Friends Nancy and Mark love Sprig and Fern on Handy Street. It's a pub, their coffee is good, and they have nice pub food. On Friday Ben and I saw the pies in the warmer and had Pork and Porter (their beer) Pies for lunch. The red drink is their limited edition cider. Their staff are a tad older than other places, so you're guaranteed good service any time of the day, but if you want to go for drinkies you're advised to arrive early because by 5 it's standing room only.
What I really wanted to show you was the tomato sauce (as opposed to ketchup) container that was a Kiwi institution up to perhaps the mid-90's but is fast disappearing. We still have ours!
