Had a great Sunday morning brunch. Scrambled egg and bacon on doorstep slices of toast. The biggest pieces of toast I've ever had with real butter. When we asked for jam for the toast, no scrimping on portion size here and the taste was good. Even the large tea pot was topped up again. It worked out at great value... More

Have just enjoyed coffee and cake whilst sheltering from a rain shower. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the selection of cakes is beautifully presented. Will definitely return. :-)

We had friends visiting and went for a walk in Charlestown. We decided we wanted a coffee so popped into Charlies. What a lovely surprise. The decor and layout is great although it's small inside but quaint. We had not long ago had breakfast but could not resist having a cake with our drinks. Fabulous arrays of home baked. Staff...

Just had a light lunch of Pannini and Salad here but it was all freshly prepared and it tasted good. Most enjoyable and the atmosphere/service was good too

This is a very friendly and quaint little cafe serving delicious panini, cream teas, etc. It's 5 minute walk from my home so will definitely be revisiting.

Gorgeous little cafe BUT disappointing food and service. Presented with a menu and sat down. 5 men came in 2 minutes after us and were served first - causing us to wait a lot longer for food and drink than we had wished. Very poor considering the place had only 5 tables !?!? Coffee - weak Breakfast panini - one... More
