I had been a customer since Charlie Ellison was the owner with his mother Gladys. I am still working to keep Charlie's a local independent favorite. We appreciate our customers that continue to support us and help keep a Norfolk institution going strong.

Absolutely a classic throw back to the 1940's. This is the kinda place your great grandmother and great grandfather went when they wanted a great breakfast. The food is good, the conversation is great when you sit at the counter seats. This place has timeless character.

I've been here a few times for breakfast. The omletes are outstanding. My date ordered one that had (get this) avocado in it! Unexpected for a "greasy spoon." Avoid the fried "pork roll" slice -- mine was tough as shoe leather, and tasted like it'd been rolled in salt. The eggs and 'taters were great.

A classic comfort food restaurant. Best omlettes in the area. Decor is rustic and some might say dirty, but the food is wonderful, cheap and service is friendly and quick. The cliental is eclectic, the Mayor, doctors, lawyers, retirees and those less fortunate all come for the wonderful food and friendly atmosphere.

Grab a coveted counter seat and mentally prepare for one of Norfolk's best omelettes at this daytime dive.:
The Scene
The sign outside this hole-in-the-wall breakfast and lunch spot reads, ""Swanky Franky Famous Hot Dogs."" But for longer than most can remember, it's been Charlie's Cafe....
