Ate at Charlotte Lane on the suggestion of folks at the Cooper's Inn and the meal and service was excellent. I hope to be able to enjoy this wonderful spot again in the future!

We had dinner at Charlotte Lane Café, The food was excellent: fresh seafood for my Pasta Marina. Plenty of lobster, shrimps, mussels and scallops. I did not even need to touch the pasta. Everyone enjoyed his, her dish. The desserts were also well presented and very tasty. Big portions too. To crown the experience, the service was excellent, eager to please and attentive despite a full dining room.
If you are in Shelburne, it is worth trying this place.

The menu offered a good selection of not standard food. The meals are one of a kind, well prepared and a wonderful dining experience. Your hosts are fantastic people, very welcoming and friendly.

A little more expensive than a regular restaurant but well worth the money.

Did I mention the craft beers available?

Went for lunch on Friday to find out ALL of their specials were sold out! Now if that doesn't tell you this is a popular place I don't know what does. We decided to have the seafood chowder, that promised "lots of seafood". It was terrific and we did not leave a drop. This is not a cafe, as in diner type of restaurant. It is excellent, we frequently eat there!! Cannot say enough. Dinner is always a special experience and we are happy they are open for the summer and fall. One suggestion, make a reservation.

Thoroughly enjoyed Mother's Day Brunch at Charlotte Lane. Everything was terrific. Would go back anytime. Service was very good. The ambiance was upbeat and cheerful and everything was very well maintained.
