Any local who knows and loves breakfast (or lunch for that matter), has
Harpoon Harry's up on the list of favorites.
Excellent diner with some of the friendliest staff around. The basics done proud.
After lunch, the casual and friendly atmosphere continues as the liquor store and bar continue serving until the cows come home.
UNSOLICITED CUSTOMER REVIEW
I had breakfast at Harpoon Harry's on Christmas Eve morning. Key West was the first stop on a family cruise I was taking. I rented a two-seater electic car with my sister (aka Sister Breakfast) and headed out in search of the best breakfast on the island.
And I found it!
I had the Spicy Western Omelette and she had the Crunchy French Toast. The service was excellent. Our waitress was extremely friendly and timely. The red peppers in my Omelette gave it the perfect amount of spark. I tried the French Toast and was also impressed.
Make sure you try their potatoes and make a point to ask about strange collection of Barbie Dolls you'll see as you enter.
Thumbs up to Harpoon Harry's -- a contender for the best breakfast I've had all year.
