We were in town for the weekend. Wanted to find local places. This one was hopping with business on a Sunday morning. An eclectic place. Food was mostly good. Service was good. And they DO take cards now. Would recommends to try for breakfast

It seems as though the Eggs Benedict call to me on occasion. Harbaugh's is the perfect late morning college town breakfast destination. I have no clue how early they open, but their day ends at 2 p.m. The cook manages to include quite a bit...More
