Is Australia still on lockdown? Yes, sadly so. This means that all our usual establishments are open only in a limited capacity, and this includes dining in restaurants and cafes.
For our friends in the East, we’ve compiled a list of restaurants and cafes serving takeaway and delivery, to ensure that you have access to food during your time at home.
Healthy food bowls are best enjoyed within the vicinity of Speedos Cafe, but (ironically), in the interest of keeping everyone at optimal health, it’s best to grab these lunches for takeaway. They also have their full menu on Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
Hours: Everyday, 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Phone: +61 2 9365 3622
Indigo will continue to serve their menu for pickup and home delivery, so you can stop daydreaming about your Acai cups and prawn pasta and start ordering! Their menu is also available on Uber Eats.
