About General Charlie Cafe

Filipino fusion fare with flair is on offer at General Charlie Café on Clarke Street in Crows Nest. Sunny Sydney days guarantee the patio is buzzing with guests enjoying a drink or treat, while comfy seating inside this light, bright and airy café makes for a calming oasis to linger over lunch, among potted palms and trailing ivy. Grab an organic Fair Trade tea or coffee to go with breaky tempters like French toast with purple yam flavours, topped with Ube ice cream; while lunchgoers wrap their hands around Charlie's ultimate burger with beef patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, special sauce and crispy fries. Every Filipino home has their version of adobo – delve into a bowl of marinated chicken fillets, soft boiled eggs, smoky pork floss and rice; finishing with a rich, leche flan.

Delectable dishes in such a homey atmosphere
General Charlie has captured my heart! They brought me back home with their Filipino-inspired dishes. I loved their Big Silog and Ube French Toast! Be sure to try their Sinigang Fried Rice, Chicken Adobo and Kamote Latte! I'll be back to try the rest of their mouthwatering, belly-filling, heartwarming menu! Thank you!


Great food, filo brekkie, coffee and milkshakes!
Generous serving, great twist to filo breakfast cuisine, cozy place, and great service and friendly staff!
