Norfolk >Charlie's Cafe
Friendly service. Great value.. Omelettes are the lightest I've eaten. Home fries are done on the gill without all the grease of deep frying. Highly recommend a counter seat. NO PRETENCE! Nearby IHOP can't compete for friendly service and coziness.
A classic lunch counter. I love Charlie's for breakfast on Sundays! Bring a few friends, order that classic eggs and bacon with toast, or anything else. It comes out the American way. Read the paper, talk about the weather; enjoy the food. The atmosphere looks unprepossessing, but so much better (once you get in) than some soulless chain; give it a try!
Grab a coveted counter seat and mentally prepare for one of Norfolk's best omelettes at this daytime dive..
The sign outside this hole-in-the-wall breakfast and lunch spot reads, "Swanky Franky Famous Hot Dogs." But for longer than most can remember, it's been Charlie's Cafe. Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis, with weekend breakfasts remaining the hardest time to grab one of the 40 seats.
Breakfast specials include platters of eggs, pancakes and French toast, but the milkshake machine-whipped omelettes are what draw the masses. Airy biscuits and creamy grits dutifully remind customers they're at a Southern eatery. Seasoned chicken strips, onions, tomatoes and Monterey Jack cheese stuff the fajita omelette that's smothered in salsa. Sandwiches, burgers and meat loaf are lunchtime mainstays. Down-home specialties like chicken and dumplings and pot roast are served with sides of mashed potatoes, collard greens or black-eyed peas.
Awesome!!. I've been to Charlies several times and have thoroughly enjoyed it every visit. Down home food in a very casual atmosphere. Cooooool!
good southern cooking. Pull up a high stool at the counter and eat the best breakfast in town.
