We’ve missed a lot of things during lockdown…. including being able to dine-in at local, family friendly cafes! From Monday 11th October, stay at home orders ends which means we can eat at a local cafe again (if you’re vaccinated) – YAY! But for a variety of reasons, some cafes won’t be reopening for dine-in just yet or may be opening for different hours. So to make it easier for you know which of your favourite local cafes are doing dine-in and which are sticking with take-away, we’ve listed the details below for some of the most popular (family-friendly) cafes in the area (listed alphabetically).

And the good news is that 18 out of 31 are OPEN for dine-in from 11th October. We’re unsure when six cafes are reopening for dine-in. And the other seven will continue to provide take-away only for a little while yet. Details of when each cafe is reopening for dine-in are listed below (where we know them).
