I was in Charleston, West Virginia, with my best friend as she was taking care of personal business downtown and we wanted a quick bite to eat for lunch. When we asked for recommendations about a place close by to eat, someone mentioned this café....More

Had lunch here with the wife. You order at the window and wait for your number to be called. The food was served promptly. The sandwiches were very good and the potato salad was excellent. Prices were average, but certainly not cheap. Would eat here...More

The grilled breakfast burrito is awesome! As well as the Cajun turkey wrap. But you can't go wrong with any item. Great place, prices, and service!

Excellent Food, quaint atmosphere and quick service! Lots of choices on the menu. Closes at 2pm is the only downside. Great stop off the interstate - located downtown. Easy to get to.

I use them for catering breakfast and lunch for our staff meeting. The food is wonderful, always fresh. I have spoke to the owner on several occasions and he is always willing to accommodate my requests. I would give them an A+ rating.

Short stay in town, great food and fabulous service. A great find in the capital city. We a Breakfast Burrito and Home Fries. Both were delicious. The portions were more than generous. Priced for the poor man. We will definitely revisit when back in town.
