Had a great Sunday morning brunch. Scrambled egg and bacon on doorstep slices of toast. The biggest pieces of toast I've ever had with real butter.

Have just enjoyed coffee and cake whilst sheltering from a rain shower. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the selection of cakes is beautifully presented. Will definitely return. :-)

We had friends visiting and went for a walk in Charlestown. We decided we wanted a coffee so popped into Charlies. What a lovely surprise. The decor and layout is great although it's small inside but quaint. We had not long ago had breakfast but could not resist having a cake with our drinks. Fabulous arrays of home baked. Staff...
