“Once A Week Regular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

I eat at Harry's once a week and always look forward to it. I like eating at the counter because I can see what's going on with the wait staff and kitchen. (Okay, it kinda entertains me). A lot of regulars sit at the counter and everyone is very friendly. The food is very good and I've tried numerous things on the menu. If I receive something that isn't perfect, I feel comfortable enough to mention it and it is alwasys made right. The wait staff is constantly busy and always friendly. Once in a while I will eat there two times in a week.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had a great breakfast at Harry's. The portions were very large and fill you up. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather and views of the city. They seem to do a good business and the food proves it. I had an omelet for $11 which I thought was pricey, but that seems to be the going rate for breakfast in California.

“A Little Piece of History in La Jolla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Don't shy a way because you see a line in front of the restaurant. Parking is in the rear and the line is sign of good eats because this is where the locals go. The staff are friendly and have worked there for many years. The cooks are fast and efficient too. My favorite is the greek omlette with spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese. You could easily share this plate. The children's favorite is the egg and cheese burrito. It is as big as they are. Don't overlook the cinnamon rolls!
Recommend.
