Skip the nasty Denny's and ihop and go here instead. We came here to have breakfast on a Sunday morning worried that they would be very busy and we would have to wait a long time for a table. There was a wait but not a long wait. The very friendly waitress took our order and we received our food... More

Very quaint coffee shop in the heart of La Jolla, the kind that has its own line of t-shirts and coffee mugs and a vast collection of celebrity photographs and magazine covers on the wall, so you know it’s got to be a local landmark. The food tasted great and service was impeccable. They have private parking in the alley... More

We were here on a Monday morning and it was still busy with locals. Latte was awesome and probably their regular black coffee is just as great. Everything we had was good but the hashbrowns were perfectly crisp on out side and soft on inside. I'm sure this place is crazy on the weekends.

Our hotel suggested Harry's and my friends and I are sure glad they did. I got a bacon, ham, and cheese omelet, hash browns. It was excellent!!! I don't recall what my friends got but they all loved it. I did think it was a little pricey. Overall I would say it was a great restaurant.

This is a classic....great food, terrific service and makes you feel like a 50s diner! There were 5 of us and it was a no hassle place, with waitresses that seemed to read your mind on orders! Thanks for the treat.....not haughty. Parking lot is behind the shop....it's the best bet as on the street parking is tight, especially on... More

Stopped here on my way through La Jolla from here to there, and I'm glad I did; a generous pot of coffee, great OJ and plenty of hearty food. I like my hash-browns a bit more crispy, and my bacon a little less crispy, but perhaps I'm being picky; a very welcome little corner of NY on the west coast... More

Just great food...but even better service. Has a genuine neighbourhood welcome and warm atmosphere. I have visited on several occasions over the years and have never found it anything other than excellent
