We’re socially distancing at least 1.5 meters apart in our party of two, our personal grooming has probably taken a hit but hey, it’s fine because we’ve been encouraged not to leave the house, and some families are juggling working from home while simultaneously home-schooling their kids.
But fear not, we still have coffee. Real coffee.
As cafes, cars and restaurants across our country now face the new trading restraints, now has never been more important to support our local businesses as they navigate through this strange new world to still bring us our favourite bites.
Below are the Plunkett Picks of the best takeaway coffee and food around the state:
