I had the Irish omelet. Fluffiness omelet I've ever had. The corned beef hash was also really tasty. Would definitely go back!

I could only give this 4 stars, because although the omelet was indeed the fluffiest, most perfect omelet we had ever tasted, the rest of the breakfast was not so great. The oatmeal was inedible, as were the bananas in the fresh fruit side dish. The biscuit was a little too doughy. The grits were ok, but nothing special. We... More

OK. So I found this on TripAdvisor and the guy said it was the best breakfast in America. No way I thought. Good, maybe. Terrific, possibly. But, no, now way the best. Hmmmmm. Well, it really might be the best. We found it with the GPS and it is REALLY funky. There is great free parking right on the street... More

On Granby Street lies a little place called Charlie'c Cafe. We had breakfast there and it was delicious. It is small, maybe 10 tables, but the menu is great, service is good and the food is delicious. Their breakfast menu has so many omelets that it is difficult to decide which one you want. I would love to get back... More

Arguably one of the best breakfasts in the country. My first encounter was back in 03 after moving to the Ghent District of Norfolk down on the corner of Princess Anne and Granby. During a recent trip back to Norfolk, I decided to break from my usual Mom's Omelet -- which I've long called among the best omelets ever, anywhere... More

Great little place for breakfast. This is not a gourmet restaurant, so breakfasts are the thing. Outside of breakfast, who knows what you might find? Eggs are delish, not greasy. Hash browns are also not too greasy. Pancakes and waffles are tops. Jason, the waiter, is top drawer, and the waitresses are mostly very nice. Go for it! I go... More

Best omelet I have ever had, great chunky salsa on top. The homefries were creamy and the biscuits were good. My friend had a burger and coleslaw, and the coleslaw was purple colored which was weird but she said it tasted good. The waitress kind of sucked, inattentive and didn't tell us about any specials or offer donuts. The food... More

Looked forward to having breakfast outside, and having a cocktail with it, but the server that was supposed to set up the tables was late, and the staff said we Had to eat inside, and that their liquor license wouldn't let them serve booze before noon (not their fault, that's fine...) but we sat at the counter, and even though...
