Eating Out: Charlie's Raw Squeeze at Everton Park

I've had a few more chances to visit Charlie's lately. This visit was a lunch run from work one day, after seeing that they had a $5 wrap special posted on Instagram.

Of course I had to get a smoothie, and this was the large Charlie's Chocbananarama ($10), which has bananas, cocoa, dates and maca powder. It was chocolately banana goodness.

The wraps on special were their new 'rainbow wraps' ($5 for special, $8.50 normally), which had kale, red and green cabbage, carrots, cucumber, beetroot hummus and beetroot cream cheese as well as your choice of either smoked tofu or avocado. I don't know why they didn't just put the avocado and tofu both on the wrap together, which would have been awesome! When I got there, they only had the tofu one left. It was really nice, lots of fresh and crunchy veggies, but I do wish there was some avocado in there as well!

Of course I had to finish up with a plain cinnamon bun from Cinnayum. I love these!

Here is also a slightly shiny photo of their cabinet, which is where all the salads, wraps and sweets live and is entirely vegan!

On this visit I also noticed that they do have some tables and chairs outside and to the side of the entrance, as well as a little bar inside, so you can eat there if you wish!

I have been eating a Charlie's several times lately, so I hope you won't get sick of all my posts about it!

    1. Tofu and avocado go so well together, it seems silly not to!

  3. A dramatic cat, hehe.

    I feel like I'd eat there often if I lived in the area. The desserts look fabulous. But I get your point: why not combine tofu and avocado!

    1. So dramatic. Her dramatic face. Her dramatic meow. Though they are quickly replaced by a little squished up face of joy when you pat her. :)

  4. Looks like a good place to eat! That chocolate banana smoothie sounds especially delicious. It's funny how I never seem to make that kind of smoothie at home but it's always the kind I love to order out at a restaurant ;p
    Grace is a very cute kitty!!

    1. I saw it on the menu and thought 'but you could make that at home so easily'... and then I thought 'yeah... but you don't'. So I ordered it, and it was yum!

    1. It is made by an Australian company, and I saw that they had jars of it for sale in the fridges. Though very expensive! Still, one day I will get some.
