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.

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.

If you’re sad to see it go, be sure to stop by this South End institution sooner rather than later.
