We have a monthly staff breakfast here. It's always very good and the coffee cups are kept full. We've never noticed any abnormal wait time but we are not in any hurry anyway. I always get a custom omelette and it's awesome!

Have been going to restaurants at this location for many years. The waitstaff is great and spills over from owner to owner. They have recently expanded and have 6 more tables in the back. However, this is not really good news. When you walk into a place and see many tables with no food--everyone is waiting--you should duck out and... More

Very high quality breakfast food. Fast service. Baked beans and French toast especially good. My breakfast sandwich was the best one I've had in a restaurant. Will definitely return.

A friend was visiting and I did a search for a diner near me and this popped up. I read some reviews and thought that this sounded like the perfect place. It's a little out of the way but it was quaint and cozy inside. The place was packed and we lucked out with a table. Here's where the problems... More

We were looking for a local diner midway through a road trip and this was perfect. Nice filling sandwiches with friendly service in a quaint setting. Definitely worth a stop.

In the course of visits to relatives in ME, we’ve often stopped at Charlie’s, in Westbrook, for breakfast or lunch. The food’s reliably good. The breakfast offerings are somewhat more ambitious, with interesting omelets and items like stuffed French toast (one of us especially liked a cream cheese and pineapple creation). The lunch menu offers mainly standard sandwiches; other offerings... More

We visited the diner this morning after seeing a post about it on facebook, and saw a video of them making the breakfast bowl a couple of weeks ago. when we got there the parking lot had several cars. So being such a small diner and my hubby being in a wheelchair I went in to make sure there was... More

Two of us ate breakfast there, using a restaurant.com coupon. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We both ordered the hash benedict, which was perfectly cooked. We took half of one order home, as it was a LOT of food. We also got orange juice and coffee. The coffee was a bit tepid, but I'm sure the staff would have... More

Great little breakfast joint. Everything made from scratch. The Breakfast Bowls' are individual breakfast casseroles and are ridiculously YUMMY. Dozens of filling options - I recommend any combo as long as it includes the baby spinach. I had spinach, garlic & bacon.
