Napier is home to “The Kitchen Table” – a retro-style café
set inside the “Hawkes Bay Photographers Gallery.” The gallery isrun by
photographer Shayne Jeffarres and the café is run by his wife, Catherine.
It’s a great arrangement- coffee machine and cakes on one
side- photographic prints are on the other. Customers happily stroll between
the two spaces.
During school holidays, Shayne runs photographic workshops
for kids. The café helps out by providing lunch.
Julie is an experienced photographer herself, having taken
many photos for her own cookery books and she gets fully involved in the
workshop, passing on handy tips, as well as helping to judge the results.
