Stage Door wants you to share a milestone
Debbie Chadfield is celebrating 15 years in hospitality and she’d love her regular and new customers to come and enjoy the magic milestone with her.
Debbie has owned Stage Door in King Street for 18 months now and she’s just as excited about the cafe as when she opened the doors in late 2014.
Hospitality has always been important to her whether she’s serving customers, greeting them or moving around the tables, ensuring their experience at Stage Door is positive and memorable.
Debbie has a genuine interest in people and their welfare and offering hospitality is an integral part of her DNA.
‘‘We’ve sought to make Stage Door warm and friendly and one that people will call their own,’’ she says.
Over the last 18 months the cafe´ has grown from strength to strength in its selection of food and customer numbers. Debbie wants to increase the patronage further and bring the cafe back to what it used to be.
She reminds people that Stage Door is open seven days a week and serves a full breakfast and brunch menu. Last year the cafe was granted a BYO licence for people wanting to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with their meal.
With winter approaching, Debbie recommends people should try her delicious corn fritters and the unusually named bubble and squeak. This traditional English fare was said to bubble up when fried and squeak over the fire.
Debbie’s distinctive dish involves roast potato and kumara, chorizo and baby spinach pan fried with free range poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.
She invites people to come and try it.
Another favourite is her ever popular eggs benedict with a choice of bacon, salmon or pork belly.
The dish can be eaten for breakfast, brunch or lunch, Debbie explains.
And if a customer’s time is precious, there’s a generous selection of tasty, fresh food from the cabinet, cooked daily on the premises.
Stage Door, at the King Street end of Regent Arcade, is distinctive through its 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 is working towards displaying more legendary posters during the year.
There’s something very special about having Audrey Hepburn sharing the cafe with you.
