Just when life was being to feel back to ‘normal’…. we’re back to staying home to stop the spread of covid in our community. It isn’t ideal for any of us, particularly being school holidays. But I particularly feel for local businesses who were just getting back on their feet. So while we can’t enjoy a meal with our family and friends at our local cafe at the moment, we can still enjoy their food and support them by getting take away or home delivery.

To make it easier for you to support a great local cafe, we’ve listed the opening hours and operations of some of the most popular (family-friendly) cafes in the area (listed alphabetically). You’re welcome!
