Having breakfast at Charlie's Diner was the second time we ate there and enjoyed this meal as much as we enjoyed our previous dinner meal! The Eggs Benedict was delicious and a refill of our coffee was offered throughout the meal; which is always a good thing early in the morning! It was crowded with a loud hum of voices... More

Me and my husband always enjoy breakfast at Charlie's Diner. I had the malted waffle with blueberries and whipped cream. Very light and tasty. My husband had the homemade cinnamon bread French toast. Out of this world. Will definitely return to try something else. And they have good coffee!

Went on an off time, one server, service was slow, food was average. It was as if they cater to the weekend breakfast crowd, maybe there is too much competition in town

A wait for breakfast, the hostess didn't do a good job writing names down, calling people out of order. When finally seated, the waitress took our order, I am not sure if she lost it, but the kitchen took a long time to cook food, Food was fine, I'm not sure if I would go back

It was really dead the day my friend and I happened upon this little place. It's got the "diner" feel to it and the food and service were excellent. Park in the back walk around to the front, I think. I remember the parking being a little weird.

I just left Charlie's Diner after stopping in while passing through town. The food was outstanding and the service was also very good. It is definitely worth a stop and I will definitely return When passing through town.

We went for breakfast and the food was fine. The server did not seem to know about Gluten Free options or special diets which was a little dissapointing. We can generally determine what is safe, but if the restaurant doesn't know the tend to add toast or croutons to things. Aside from that there was not much to write about.... More
