A Vision of Everlasting Simplicity at Harmon's Lunch, Saturday at Noon

Welcome to a Burger Week edition of Eater Scenes, where photographers visit notable spots to capture them at a certain point in the day.

Not much changes at Harmon's Lunch in Falmouth. Since Eater spoke to owner Peter Wormell two years ago, the price of a cheeseburger has crept up .25 cents (to a whopping $2.75). Batter dipped onion rings are available in half or full size portions. Minor tweaks, indeed, yet significant to a 55 year old business built on simplicity.

For a special Burger Week edition of Eater Scenes, photographer Corey Templeton scoped out the shop. There was a 20 minute wait at noon on a Saturday as Wormell himself flipped burger patties on the flattop. Minor updates aside, the appeal remains the same as it did when Marvin Harmon founded Harmon's Lunch in 1960, or when Wormell purchased the business two decades ago: simple foods at low prices. Some things never change.
