It’s nearly the end of the decade – time to shout the team a well-earned Purple Weka spread.
Purple Weka Café and Bar is open and humming at 6am, so people can park outside the door to grab their catering order for get togethers in the boardroom or tradies’ toolbox shouts. It’s a great little licensed venue for functions too, seating up to 50.
Hands-on owner and foodie Stu has 20 years’ experience in the industry. He creates the best, from antipasto platters, egg ‘n’ bacon slices and sumptuous club sandwiches through to decadent scones with jam and cream. Purple Weka sells jars of its own homemade jam and marmalade too – a sweet as Christmas pressie!
Just like the café, it’s always wholesome, homestyle cooking for the popular catering service, Stu says. Around 36 hours’ notice is appreciated, but you can always ask.
Stu knows his customers and has high-protein fixes for an energy injection, like berry and banana high-protein shakes and a peanut butter and dark chocolate protein slice. Saintly yet sinful!
Those in the know also head for Purple Weka’s whitebait sammies at this time of year, which, subject to availability, are always a sell-out. It’s served Kiwi-style only – that’s between soft white bread with a squeeze of lemon.
