Staying in Kenai for Father’s Day? Treat the dad in your life to a delicious start to the day at Charlotte’s, a coffee shop and patisserie known for home cooking and sweet endings. Breakfast is served until 10:45 a.m. and includes the avocado bacon tomato scramble with sour cream served deep-dish style. Also try the sourdough stacks and add strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream for a savory and sweet combination.

Charlissa’s French Toast is a local hero with honey oat bread generously topped with honey cream cheese and fresh raspberries on the side. Jessica’s Twisted Oatmeal has brown sugar and your choice of “twist” including dried blueberries, raisins or craisins, almonds, pecans and walnuts.

Dad’s Indulgence

Start the day with the Southwestern hash, full of carnitas pork and onions, potatoes, green chiles and roasted red peppers. It’s the spicy kick Dad will love, topped with salsa, cheddar and sour cream. Don’t forget the croissant egg sandwich loaded with bacon, sausage or ham, scrambled eggs, gooey cheese and a side of house potatoes.

Late risers love Charlotte’s for lunch, whether it’s a massive salad or one of the house sandwiches. Try the Gobbs of Cobb with the Mandi’s Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich. Served on a sourdough hoagie with chicken marinated in sweet honey mustard, it’ll quickly become your new favorite go-to lunch.
