Perfect low key breakfast

Charlie's has a diverse menu and is a family friendly and low key atmosphere for all ages. With indoor and outdoor seating there is opportunity to enjoy the picturesque view of East Aurora as well.

A popular breakfast location. Food is good; however, on football Sundays, the restaurant is understandably crowded with waiting lists for seats. Would be able to select this restaurant more often if the timing for being served were quicker.

We ate breakfast there and it was great. Nice sitting on the porch. The homemade toast was amazing. The staff was friendly and there with re-fills of coffee.

I think we arrived there after the lunch rush on a Saturday afternoon. It was a bit messy. However, the food was really great and the staff was so nice and helpful. Service was fast. The prices were very reasonable as well.

We LOVE Charlie's!! This is always on our list of restaurant 'musts' when we visit East Aurora. It's a typical diner, full of locals and local waitress' who treat everyone like they are family. Food is good, just enough to get you full so you leave satisfied. Their bread is homemade and the cinnamon bread is AH-MAZING!!! When the weather... More

We got married earlier in the day at Niagara Falls and were very tired and starving by the time we were headed back to our B&B in the evening. Decided to stop at Charlie's to grab dinner as we had always seen a good crowd on the screen porch and had been wanting to try it. Didn't realize it was... More

This casual restaurant is just a few blocks from the Roycroft Inn and offers a great, economical alternative for breakfast and lunch. We had breakfast there several days. Although busy, service was always prompt and courteous. Food portions were generous and a nice selection of egg alternatives with the standard ala carte fare of oatmeal, cereal, pastries were included on... More
