Good Local Breakfast Diner

Stopped in for a late breakfast on a Sunday morning. Had to wait a bit but we did have a party of 9 so it was expected. Nice local diner feel. We all had breakfast dishes and they were all good, but they also serve all types of meals. One of our group was a regular and said the food... read more

Charlie's Diner has been a local eatery ever since I was a kid and even though ownership has changed over the years, the food and service has not. The addition to eating out front on the porch during the warmer months is a bonus.

Great food, excellent service, a great place for family and friends to gather and eat with excellent prices and the noise level is good so you can sit and converse with one another.

Menu offers every favorite American breakfast you've ever had; pancakes, waffels eggs anyway you want them, my favorite here; corned-beef hash with an egg on it and much more. If you want real Maple Syrup you must bring... More

We had breakfast here two mornings. The first day we waited 35 minutes to receive our meals. The only reason we went back again was for the food...still slow service but we had more time to relax. The home made cinnamon French toast is delicious. If you have the time it's a nice alternative from eating at the Roycroft or... More

You can tell a great restaurant by the number of cars around it. Great me with a pot of coffee and all is well. Waffles were hot and tasty. Staff on their game.

My boyfriend and I love diners and were looking for a great diner breakfast. We loved the homemade cinnamon bread and I had the Italian super omelet, which was hands down the best omelet I have ever had! We would definitely go back.
