“One vegetarian and two non vegetarians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We left early from an excellent long weekend heading north back into Canada from Port Townsend WA. Not having breakfast with the plan of finding something down the road. We found Harris Avenue Cafe; from the outside looking in it looked promising, lots of people inside. One vegetarian and two non vegetarians sometimes poses a problem. The menu was excellent for all of us as the coffee. The atmosphere is great and I’d guess some local artist was displaying his watercolors on the wall; really like that touch. The staff and service were excellent. We’d eat here again. I love when a cook really knows what an "easy over" egg is.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I had lunch here twice in a month. The first time I had the BLT and yam chips. Next was a burger and salad. Both excellent.

“excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

fun and busy place with really good food (omelets in particular) and very good staff. reminds me of Streamliner Diner on Bainbridge Island. Attached coffee side makes it easy and they work together.
