Days have become the same in this lockdown, but you’ll be happy to know that you’re not experiencing this alone. One great way to create variety in your day to day lives at home is to mix it up a little with the food you eat. 

We’ve compiled a list of joints in the Hills District that offer takeaways and deliveries. They, too, understand that these are not-so-normal times, but life must go on just the same.

The Baron

Castle Hill

Missing your daily dose of lattes and breakfast sandwiches? While customers can’t dine in The Baron’s beautiful rustic cafe right now, their food and drinks (including their coffee beans) are available for takeaway. 

Hours: +61 423 324 046

Tokio Fans

Baulkham Hills

Eating sushi is an activity best shared with people. But given the current situation, Tokio Fans believes that it would be best to enjoy sushi at the comfort of your own homes. Call their landline for takeaways and home deliveries! They’re also available on Uber Eats, Menulog, and Deliveroo.
