Say it ain’t so!
After nearly nine decades as a South End mainstay, Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe will unfortunately be closing its doors on Columbus Ave. in June.
The restaurant announced the news via Twitter on Monday morning.
We will be closing at the end of June. We would like to thank all of our friends, family, and customers for 87 years of great memories.— CharliesSndwchShoppe (@TurkeyHash) May 12, 2014
Opened in 1927, the iconic eatery garnered a following for its old-school, diner-style breakfasts, most notably for its famed turkey hash.
In addition to the restaurant’s slew of regular customers, Charlie’s has also attracted a number of celebrities throughout its 87 year history, including Sammy Davis Jr., Julia Child, and President Barack Obama.
