A place that I (Michelle) have been going to for a long time is Harry’s Restaurant in Westborough, MA. My sister and our friends were regulars here when we were in college. We’d stay until closing at 1:00 a.m. drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. Now I can’t have coffee past noon, don’t smoke, and I’m asleep by 9:00 p.m. (or earlier), but I brought Ethan here a few years ago and he liked it, so we visit a few times a year.

The interior is made up of mostly booths, stool seating at the oddly low counter, and a few two-chair tables.

Harry’s is about 50 years old. They specialize in diner food (obvi) and serve breakfast all day. One thing I like especially about Harry’s is it’s one of the few places in Mass that serves egg creams. I always get a chocolate egg cream and they’re consistently good.

On our most recent visit Ethan got one of the Harry’s signature dishes, the Zippy Burger (fried salami, melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion on toast).

I got fish bites, that is, small cuts of fresh haddock as fish & chips for which I subbed sweet potato fries in place of regular fries.

I haven’t had a frappe here in a while but they’re great. One could/should be a meal in itself. Ethan got a strawberry frappe that had a nice chunk of real strawberry, so big it clogged the straw!

We can easily recommend Harry’s for the food and service. I do feel bad for the guys since the men’s room is only accessible from the outside, but other than that, it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.
