, maybe in the whole Bellingham area. The Huevos Laredos are two eggs served over blue corn tortillas, melted cheese & black beans with chipotle ranchero sauce, sour cream & guacamole. It makes a great breakfast. They do potatoes really well here. Their Potatoes O'Brien are well cooked home fries with onion and peppers and are almost a meal in themselves. They usually have an interesting omelet special - we've had smoked cheese, smoked salmon, something interesting with chorizo. All great. You might have to wait a few minutes on the bench for a table but service is fast and once you are at your table you can be fed and out in under 30 minutes. The coffee is good and they make a mean cup of tea.

“Best Breakfast in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The food here was so fresh and delicious! Amazing omelet choices and the potatoes are to die for. The prices are very reasonable and the service is great - the restaurant is connected to Tony's Coffee so the coffee drinks are wonderful as well. There is also a beautiful outdoor garden area to dine in. It is popular on weekends so get there early or be ready for a wait.

“Breakfast 4 Stars - Coffee 3 stars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Harris Avenue Café and Tony's Coffee are connected. Harris closes early leaving only Tony's. The coffee at Tony's is good; but nothing to write home about. But the one breakfast I had at the Harris Avenue Café was outstanding. Had a ham and cheese omelet plate on which they graciously offered to substitute fresh fruit for the bread. Seating on the outdoor patio is best.
