    Favorite Spot For Breakfast

    Harbor cafe now has wonderful covered seating on their outdoor patio now. The food is great, service is great and they are quite dog friendly..

    Don't go in the rain!

    I must say....the food was great! But you only gave them two stars? That is correct! It took us an hour and a half to get seated because we had the dog and a party of 5. It was raining and there is limited seating out side that is covered. That is an issue on a rainy day, however the hostess clearly did not see the big picture and seated folks outside that said they would take first available and instead of seating them inside where there was room to seat them, she sat them outside! Not only did she do this once but twice! By the time we were seated the rain had stopped and they sat us in an uncovered spot, only because we complained. The dog had no place to sit as it was soaked so we asked the manager if we could move to an outdoor table that had just opened up. We even offered to go, take out drinks and coffee cups and sit while they took their time to clean off the table. We had not even ordered yet. She said, "Absolutely". We get to the table and are about to set down when the waitress very rudely tells us to wait, stand back and proceeds to pull tables apart, spill coffee all over the table while doing so and slamming the dishes while stacking them! None of us could believe it. At this point everyone wanted to leave but my 3 year old grandson, who was behaving better than the waitress, was hungry and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel for him so I convinced them to stay. Thank God they sent a very sweet, young man to wait on us and he did so with a smile and speed! The food was fantastic! They didn't even offer to take anything off our $68.00 check after all of this and I still tipped our waiter. Why? Because the series of unfortunate, albeit avoidable events leading up to us being placed in his care were at no fault of his. Will we be a return costumer? Probably not.

    Great food, Super dog friendly!

    We went for breakfast. We arrived at 10:00am and had a 30 minute wait for 2 people. It's really busy. There were a ton of people with their dogs on the patio. They even have a doggie menu. The only reason I didn't give 5 bones is because of the long wait for only 2 people. But will definitely go back because the dogs loved it an the food was yummy! Awesome you can order drinks at the outdoor bar while you wait too.

    Great Cafe

    So glad I found this place. Excellent food, and staff. There were already a few dogs there so we all got to have fun. The outdoor patio was very just perfect. Can't wait till I come back.

    Breakfast and lunch only; we recommend the fabulous fish tacos and delicious bloody maries. Outdoor patio full of patrons and dogs. Friendly wait staff.
