“Great food, great service, needs to turn on air conditioning.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I love this place the food is fantastic, the service is gre, the atmosphere is even cool wirhe sch table being a different piece and different artwork all around. However the fact that they have they air conditioning set to 8do degrees in the middle of Carbondale summer is rediculous. Prepare to sweat if you go. For me this isn't enough to stop goijg but it certainly wouldn't hurt

“Great Find”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I love Harbaugh's. It is affordable, the food is great, and the wait staff is friendly. A funky little place that is great to start the day for breakfast or lunch.

“Easily the best breakfast in town”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Harbaughs is far and away the best breakfast in town. Open 7 days a week and usually a line out the door this place gives you a variety of options that other greasy spoons in town don't offer. I am a life long Carbondailan and for years Mary Lou's was the place to go but no question Harbaughs is the king of Carbondale when it comes to breakfast.

“Tastes Like Cake!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

If you're looking for some incredible, early morning, comfort food, look no further. Chocolate chip pancakes, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, they've got it all.

“Best place for breakfast”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This is definitely the best place for breakfast in Carbondale. This is where i ate with my parents anytime they came down for a visit. Sometimes it can get really busy, and you have to be ok with eclectic, cluttered decor. Hippie-ish! But a nice little joint.
