Smoko, (many people used to have a cigarette at this time), morning/afternoon tea, whatever you call it, it's nice to have a break with your mates. In New Zealand, you must have some bickies (cookies) with your coffee or milky tea, preferably with some chockie smeared on it, but lately biscotti have become very popular, too. This cart is at the top of Trafalgar Street, at the bottom of the Cathedral steps, besides the whale. There is another coffee cart on the Trafalgar and Hardy Streets corner. They both serve good coffee.
In recent time, public locations where smoking is still allowed have been diminished greatly, but many people still call the small kitchen in the work place "Smoko Room".
(My workshop was fantabulous. None of us 12 participants will never be the same as weavers again; more thoughts elsewhere in due course.)
