We love this little restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Great service and food. I've had the Reuben sandwich, taco salad, eggs Benedict and more. I've gone a few times with friends and often with my husband. It is so much better than chains like Panera.

Portions are large. Warm charming atmosphere and very relaxing. We enjoyed looking at the art work from local artists on the walls and a small... More

Charlie makes the Best Chili anywhere and great chicken salad sliders! everything's fresh, delicious and very nutritious. Breakfast served all day - - don't think their coffee is good it's usually cold no matter when i've tried it, so hopefully they'll read this and make a fine fresh hot french roast and really get my devotion! the food is always...

My boyfriend, two other people, and I went to Charlie's for breakfast on a Saturday. We were visiting from another state, and this place was recommended to us. I loved it! The tables are cute, there was no wait, the service was great, and the food was excellent (my French toast was awesome). Art is for sale there too, and... More

Party of four recently went and we mixed it up with breakfast and lunch. Service was great and the food was delicious. I had a ham club sandwich and fries and it was very good and filling. My party enjoyed the atmosphere and the local artwork on display was a nice bonus. I grabbed a couple cards and hopefully will... More

Been here a number of times and always great. Charming and quaint with local art much of it done by Pat who along with her husband Charlie own/run this place. Food is terrific - we love the apple/sausage/cheese and onion omelet but other items we have tried have been good as well. Prices are reasonable too. This time Anastasia was... More

I've been going to Charlie's for years now. Charlie is the chef and he's terrific! Pat is his wife and she usually runs the front of the house, with the help of Joe (he's so nice!), her sister, Lee, and Lee's friend, Stacy. I love Charlie's food - great selection and quality. This has been my Thanksgiving dinner place for... More

We have been here several times and it never disappoints. Breakfast is great. Omelets and homefries are always perfect and the portions are large. Pancakes are very good as well.
