Popped in for light lunch, egg mayo and bacon sarnis on granary bread with side salad, BLT with fries for hubby. Excellent, real bread, quality salad and coffee shop style drinks. Good value for money.

If you want a traditional English breakfast in Chichester, this is the place to go. Slightly more expensive than the mass market chains, it is excellent value for money. A chef who knows how to cook fried bread is a rarity; that the fried eggs were perfect and the back bacon full of flavour added to the experience and properly... More

I visited Charlie Harper's for the first time yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It is a large cafe which caters for most tastes. The choice of drinks and food is quite expansive. I had a pot of tea and bacon sandwich, both of which, I could not fault. The food being served to other customers was plentiful and looked delicious.... More

If you're in Chichester and fancy a well cooked breakfast lunch or dinner then this is worth a visit. It's only small but the food is good and I would definitely recommend going for breakfast before you hit the shops. The menu is varied and all food is cooked to order. The prices are reasonable and the staff attentive but... More

I've been to Charlie harpers a handful of times and to be honest this place used to be a first choice but due to uninterested, poorly managed staff and the decrease in quality of food I won't be returning. All the breakfast taste and looks like it's been tossed in a deep fat fryer and the menu is outdated and... More
