Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

warm welcome when you walk into the Cafe - very friendly and quite clean as well when you consider that some of the cafe is outside.... food was very quick when i ordered it and very hot/fresh (or seemed fresh lol). Very happy and would recommend to anyone in a heart beat.

We had a lovely breakfast here last weekend. The waitress apologised that there was a slight delay on food which didn’t bother us and it was good to be told in advance. Breakfast was great and the service was with a bit of banter which always makes for a better experience!

During our cycle ride we stopped at Charlie Harpers for our breakfast. We sat outside and a waitress arrived pretty quick and took our drinks ordered and advised of a 25 minutes wait for food. When she arrived with the drinks we ordered 2 All Day Breakfasts. The food arrived sooner than advised and was very good. All in all, a good place to have breakfast.

It was okay. The service was fantastic the staff are super friendly. The food not great, maybe it was our choices. I had the halloumi sandwich it was overdone and somehow didn’t taste like halloumi. Bread was lovely - granary really soft. It also came with chips which tasted like they were cooked in old oil. Coffee was really good apparently.

Not a promising location with an inside table due to rain, but it was our best meal all holiday. Breakfast. I had porridge with banana and honey, it was a large portion, DH had eggs benedict DD avo on toast and DS bacon bap. Coffee was sensational. It would have been pricey but we got it half price on the EAT OUT TO HELP OUT. Fabulous. We didn’t eat again until dinner time.

I would not hurry to return to this locale. We waited an hour for our food - it was Christmas Eve so we expected the place to be busy but neither of us had complicated orders. I chose goat's cheese bruschetta - it was tasty and quality was good, but £9.95 for one half of a panino with a topping and a bit of salad seemed excessive. Our desserts both came with choice of custard or ice cream, but there was no custard available - not difficult to rub it off the blackboard or to be told when ordering? The fruit in my crumble was nice but the crumble itself was like stale, broken biscuits just strewn on top and was almost inedible.

I had been in Chichester looking for a shop that has now closed. So I thought a bit of lunch would be nice. Not knowing where to go, I first tried a pizza Express on a corner of the road, I had waited 20 minutes and finally decided I must have been forgotten. Then i stumbled across Charlie harpers, I sat outside and friendly staff immediately came and served me. I had a delicious lunch at a startlingly good price in friendly surroundings. The staff (Molly) also took the time to give me directions and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely cafe, would really recommend this place.

Had a lovely veggie breakfast here. Neat cafe in three parts: a pavement area; a half-outside corridor; and a cosy inner room in front of a bar. I sat in the inner room. Fairly busy, not packed; plenty of staff on, so service was on the ball. My eggs were mainly runny, if a little hardened underneath. The breakfast was served hot, a big plus with me. Even the mushrooms, which are kept lukewarm in most cafes. Highlight was the sauteed halves of new potatoes, skin on. Also a good veggie sausage. With grilled tomatoes, toast, beans. Tea was hot and made with fresh water, though tea bag was left in, not ideal. This is a very good cafe.

We used to go to Charlie Harpers for the food & friendly atmosphere. Today, four us arrived at 3.05pm. We were met at door by an unsmiling waiter who said the kitchen closed at 3.30pm & cafe closed at 4pm. Fine we said. All I can say is, that he, the waiter should not be working on the frontline as he had zero customer service skills. Awful vibes and atmosphere. Shame as they’ve lost our custom

Hi Shelley I am really sorry to hear this, as this is not the attitude we wish to present. You should not have been spoken to like this ansd the restaurant does not shut until 4, and you should have been served food up to and including 3.45pm. The front of staff member has been spoken to and I would like to assure you this will not happen again. Gemma and I would like to invite you back FOC for lunch/ breakfast on us. Please either contact myself or Gemma in order that we can rectify this for you. Kind regards Chad Hobbis ( Owner) Plese contact us by email or messenger from the website or FB

Fresh food, made to order by people who truly are passionate about their work! Chichester is so full of eateries that are selling processed food, Charlie Harpers have an extensive menu with fabulous choices plus a great specials board. Served by brilliant staff!! Highly recommend

Great food, very hard working people doing what it takes to give you great food, friendly attentive service... and all without a big corporation making plastic food in Miltion Keynes that can hang about a week before being microwaved to go on your plate. What you spend here stays in the local area. Don't let the big chains destroy our local businesses.

Many,many cafes in Chichester but Charlie Harpers stand out way above the others. We always try and pop in for breakfast when in town and have to say it is a real 10 out of 10 whenever we are there. Don’t know where they get their bacon from but it’s the best bacon I’ve tasted. If you’re ever in Chichester make a point of stopping off and having something,you won’t be disappointed.

Our favorite cafe in Chichester, popped in for a lovely scrambled egg,smoked salmon on toast my wife had a sausage bap. Both choices were lovely and came in ample portion sizes. The cappuccino is the best in the city, wish we could visit more often. Lovely staff and great prices. Highly recommended.

Great food (as always!). I had gluten free eggs royale. I really liked the fact the hollandaise sauce came in a jug so I could choose how much to put on. Friendly, helpful staff.

This is tucked away and I have consistently missed it for years. Having put my car into a nearby Kwik fit for emergency tyre replacement, I finally ventured in. What have I been missing?? This place is great if you like a good breakfast. Brilliant bacon, perfect scrambled eggs, home made fried then roast (I think) potatoes? No problem! They even did a good cooked tomato, which is often a hot on the outside, cold in the middle, tasteless disappointment. Not here. The whole thing was delicious, the room is really nice and there is a great vibe emanating from the staff. I am considering wrecking my tyres just so I have an excuse to go back...
