Since 2007 Bridge Street Coffee & Tea Company has established itself as a hangout and melting-pot for locals, visitors, and travelers from many walks of life. A surprising selection of home-made and customize-able breakfast, lunch, and dessert goodies compliment its specialty coffee and tea offerings in an atmosphere unlike any you will find in the area.
Due to the owner's commitment and time spent in and around the shop, should you have to stop and ask for directions, more locals know Bridge Street Coffee & Tea Company as simply Charlie's.
Upon entering you are greeted by the smell of fresh brewed coffee, delicious baked goodies, and the savory aromas of the day's soup selections. The chatter and laughter of friends, neighbors, or even and often strangers gives you a feeling similar to that which you experience upon arriving at the home of a close friend for a casual social gathering.
The seating is open and first come first serve with the occasional reservation for larger groups, and comes in a variety of types and styles. More traditional dining tables and chairs accompany high-top bistro tables and stools in the main dining areas. In one corner you will find an elevated area with over-stuffed chairs and a coffee table, and towards the back of the house there is a cozy and often overlooked 'living room' area offering a couch, a couple of arm chairs, and an ottoman all positioned around a picturesque fireplace.
The family and staff at Bridge Street Coffee & Tea Company seek to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable visit whether for a few minutes while getting coffee and a light bite on your way to work, meeting a colleague for lunch, or hanging out and catching up with a friend or family member for hours.
So stop in and sit awhile. Relax, unwind, and enjoy "Good Coffee, Good Times, and Good Company" at Bridge Street Coffee & Tea Company (a.k.a. Charlie's).
