Platform No 5 Was Established in 2016
The Journey So Far
Platform No.5 was established in 2016 by Charlie and her husband. Their dream to run a small local business close to home and the kids school came to life and its being going strong ever since.
The community feel and returning customer base, is something that Charlie loves along with offering great meals at reasonable prices. Having a space where people can sit and enjoy great coffee and food with friends and family is so satisfying.
Charlie has 3 children and dedicates much time between juggling both her business and family life, which is super important to her.
We Love our Customers
Our loyal customers and growing new customer base makes our little cafe feel so rewarding.
Everyone loves food and coffee and sharing it with friends and family really brings people closer together.
Our Wonderful Team

They’ve all become extended family and we’re so proud to have them serving our community here at Glenfield.
