A sumptuous spread: Purple Weka Cafe and Bar


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.

To arrange catering – no order too large or too small – or to pre-order fabulous takeaway coffee, phone 03 366 0258, or visit www.purplewekacafe.co.nz for the catering menu. Pop down to Purple Weka on Fitzgerald Avenue, which is open seven days a week, if you haven’t already.

With plenty of comfortable indoor and outdoor seating and onsite parking, the café 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 one gentleman described as, “The best omelettes 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 worth exploring.
Along with whitebait, there’s a wide variety of new options to try. Why not give one of the famous cheese rolls a go, with mince and cheese straight from Otago? Purple Weka is also fully licensed, so wine and beer are available. It’s a great location to meet your friends on the weekend too. 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.
