COVID-19 update – we are currently still OPEN at Bones and Streets Ahead!

As COVID-19 ramps up around the globe, we are taking a few precautions to minimise the chance of any spreading not only within our teams at both @barebonessociety and @streets_ahead_cafe but also within our wonderful community.

We are currently trading as usual (and are planning to be!) but please note we are taking extra precautions with the ramping up of additional sanitisation of tables after every use, all food handling and cleaning procedures will be tightly monitored, and staff have been advised to stay home if they are unwell. At this stage, none of our staff have recently travelled to restricted countries and we do not believe anyone has been in contact with a person who has tested positive to COVID-19.

For the moment, we will not be accepting any BYO cups.

We do encourage you to give us a buzz on (07) 37155571 and have your meal prepared for takeaway if dining out isn’t essential. Our whole menu is available for takeaway and our friendly staff will be more than happy to read you out the daily specials from the blackboard too! You can find our menu online at 

During this time, all small businesses need your support, and a drop in trade effects everyone’s livelihood – including our staff and their families! We plan on riding out this storm and hope we have your support during this challenging time.

Stay safe, keep calm, and wash your hands peeps!
