  WKA cafe
The other week we tried Voila on the other side of Sandringham Road, so we thought we'd try the cafe on the opposite corner. It goes by the name WKA whether we are meant to pronounce this: Orca? Weka? Walker? or just say the letters, I don't know. Maybe cafes with obscure names should provide a guide ;-)

The small and interestingly shaped space has a cottagey feel, there are tables outside, and apparently a partly covered courtyard (it was cold when we went, so we did not venture out). The decor is comfortable and there is a good supply of magazines. Though given the small space no couches.

Coffee: OK my long black came with water in a china jug (extra points) but the Allpress beans had been extracted giving a slightly bitter taste (so not an "excellent", or even quite a "good"). Barbara's Moccachino was "good, but a bit sweet" perhaps too much chocolate syrup or not the best syrup?

Food: Good I had "Lamb's Fry and Bacon" (Liver and Bacon to non-Kiwis) and B. the pancakes. The pancakes were Kiwi/Scottish style thick ones with blueberries in the mix and generous fruit as a side to the stack. The liver was (in both senses) well cooked (those who fear parasites in under-cooked liver need not tremble, but equally it had not been toughened by over-cooking either) and the gravy pleasantly spiced (perhaps a touch of juniper as well as orange) and spicy with a little chili. The bacon (with both pancakes and liver) was a tasty streaky.
