Best Bacon in town!

This little café/dinner is on Main Street in Minot. It was refurbished by the new owners about 3 years ago and is friendly and clean. The staff is pleasant and happy to serve your needs. They always have a couple of breakfast specials and leave a pot of coffee on your table for your enjoyment. My... read more

We had a delicious lunch, though some ordered breakfast after lunch time. Good service, but read the menu carefully as not all items are included in the cost of the meal. Toast is extra when ordering an omelette. The chicken strips are tasty, crunchy and hot. Tons of great french fries. The turkey dinner was very good, though the mashed... More

Had lunch there. The place was packed. The food was tasty, prices good. The waitresses were friendly, attentive and moved quickly, helping each other out as needed. The kitchen was puttingout food at an unbeliveable rate adn every plate looked very good. A definite place to return to. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food.

We stopped in here on a Saturday for Brunch so the breakfast rush was finishing up and there were plenty of seats. The servers were nice but it took 5 minutes to even get a menu and order coffee, another 15 to order and then about 40 minutes to get our food. It wasn't that busy for the kitchen to... More

This is my go-to breakfast and brunch spot in Minot. Adorable, cuddled back into historic downtown. Amazing food and BIG portions for what you order. I highly recommend this place!

This has been a local main street café for generations. Good honest café food. New ownership has updated the inside and cleaned up a lot. Give it a try. The waitresses at Charlie's provide great service.

A little pricy but worth it. Really good home cooked food with generous portions. The service is also good and the newly renovated cafe has a nice atmosphere. The only down side, having to go down stairs to a less than pleasant bathroom.

Charlies is an old name and location in Minot. Charles Demakis opened it in the 1950s and it has gone through several owners and personalities over the years. This transformation is my favorite after the first edition. It is located on Main Street and is a perfect place for lunch. The new owners came to Minot from Korea to run... More

I was in the mood for a good diner type place and I found it. The service is great, food is great, and the coffee keeps coming! Of all the places I ate in Minot, this was my favorite.
