Charlies Gelato garden is a favourite chill-out spot for locals and visitors to the Matakana area.  We're easy to find, just off the main Matakana Road – look for the large red sign at 17 Sharp Road.

Inside the store you will find over 40 different ice cream (gelato and sorbetto) flavours on display. Many of them are made with our own fruit grown right on the property. 

You can also enjoy locally roasted coffee, and fresh home baking made daily in our Matakana kitchen. 

Outside the store, our gardens are designed for you to enjoy a moment. So, take a breather, grab a seat and relax. If you have kids, let them roam amongst the grape vines, but no matter how much they beg to stay, we do ask you take them home at night.
