There’s no denying it, coronavirus/COVID-19, whatever you want to call it, has us all shook. But before you go stockpiling minced meat and eggs (seriously, please stop), it’s important to take a moment to think about not just ourselves but people and businesses that will be affected by mass closures and loss of livelihoods.
It’s important to us that all of Noosa’s fantastic venues know that we're on their side. Right now is a pretty worrying time to be a small restaurant, cafe or bar in Noosa, so we’ll continue to champion the independent businesses across town in any way we can.
So whether you want fine dining or just your favourite local spot in the isolation of your lounge room, here’s who to call (after sanitising your phone) for the best takeaway in Noosa. Some are even offering delivery to help keep their staff employed—check with individual venues for options.
Light Years Asian Bar & Diner
