This is an older coffee shop with tons of history. Pictures on the walls are fun to look at, large menu with a variety to chose from. Friendly staff, centrally located with parking in the back

We stayed in La Jolla for a week after Christmas and Harry's was our regular breakfast place as it was just a short walk away. Great food, great service, would highly recommend if you're looking for a traditional diner experience.
