“Perfect place for lunch”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Spectacular sandwiches: we had a "Richard Dreyfuss" (pastrami) and a "Zonker Harris" (tomato, avocado, cheese). Very busy place right around the corner from campus. Just what we were looking for after a trip to the college art museum.

“Great Location and Famous Food”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stopped in for breakfast and admired this local deli. My wife had an excellent omlette. I had a breakfast sandwich. There is no bathroom in the restaurant, and the one I was directed to was locked on a Sunday morning. The owner seemed very nice.

“An on-going tradition.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Pappa Charlie's has been through many owners, but the recipes and quality has happily been maintained in this unique deli and breakfast place. Check out the wall of fame with sandwiches named, created and inspired by many celebrities who have appeared at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, from the late Christopher Reeve to Blythe Danner and her, daughter,
Gwyneth Paltrow. While the Austin Pendleton and Peter Hunt are great, my personal favorite is the Sluggo (not named for a celeb). Turkey, celery salt and muenster - hot - get it on a hard roll with a little Russian Dressing! The vegetarian chilli is excellent and they may have the best veggie omelet in town -- and at a very reasonable price!

“Good food but you better get it to go”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

The place is just to popular with very minimal seating. It was a long wait to place the order, a long wait to get the food, and (because it was cold out) there was no place to sit and eat the food.

“Good sandwiches, bad prices.”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Slightly overpriced, but the sandwiches are good. Go a little early or a little late for lunch. The staff is not very efficient during rush time.
