“The cheese blintzes will make you happy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

This little spot is a blast from the past. The breakfast will make everyone happy. I had the blintz--yummy, creamy, covered with berries and whipped cream. Husband had the grand omelette with Swiss cheese, covered in salsa and served with two of the best biscuits I've tasted. (And that's from a Texas girl! Don't tell my mama!). Waitresses and staff were helpful and efficient.

“Great traditional style breakfast spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Came to La Jolla for my bday and my wife is a big breakfast person - we got lucky and found Harry's! This is the oldest family owned restaurant in La Jolla. I ordered the BW Benny which was created by a bus boy. It sounds kind of gross but it tasted amazing. It's a golden waffle (soft and semi sweet) with bacon cooked in the batter / a piece of ham / 2 strips of bacon and 2 Benedict style eggs topped with Hollandaise sauce on top - crazy but good! My wife got the omelette one day and it was too much food for her though she loved it and the next day got bacon and eggs which she loved. Prices range 10-15 bucks which was kind of high for breakfast but it was great taste- quality and they were really fast- also let friendly!!
