Stopped in for what turned out to be an amazing home-cooked breakfast on a trip to MSP. The service was unbelievably fast and I will definately be stopping on future trips.

A group of golfers stopped for Breakfast before a golf tournament. Eight of us were seated right away. The waitress was at the table right away. We all ordered and the food was there quickly. The eggs were cooked perfect and every thing was very good.

We were pleased with the variety, quality and speedy service at Charlie's Cafe after church.

picked up some caramel rolls on the way thru town. They were terrific. Fresh, warm, soft, well covered. Did eat off the menu this trip but it looked good and was very busy. Will come back to try the menu for sure.

Late-morning breakfast time and so glad we pulled off the highway and found Charlie's Care. It's everything a small-town diner should be, with friendly, happy manager, servers and cooks working to keep the crowd of diners happy and well-fed. Great coffee, too. Get there!

Charlie's Cafe is a local longstanding classic cafe. Charlie's breakfast food is tough to beat. The atmosphere and service is reflective of the small town which it resides, fantastic. The options are plenty, however no eggs Benedict. I had the basic 2 eggs, toast, bacon, and hash browns super nummy. My wife had the skillet and loved it. My 6... More
