“Terrific service. Great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Our family went there for breakfast. We had a large group from a one year old to grandparents. They were so friendly and accommodating, especially with the kids. The food was excellent and the selection was great. Loved it!

“Our favorite breakfast in Bellingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

My husband and I love Harris Ave Cafe - it's our favorite breakfast spot in Bellingham.

Weekends are fairly busy but with Tony's Coffee & Espresso next door, you can add your name to the waiting list, go into Tony's to order your coffee, and relax until your table is ready.

The waitstaff is prompt and very friendly. For breakfast, we love their Eggs Toulouse (incredible tomato cream sauce bennie), their Huevos Laredos, and the Texas Taters. We also love to order a side of tasty Hempler's bacon and their fruit plate.

“Great spot for breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Harris Avenue Cafe has never failed to to provide an excellent breakfast. The ingredients are always high quality. The coffee is excellent. My wife and I rarely go for lunch, so I can't speak to that. I pretty much always have the same thing: black bean huevos laredo with excellent grilled chorizo. It's always delicious. Some ti mes the edges of the tortilla are overcooked. My wife chooses different dishes. She always likes them. She always offers me a taste, and I like them, too. There are specials that are very good, too. On the rare occasion I forego huevos laredo it's for one of the specials. And those are always good.

The service is very good, courteous, and attentive. The servers also clear the tables, which I find a tad unsanitary. They really could use a busboy.

The atmosphere is very pleasant. The prices are fair. It's not very expensive. The tables are mostly spaced too closely, especially in the center of the room. On Saturday and Sunday mornings the place is packed and there can be a wait. Make sure a server puts your name on the list. The restaurant is located in the Fairhaven business district, which has great shopping and a great atmosphere.

Harris Avenue cafe isn't perfect, but it's very, very good, and well worth a visit.
