There are limited choices when it comes to finding a good suburban cafe around the Mt Wellington and Panmure area, so when they developed the Stonefields market and the subsequent eateries, I welcome Charlie and George with open arms.
Food: With a good selection of food at Charlie and George, we were spoilt for choice when it comes to ordering our meal. They have a selection of breakfast and lunch dishes and a handful of vegetarian choices as well as dishes that caters for the gluten free and dairy free.
Coffee: Charlie and George serves certified Fairtrade organic coffee, roasted by Kokako. You can order drinks from the espresso machine or try the bottled cold brew. Apparently they also do Chemex coffee but on the two occasions that I asked, they were sold out! They also offer a selection of juice, tea, smoothie and bottled cold beverages.
Price: Well priced. breakfast around $13, lunch $18 and coffee $4.5
Location and Parking: Located in Stonefields Market, they have plenty of car parks for their customers. It’s a little hidden if you are not familiar with the area.
Dining Experience: Coming in on a late Saturday morning, the place was already busy with people that were wanting brunch. The place was still buzzing when we left at 1PM. We were very lucky to get a table! Service was friendly and they come and take your order. I like the decor and ambience. Very kid friendly with colouring pages and buckets of chalk outside.
