When my wife and I go out for breakfast we appreciate good food and friendly service, and that's what we got here. Be prepared to wait a bit. There is not an abundance of space and the place is pretty popular. We didn't mind the wait though; we enjoy the chance to chat. Food was GREAT and even though they seemed a little rushed, the service was efficient and personable. Cool atmosphere and generous portions.

Breakfast time is crowded but the food is spot on diner fare. Good hashbrowns. The tuna melt with grilled bread for lunch is yummy

The food is modestly priced and large portions. There are long waits at times because it is popular with the locals. You have to be in the mood for cramped tables and the hustle and bustle but it is a Norfolk experience that only the locals know about. It has changed management/ownership a few times and this place greatly reflects the management because it is so intimate. Many of the customers know the wait staff and owner by name. Don't expect fancy cuisine but good solid food featuring breakfast foods.

Charlies Cafe was a delightful, delicious dining experience!! The Mimosas come in a Mason Jar, and the omelets are stuffed with goodies and are 3 inches high! The chicken fried steak w/ sausage gravy on biscuits pure heaven! Charlie's owner, Ted Warren, believes in buying American whenever possible, and is delivering great food and fun up to Norfolk folks in down-home, comfortable style!

I had heard the name but never new it was so close to my gym. Had an amazing asparagus and feta omelet and my brother had a full right on platter with hash and a biscuit. Mimosa by the quart..... I love weekends and diner food....
