A Kiwi-as Café: Purple Weka Café

Purple Weka Café and Bar is one of Christchurch’s best relaxed weekend dining spots, where good fun and great service goes hand in hand with great Kiwi-style breakfasts and lunches.


Purple Weka Café


Located at 48 Fitzgerald Ave, the café has plenty of comfortable indoor and outdoor seating and onsite parking. It offers a stylish ambience and friendly atmosphere, second to none. For Purple Weka, a new season means a tantalising new menu. Start your day by getting stuck into a succulent omelette, which has been described as, “The best omelette ever”.

The eggs benedict or a hearty big breakfast are all part of Purple Wekas’ popular breakfast menu. The mince on toast with a soft poached egg is always an old favourite but there’s so much on the menu at Purple Weka worth exploring. Along with whitebait, there’s a wide variety of new options to sample. As well as traditional cheese rolls try the cheese and corn or cheese and mince rolls – a Central Otago fav!

Purple Weka is also fully licensed, so wine and beer is available. It’s a great location to meet your friends on the weekend too with plenty of parking. All sweet and savoury delicacies are made fresh each day and the kid’s menu means the wee ones’ cravings will be catered for. Speaking of catering, Purple Weka is also able to provide your next work or social function with quality eats and beverages.

Kiwi as: funky little haven of good old fashioned Kiwi hospitality at the Purple Weka Cafe

It’s definitely ‘Kiwi as’, from its traditional ma’s savoury mince dish to the rustic recycled fence planking around its servery counter. And of course there is the name and its association with a cheeky Kiwi flightless bird, the weka – though you may not find any purple ones in the wild.

Being Kiwi is the essence of the Purple Weka Café and Bar’s charm. It’s owned by a Kiwi family and offers great Kiwi hospitality, service and food. That’s why people from all over town who have discovered the café keep coming back, especially in the weekend, to enjoy a lazy breakfast, brunch or lunch among convivial company. Many customers have met over the café’s substantial hearty food and become friends for life.
Great comfort food, great coffee and a warm friendly atmosphere are what we look for in a café as we come into winter. The Purple Weka is in its element at this time of the year. How better to warm yourself up than with a serving of hot cakes with lashings of maple syrup, or creamy mushrooms served on toasted ciabatta, or one of the café’s famous soups?
Perhaps a big breakfast with all the trimmings, a steak sandwich, or even a generous serving of blue cod and fries are more to your taste. The Purple Weka knows the way to a Kiwi’s heart is through tasty food, cooked and served superbly well, all at very reasonable prices.
Another plus for the cafe is the abundant parking right outside the door at 48 Fitzgerald Avenue – not something you generally find so close to the CBD.
