I recently organised a lunch for 12 at Charlotte cafe based on reviews. It didn't disappoint. They gave us a nice big table down the back and were very attentive once we arrived. Everyone was very happy with their meals (the kids as well!) and the food was very reasonably priced, I especially liked the juice. They didn't rush us out the door and we enjoyed sitting and a chat and coffees as it was a nice quiet spot. I would definitely go back again as an alternative to the main hub of Balmain. It's a little calmer and you can get a parking spot quite easily.
