Saturday Night Dinner Experience and Special Functions
Hansen’s Cafe and Store is pleased to announce the launch of our Saturday Night Dinner Experiences. We aim to hold these events on the first and third Saturdays of each month and are by reservation only to help us with planning. We have carefully created a range of complete menus which include hors d’oeuvre, main with sides, dessert and special non-alchoholic drinks. These are wonderful evenings to share with family and friends and to meet new people in the district. Please contact us if you would like to join our newsletter email list that announces each meal and offers reservations.
We also cater for birthdays, anniversaries and end of year work functions for up to 55 people. We offer set menus with prices ranging from $20 – $45 per person and these can be held outside of our normal cafe opening hours. Please contact us if you are interested in your group’s celebration at Hansen’s.
