With Sydney’s current lockdown measures, it has never been more important to show your support for local businesses who may be struggling to find customers in this complicated time. We have compiled just a few examples of cafes and restaurants which are still open for takeaway, and we urge readers to help support any small business local to them.

Evolve Café, Wahroonga

A myriad of words could be used to describe Evolve’s dishes – vibrant, colourful, healthy and delicious. Not only does this café provide high quality food and service, but they also deliver weekly essentials packages for people in need of some extra assistance during these times.
