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.

Decided to try Charlie's Diner after a few disappointing visits to our regular favorite North Windham brunch restaurant. So glad we did! Looks like a small non-descript restaurant that one might simply pass by. DON'T! Give it a try. We were greeted immediately, with coffee and a smile. The omelet was fluffy, ingredients fresh, bacon cooked perfectly. The food came... More

I've been here many times for breakfast and dinner. They have a few different dishes but for the most part they have typical diner food. The food is fairly priced for what you get. The wait staff is attentive to their customers. Go there for a quick meal and you'll be happy you did.

We had breakfast at Charlie's this morning and it was our first time eating there. The waiter was really nice and the food was fantastic! I had the veggie benedict and it was perfect, with nicely diced veggies, perfectly cooked eggs and a very good hollandaise. My wife had the cinnamon roll pancakes, after the waiter suggested them. They were... More
