En­joy your birth­day treat at Stage Door

The Tribune (NZ) - - ENJOY! -

Stage Door cafe´ wants to help peo­ple cel­e­brate their birth­day.

Stage Door owner Deb­bie Chad­field be­lieves peo­ple’s birth­days are very spe­cial and she in­tends to make the oc­ca­sion af­ford­able by pro­vid­ing a free meal.

Deb­bie says if the birth­day male or fe­male dines at Stage Door with two or more pay­ing guests then she’ll ‘‘pick up the tab’’ for the spe­cial oc­ca­sion per­son.

The of­fer be­gan at the start of Fe­bru­ary and al­ready Deb­bie’s had plenty of in­ter­est ex­pressed, how­ever, be­cause of terms and con­di­tions, she rec­om­mends peo­ple book due to the pop­u­lar­ity of the pro­mo­tion.

‘‘When peo­ple come to Stage Door for a spe­cial event we want to be pre­pared and fully staffed,’’ she says.

Stage Door has had a great Christ­mas and new year with a num­ber of cus­tomers tak­ing ad­van­tage of the cafe´’s BYO li­cence. In par­tic­u­lar peo­ple at­tend­ing cor­po­rate func­tions over the hol­i­day pe­riod have ap­pre­ci­ated the chance to bring their favourite bot­tle. The li­cence al­lows any­one din­ing at Stage Door for lunch or dur­ing the day to en­joy a wine with their meal.

‘‘It’s been very pop­u­lar with in­di­vid­u­als and groups,’’ she says.

A par­tic­u­lar at­trac­tion over sum­mer has been Deb­bie’s Stage Door sal­ads. If din­ers want a light and re­fresh­ing meal then her salmon and av­o­cado salad has proved very pop­u­lar dur­ing the warm weeks.

An­other spe­cialty of the house has been her corn frit­ter stacks which are veg­e­tar­ian and gluten free.

Deb­bie re­minds cus­tomers that, as well as the ta­ble menu, Stage Door has its black­board spe­cials and her en­tic­ing cab­i­net op­tions.

Now into her se­cond year of own­ing Stage Door, Deb­bie and her team look af­ter her reg­u­lars and in­vite new din­ers to check them out or find out more on Face­book or Stage Door’s web­site.

Stage Door, at the King Street end of Re­gent Ar­cade, has a strong the­atri­cal flavour. Posters from four fa­mous Hol­ly­wood movies – Stage Door, Casablanca, Gone With the Wind and Break­fast at Tiffany’s adorn the walls and Deb­bie prom­ises to dis­play more leg­endary posters dur­ing this year.

Stage Door is proud of their de­lec­ta­ble salmon and av­o­cado salad and corn frit­ter stack.
