Cafe says bring your own bub­bles

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR EVENTS AND ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE -

Stage Door cafe´ in King Street is en­cour­ag­ing pa­trons to bring their bub­bles to break­fast.

Christ­mas is a busy time of year for Stage Door as groups tra­di­tion­ally book ta­bles to en­joy a fes­tive break­fast and lunch.

Owner Debbie Chad­field re­minds them that the cafe has a BYO li­cence and they can toast her de­li­cious meals with a glass of bub­bly.

While Stage Door is a mecca for sur­round­ing par­ties Debbie says it can al­ways cater for the in­di­vid­ual or group who call in for a cup of cof­fee, or­der from the set menu or se­lect from the cab­i­net.

Her spring/sum­mer menu in­cludes the ever tan­ta­lis­ing pork belly bene­dict, the very pop­u­lar bub­ble and squeak, corn frit­ters, now with ba­con av­o­cado, camem­bert and ai­oli as well as Stage Door’s leg­endary all day break­fasts.

How­ever, with sum­mer ar­riv­ing to­mor­row, Stage Door of­fers a house smoked salmon with a warm veg­etable and potato salad and salsa Verdi.

Debbie has also brought back her sought-after sum­mer sal­ads. Th­ese de­lec­ta­ble dishes come with op­tions of beef and feta, tan­doori chicken and pop­padum shards and hot smoked salmon and av­o­cado.

Christ­mas means dec­o­ra­tions, both in­side and out. Stage Door is ready to cel­e­brate Christ­mas in­side but it’s plan­ning an ex­cit­ing ex­ten­sion out­doors also.

Debbie is up­grad­ing the King Street frontage with street fur­nish­ings such as planter boxes, um­brel­las and more ta­bles and chairs.

‘‘Over sum­mer Ki­wis like the sun and love to en­joy their food and re­fresh­ment out­doors. My team at Stage Door wants to pro­vide that en­vi­ron­ment for them,’’ she says.

‘‘Pro­vid­ing an in­door/out­door op­tion, will at­tract pass­ing pa­trons and add vi­brancy to King Street.’’

Debbie took over the cafe just over two years ago. Since then she’s up­graded the in­te­rior of Stage Door – which she calls a des­ti­na­tion cafe´ - and built up the business and clien­tele.

She al­ready has plans for 2017 and, ex­cept for the stat­u­ary hol­i­days over Christ­mas and New Year and Sun­days, Debbie in­tends to stay open.

‘‘I want Stage Door to be the des­ti­na­tion of choice over sum­mer and through­out next year,’’ she says.

‘‘We have great park­ing, all day sun and we pride our­selves on of­fer­ing qual­ity food, ser­vice and hos­pi­tal­ity that is se­cond to none.’’
