We enjoyed a great lunch with friends outside. The service was quick and the food was delicious. I would recommend the mocha frappe and loaded nachos.

It's not that Charlotte's sits as a town cottage. Rather it's quaint rooms and atmosphere create an ambiance of relaxed and leisurely dining. Our breakfast stop while traveling, Charlotte's street view reflects past genteel living. The side door enters to the ordering counter with a substantial chalkboard menu. Orders are delivered to your table in one of a few dining... More

The best thing about Charlotte's is outside dining ; spring summer and fall. the food is yummy and having a picnic without doing the cooking yourself is the best. This is not diet food. Do not think you will get skinny;; you will not. Just enjoy and then work-out. What annoys me is the extra charge for coffee refills. I... More

Soup and sandwiches and salads and yummy desserts. Perhaps a little pricey, but at least it's not fast food. Each room of Victorian style house has several tables. Favorite area is enclosed porch. Summer outdoor dining. The antique shop next door is fun if you have time after lunch

Visiting the VA Medical Center with my father and was looking for something besides fast food. Read reviews and was excited to visit. You park on the street and enter through the side. The menu is hand written on several chalk boards. Ordered two halves of Italian beef and a bowl of broccoli cheddar. Removed two tap waters when we... More

Very nice- Seven of us from work came for lunch. The food is made once you order. Nothing is made a ahead of time except for the soups. We grabbed a table outside under a shade tree. We drank our ice tea while we waited. The outside is charming and the company was nice, so although we waited for seven... More

The setting is an old home. Sparsely decorated but sweet. Probably more to a woman's liking as it was busy with locals but my husband was the only man. The food was quite good. Limited menu of soups and sandwiches.

This is primarily a lunch crowd place, but the food is all homemade, and tastes good. There are daily specials, as well as lunch items. The Italian Beef, the Ham Salad, and the desserts are standout items!

Thank Karen M
