I dragged my husband here for breakfast one morning during our trip because I'm called Charlotte! We went inside and it was full but after some looking around we realised there is a basement floor. I loved the look of the place, the basement had all the freshly baked breads and ovens and a lovely wall with cabinets full of... More

Visited this place last week with three Italian friends - they said Charlotte has the best coffee outside of Italy. It has indeed. Apart from that they offer delicious breakfasts and a great selection of cakes & cookies. Totally recommended!

Bread and jam are homemade and delicious. The service is not worth mentioning. Coffee is quite ok. Fresh orange juice helps you over your hangover.

Awesome fresh bakery and sandwiches. Great place for coffee breaks or business meeting. Nice serving. The only thing I didn't like is amount of oil in my salad- was impossible to finish it.

Had a quick lunch here. Pleasant enough, nice staff, bright, cheap and cheerful. We sat downstairs, which seemed more "functional" than the ground floor level. No frills. Did the trick! One slight issue - no toilet paper in the Ladies (or was it unisex??) toilet!
