We happen to be wondering around and found this breakfast place and thought, why not? So glad we did! The food was top notch and the gentleman that serviced us couldn't have been more professional!

So I had the option of the hotel freebie breakfast or Harbaugh's. I chose Harbaugh's and that was the right choice. The Mexican Omelet was unbelievably good. Tasty but not over the top. The service was excellent and environment had a local feel to it. When in C'dale, stop in for breakfast and you will not be disappointed.

Title says it all. Great fresh cooked to perfection food Great quick service. Polite waiters. Homemade corned beef hash is awesome no one else in town has it. I've tried all other places, this is the best. Prices are reasonable too!

We visit Carbondale 3-4 times a year and have for the past 12 years. Corner Diner was always a must do for us, and we have sorely missed it since closing. We were thrilled to finally find Harbaugh's this trip. The entire family was beyond happy with their choices - from the biscuits and gravy that truly taste home made... More
