good dive!

menu is typical for a small town diner, but the food is solid. Bathrooms are an experience, but the food is worth it. cheap and good.

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 friend and I meet... 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.

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.

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.
