Had a Chicken Caesar sandwich with pasta salad. Not only was the presentation ridiculous (see picture) but it tasted horrible. Took two bites (had to use a knife and fork), paid the bill and left. The service was also pretty poor. Barrista stood with his elbows on the counter, eyes glued to his iPhone. The waitress was adequate, but said... More

I love their sandwiches and have never had a bad one. I have never been there for breakfast so I can't comment on that.

After doing some early morning errands and shopping before the holidays, a friend of mine and I decided to do lunch. We were in Kenai and I had suggested we go to Charlottes for a sandwich and a coffee to warm up. It was a Saturday about 2 o'clock and freezing snow and wind outside. Greeted immediately by a voice... More

With the cool rainy day, it was a good time for sandwich and soup. Both were very good. The menu has many nice selections, and for the life of me, I can't remember what I had! I do remember the cup of soup was excellent. Its a popular place with the locals and we understand why: very good food, service... More

If you are visiting Kenai and looking for a good breakfast or lunch option Charlotte's would be my recommendation. They're open M- Sat and offer healthy, fresh options. Probably one of the most popular choices for lunch is the seafood salad. The smaller version is actually fairly large and is a tasty, fresh, light choice. They also have great coffee... More

We were exploring Kenai on our trip from Homer back to Anchorage for our flight home. Based on TripAdvisor reviews we selected Charlotte's for a late lunch. Good menu, good food and good atmosphere in a beautiful location. Would definitely return if I was ever in the area again.

Charlotte, as she told me, felt she needed to concentrate on her catering business, so she sold it. She would make the best salad (and I am not a fan of salads) with fresh apples, pears, white Stilton with apple and pear with a most wonderful pear vineagrette I've ever tasted... These new folk think that canned pears is okay.... More

My friend and I stopped in for a leisurely brunch. They were just switching over from breakfast to lunch but drink service was very prompt while we decided on our lunch. I had a fantastic Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich. He enjoyed his sandwich as well. Nice menu. Something for everyone. I had to buy a couple giant Peanut Butter cookies to... More

Had a business lunch at Charlotte's and they were most helpful when 8 of us came in - they rapidly moved 2 tables together and seated us immediately. Food was fast, quality, and tasty. Next time in Kenai and on biz will return
