welcome!

what's on


We occasionally host Events and Feature Nights, embracing some of the best produce and entertainment our region has to offer.

We fire up the Pizza oven over the Summer months, and work with our Pantry to create and serve rustic deli-style platters and picnics all year round.

Tastings and Exhibitions. We’re constantly on the look-out for new produce that fits with our core Values, and occasionally we have produce tastings or exhibitions to present new ranges available in store.

events & feature nights

With gardens galore, we’re beautifully suited to offer open-air entertainment. From kids' parties to private pizza nights, Charlies can help create a welcoming setting for your get-together... be it for cheeky wedding photos, a birthday surprise, or just a good catch-up with old friends.

pizza

Charlies wood-fired pizzas are a summer holiday specialty. Just like our gelato, we make them the authentic Italian way. We prepare our own pizza dough from scratch in our kitchen, leaving it to proof overnight. Each summer morning we fire up the outdoor oven with local mānuka and start serving the freshest and tastiest traditional-style pizzas you will find.

Charlies pizzas are only available during the summer school holidays, normally from mid-December through to February.

A Matakana Must Do 😍
Charlies has been part of the local circuit for nearly 20 years, treating adults & kids alike to genuine Italian style gelato.
With Andrew & Tania at the helm for the last 6 years, the product & brand have continued to improve from the awesome business Charlie & Heather started all those years ago.
We ❤️ how many local folks we see again & again, and always welcome new suggestions on flavours to try.
Supporting many of the local sports teams & schools, we enjoy seeing the winners present their vouchers with glee, & swap them out for a scoop 🍦
Charlies Wholefoods launches the Pantry Platters this month. We're gearing up for plenty of ice cream cakes ready for pre-Christmas, & the 🍕 Oven is heating up for December 1st.
Keep up-to-date with our new flavours, events & improvements to our Slice of Heaven on Facebook & Instagram.
