Every neighborhood needs the requisite corner store but no community can compete with this quintessential small family owned and operated deli in both Radcliffeborough and on Spring Street. One can find last minute kitchen essentials, breakfast sandwiches served all day long, Boar’s Head meats and cheeses from the deli, and freshly made-to-order sandwiches. Charlie’s is famous for their falafel, a secret family recipe topped with a tomato, cucumber, onion salad and finished with fresh tahini sauce. Be sure to add the hummus and homemade hot sauce for $6. Starting this summer, the family is rolling out their new sandwich menu which will include items like “The Heart Attack,” a hoagie with chicken tenders, fries, cheese, bacon and mozzarella sticks all served on the same roll. Homemade chicken salad, a Cheesesteak made with London Port roast beef previously marinated in port wine and garlic and the “Philly Blunt,” a cheesesteak with fries and bacon will be a part of the new additions. A great beer selection, as well as a bevy of other cold beverages, accompanies the eclectic menu. —Katherine Connor
