Charlie's Sandwich Shop

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, giving you the fuel to
be bright and productive.

While visiting Boston, several breakfast spots were recommended to us
so we decided to visit one that was close to our apartment.
Charlie's Sandwich Shop on Columbus Avenue was a perfect choice.

We arrived about 8:30 AM when most of the working crowd had finished.
The tables were still full so we sat at the bar giving us an opportunity to meet the family members that have been running the business for over fifty years.
The restaurant has been in business since 1927 when their father began the spot visited by many important people during the past 81 years.

Russ chose his favorite combination of scrambled eggs, real hash browns, sausage, and white toast. I chose a more gourmet breakfast of an omelette with spinach and feta cheese. It was served with hash browns and a salad with chick peas and fresh vegetables and wheat toast. The food was really great, but I discovered that it was enough food for three people. I asked the owner if I returned would they alter the menu for me, and they were delighted to meet my request.

The following morning we invited Peter to go with us, and again, we were served with a very warm reception and a willingness to please. I reduced the eggs to only one and the salad was doubled, leaving off the hash browns. It was perfect! Breakfast was enjoyed by all.

If we have a chance before heading home, we will visit them again. I give them a high rating on service, a willingness to please and a delicious menu!

Next time you want to treat yourself to a great breakfast don't forget Charlie's Sandwich Shop.
