Good food.....could be cleaner.

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.

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

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

Stopped for a late lunch on the way to Vidler's. It was warm and comforable. Our waitress was friendly and courteous and did not "hover." We both had the grilled chicken sandwich which was fresh abd tasty. We will be going back.

Home made breads, toasted, served with fresh eggs, bacon or sausage....endless coffee, friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just plain good food and service.

I live not far from Charlie's, so it's a common meeting place for casual meals with friends, neighbors, family. Service is great, food it excellent, staff attentive. They do get very busy, esp. on Sunday mornings, so be prepared to wait a little bit for a table. Outside dining is great as well.
