The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is unlike anything any of us have experienced before. The guidelines and rules keeping our communities safe change rapidly, including Monday’s ban on eating indoors at cafes and restaurants. 

The ban however, at the time we are writing this, does not include take-away coffee, food and booze. A huge number of the ace cafes in our network are still operational, serving up Rumble Coffee for takeaway and bags of fresh beans you can take home. See the full list below. 

Other cafes we work with have also expanded or changed their usual offerings with take-home meals and grocery supply boxes, many with home delivery options. Ideal if you are stuck. Read on for more detail, but be sure to check in with the cafe directly as things are changing daily. 

Now more than ever, we cannot stress the importance of supporting small business - while we still can. For many, including those in hospitality, there is no work from home option. 

Your continued support of them during this time could be the difference between their doors being open on the other side or not. We’re all in this together.
