Just love everything about this place from the food to the atmosphere! Love that the tables and chairs don't match or the glasses and coffee mugs! Not had a bad meal yet and the staff is very friendly!

Love this place. Great menu, food, and coffee. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could. Ranch potatoes are delicious and the gravy is some of the best I've ever had at a diner. A must for breakfast in Carbondale.

Carbondale is blessed with some great breakfast places and this is top 2!! Skillets are amazing, you get a ton of food for the price and there are a bunch of healthy options as well. Service and ownership make it a special place to go....More

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....More
