“Quaint Old Breakfast, (Lunch) Shop with Excellent food and Omlets in Ghent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2010

i had a Wonderful Omelette that was monstrous, it was light and airy and they used a blender to really mix the egg. The ingredients were very fresh, and tasty. I had Mushrooms in it also that were particularly tasteful. The Coffee was non stop, and the waitress was so nice too.
I had Grits and toast, but could have had fresh cut potato also. All ages of persons were there chatting and enjoying the day, I'm glad I found this restaurant. I found the place at their Web Page on line and will go back again soon.

Here was the site I found them at, http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=en&biw=1264&bih=847&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=charlies+breakfast+shop+norfolk&fb=1&gl=us&hq=charlies+breakfast+shop&hnear=Norfolk,+VA&cid=2041098468467687300

“Busy - really good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2010

Even though it was around lunch (noonish), the waitress said most people come there for the omelets. I was glad she gave me this advice - the omelet was very, very good. I do believe two people could split one breakfast omelet with the sides. Fun atmosphere, very casual, nice service. An enjoyable visit and meal.

“Charlie's has reopened under new ownership.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2010

The tiny cafe which is a local favorite for breakfastis open again cleaner, neater, and with much the same menu, The huge, delicious omelets that made the place a local breakfast first choice are still being offered along with the skillet breakfast, pancakes, everything. Lunch is being served and in the autumn they expect to open for dinner. They have even managed to add a few sidewalk tables. This restaurant has been located in this 100 year old confectionary shop for many years and the neighbors are delighted it is back.
