We ate here tonight. The menu is very extensive . The vegetable selection is great. The restaurant is great for families on a budget. My wife had the trout. I had the meatloaf and my daughter had the spaghetti. We were all pleased with our meals. The service is also very good. Easy to get a quick meal without having... More

Came for a quick lunch. Not disappointed but not especially impressed. Grilled cheese sandwich (american) and soup. Menu is varied. A place to get a good meal at a decent price with an acceptable value.

Lunch with Hubby. Hubby has never been to Charlotte Cafe, wants to go there. In a half empty restaurant at 12:30 pm on a Friday, I didn't see the inspection score. I realized later that the cashier was standing in front of it as we were being seated. (Deliberately hiding it ?) I ordered the fish "special", $11.95. Hubby gets... More

My wife and I enjoy the Café and our favorite entrée is their grilled trout which comes with two sides selected from a list of many. Nothing fancy but good food and service.

I had been seeing the ads in the paper and I generally like diners, so I figured I'd check it out. The place was mostly empty for dinner. Sweet tea was good. I ordered pork chops, mashed potatoes and fried zucchini. The pork chops were decent, although a little greasy. The mashed potatoes were okay- definitely homemade with lumps in... More

This place could use some pointers from the show that installs cameras to watch what happens. Half empty restaurant, one server watched TV, another (the owner) ignored my request for a drink refill. I guess you get attention if a "regular" - which I'll never be. Not impressed.

I took my adult daughter here for a lunch of home cooking. We both had chicken and dumplings and two sides and iced tea. We shared one banana pudding. Our meal was very good, however, i was shocked at the cost. Including tip (probably 18%) our bill was $36.00. I feel that is way too much for a lunch of... More

The Charlotte Cafe is a throwback to the cafés of yesterday with good comfort food and attentive waitresses. This is my elderly aunt's (78) favorite spot to eat and a group of five of us had a delightful lunch here on a late Sunday morning. We requested and were given a private dining room so we could dine and visit... More

Walked in and the place full but not packed. Sat down and looked at the menu and my mouth began to water! I ordered the cabbage and corn beef, carrot salad, pinto beans and corn bread with hot green tea. It tasted as good as I expected it too. I took a picture after my first bite of each item.... More

Charlotte Cafe has been around a long time. It is a bit pricey for the standard Southern meat and three but it is in Charlotte after all and the cornbread, collard greens, okra and tomatoes, baked apples bring good memories. But now I have a very bad memory. I went out of my way to go there in order to... More
