Come for the food

So, it's not the greatest thing to look at, inside or out, but the food is delicious. They serve the fluffiest eggs I have ever had. I had it stuffed with corn beef hash and it was delicious. And a huge portion! My friends come here often and are never disappointed. Food came out fast and... read more

In town visiting family. Stopped here for brunch - some had sandwiches, some breakfast. Best omelettes I've ever had - fluffy, large and tasty! Will be back when back in town.

Went there for lunch. They were out of ground beef so they could not serve any hamburgers. sandwich menu was also limited since I ran out of turkey. So we all decided to have breakfast. Omelets were good.

Charlie's Café is one of those hidden gems in Norfolk. Located on Granby Street outside of the downtown area, it is the perfect location for a breakfast meeting. The food is substantial and tastes great (especially the home fried potatoes) and the service is spot on the mark. I highly recommend putting this one on your list of must visit... More

We ordered breakfast in the afternoon and it was very good. There was plenty of friendly service. It didn't take long to receive our order. We ate inside but it looks like they offer outdoor seating. The only drawback was the warm temp inside- but we were sitting close to the kitchen.

I ordered a speciality omelet and it was fantastic! How do they get it so fluffy? The menu has a lot of options and varieties. I'll definitely be back.

Southwest Omelet, grits, coffee and OJ was wonderful. The cook said today was his first day cooking. He was right there to check on customers, however the waitress was not attentive. Thankfull I was sitting at the counter and not a table. I may have been forgotten. A manager was at the pay station next to me. The cook voiced... More

We arrived by boat at the Waterside Marina, Norfolk. We wanted a place to walk to a good old fashioned breakfast. We found it! Quaint, local, extremely friendly and great food. It is about 1.5 miles from the marina, so good exercise, as well.
