Ca­pers, where every­one knows your name


Ca­pers Cafe is a gem in the heart of Ter­race End tucked be­tween the BNZ and Count­down Su­per­mar­ket. At Ca­pers park­ing is no has­sle and it’s safe from overzeal­ous park­ing war­dens.

Ca­pers of­fers break­fast, lunch, great cof­fee and won­der­ful cakes and slices from the cabi­net. The muffins and scones have to be seen to be be­lieved. They are a feast on their own.

Ca­pers own­ers Rus­sell and Sue John­son say the se­lec­tion of teas must be the largest avail­able in the Manawatu.

Ca­pers serves black, green, herbal and fruit in­fu­sions, Earl Grey and Rooi­bos red bush tea for those seek­ing caf­feine free and low tan­nin tea. Chamomile and pep­per­mint are also served at the same price. If you like it, then Ca­pers can source re­tail pouches from their sup­plier for peo­ple to en­joy at home.

Fri­day evenings at Ca­pers has be­come a pop­u­lar buf­fet op­tion. For the small sum of $20 you can have two meats, this week is ham on the bone and roast beef in gravy, with roast veg­eta­bles, pota­toes, pump­kin and ku­mara, beans and baby car­rots fol­lowed by dessert, tea and cof­fee.

The buf­fet starts at 6.30pm. It’s fully li­censed, al­low­ing for a cold beer or glass of sau­vi­gnon blanc.

Ca­pers reg­u­lars Rona and Coby love com­ing to Ca­pers as the staff and own­ers, Sue and Rus­sell, are all so friendly.

‘‘Ca­pers is just like the TV pro­gramme, Cheers, where every­one knows your name,’’ they say.

‘‘Rona and Coby are also reg­u­lars at the Fri­day buf­fet and es­pe­cially the theme evenings like Hal­loween. The cafe was re­cently ren­o­vated and the at­mos­phere is just awe­some,’’ Rus­sell says.

So what are you wait­ing for? Come in, take the weight off your feet, re­lax with friends and make new ones. Ca­pers, no place I’d rather be.
