It's a nice pit stop after going to the beach. Friendly staff and lots of flavors to choose from. Sit under the wisteria vines and enjoy the ambiance. I would give it a 8 out of 10 for their gelato.

Set among the grapevines on the side road between Matakana and Sandspit is Charlie's. A great selection of homemade gelatos, and the pizza oven is outside so you can watch pizzas being made. Beanbags available!

We love stopping at Charlie's and choosing ice creams for all of us. Sometimes we have been lucky enough to buy fresh grapes as well if the season is right.

Fantastic ice cream! Top choice for many of the local hotels to. The apricot was sensational. They also carry fresh strawberries when in season and are adjacent to a very interesting will shop. A 10 second detour off main road.
