This is where many locals have breakfast and/or coffee in the downtown area. It had been years since I’d had breakfast there. I’d forgotten how good breakfast was there. On arrival at Harvey’s Bakery & Coffee Shop, I was greeted and seated immediately. The waitress took my order for decaf coffee at $2.10 and the Two Eggs & Toast breakfast... More

Harvey's is a bakery, but it also serves breakfast and lunch. For breakfast I had corned beef hash, poached eggs, and home fries. Everything was cooked exactly how I would have myself. The decor is outdated and somehow that makes it all the more homey and friendly. I can't imagine it any other way. Excellent food, cooked well, and friendly... More

My father grew up on Harvey's maple squares and it is a taste that had been passed down through the generations. Even my wife, who isn't a pastry person, can't help but sneaking by from time to time to satisfy her taste buds. I don't know what it is but they are unbelievable. The rest of the food in the...

My husband and I grew up in Dover and return often. There always must be time in visiting for one or two trips to Harvey's so we can get their famous, famous maple squares at breakfast and stock up with other bakery items for roadside snacks. The bakers come in in the wee hours to make the most luscious looking... More

I took my 5 year old grand-daughter and she loved sitting at the bar with the little chairs. Our food was great and the staff very friendly, I loved the fact that they gave us a sample of one of their bakery donuts on our breakfast plate. Thank you!

Friendly staff, good food. We were there for breakfast, and it was good, but seems a bit pricey compared to other places in the area.

Nothing special here, but still, great tasting food. I love their pastries. My aunt and I like to order a small cake for my mom here on her birthday, which she usually loves. Again, nothing too out of the ordinary.

Harvey's is an old fashion diner type of setting, a great little Bakery with a good selection of pasties, cakes, cookies, breads, etc. They have excellent Breakfast with daily specials. Parking is on the street, or out back in parking lot, during the week there is Meter ticket payment for parking, weekend is free parking.

Open until only early afternoon. Breakfast and lunch menus are extensive with daily specials. And the bakery....I love their bakery. I usually go just for the bakery items. Crispy and flaky items consistently: cream horns, pastries. Very soft donuts, breads and pastries. Frozen pot pies are GREAT: pork and chicken.

Visited Dover with a friend who sleeps later than I do, walked to this little place for coffee and the folks there were very nice. The coffee was good, the regulars were charming. I didn't partake of the pastries, they looked really good, though.

Thank jelun
