“The Best Cinnamon Roll Ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

My husband eats one of Charlie's cinnamon rolls every Sunday. He likes the plain one but they do make it with nuts and raisins also. You cannot stop eating the chocolate chip oatmeal cookies...they are dangerous. It's a small place with a few places to sit outside the entrance which is in a little shopping center next to CVS & Vons. They also have hard rolls which are great for sandwiches. You can also taste a large selection of their products & they sell coffee dispensed from a carafe. Prices are reasonable and staff is very friendly. Everything is baked on the premises...it smells delicious! Come early. They sometimes sell out of the cinnamon rolls by late afternoon.

“Every bite was delicious and the service very attentive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

My husband and I used a Groupon for this restaurant and we are so glad to discover it. We had the turkey sandwich in Squaw bread with pear slices and bacon. Oh my gosh...incredible and the salmon tacos were huge and a touch spicy...so good. Service was very good and lots of fun breads to buy form the bakery to take home. I looked around at the other diners and their salads were huge and beautiful Will definitely return.

“Great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Neighborhood venue that transcends its location. We had the pear & gorgonzola salad followed by orders of both the salmon and ahi tuna tacos- all were served quickly, with smiles and had ample food. We topped it off with a chocolate eclair.
Yummmmm.
