On our semi annual trip to San Diego we stayed in La Jolla at the Holiday Inn Express. Harry's was just down the street and I am a sit down breakfast person. Went in on a Monday morning and were treated wonderful. Everyone in the restaurant was fantastic drinks and food delivered promptly. The breakfast I had was Chorizo and... More

We were met with a big smile and big menu. If you can't find something you love on this menu you must not be from this planet. First of all the place is really attractive and super clean. Friendly and caring waitress. Outstanding old fashioned, delicious , make you smile for the rest of the day food. Great hot coffee.... More

Had the Bacon and Eggs with Hash browns and Toast- Great bacon and toast- as good as you will get anywhere. Eggs were fine as well. However, the hash browns need significant improvement. Not completely cooked on the inside. I have had much better. When asked if they had home fries the answer was no. Overall a very good breakfast... More

The servers were incredibly attentive and helpful. My husband's sandwich was very good. Mine was very disappointing. I ended up taking out the turkey and ending up with a tomato and cheese with fries. When a server asked how everything was and really looked like she wanted to know, I told her. She apologized, said she would tell the manager... More

I had just the right amount of food: one waffle, two eggs and two pieces of bacon. It was the best waffle I ever had! It was higher priced than I'm use to for breakfast, but typical for La Jolla and well worth it!

Harry's is the best breakfast in La Jolla, the best traditional gathering place for breakfast or lunch in La Jolla, and has the friendliest servers who know you by name in La Jolla. That's because the Rudolph family knows everyone in La Jolla and treats everyone like family... including visitors and tourists. Try the banana pecan waffle or the eggs... More

Went here twice for breakfast. Family of Three (2 adults, 1 teen) friendly service in a vintage style diner in downtown La Jolla. They offer some nice breakfast choices. We all LOVED and tried the following: La Jolla Scramble with Feta cheese w/sourdough toast, Eggs Benedict with rich hollandaise sauce, and smoked salmon omelet. Thank Harry's for the great FOOD...

It had been a while since we had visited Harry's, so we were looking forward to having breakfast there again. Just as great as before! We dined outside on the patio and decided to eat hearty. My wife is a french toast fan, and she loved her order. My eggs, chopped sirloin, and hash browns were excellent. Service was great,... More
