Jeremy and his crew at Cheeky Cow have been busy behind the scenes, changing things up to counteract the challenges of COVID-19, including new air-conditioning for better indoor air circulation, and increased outdoor seating for enhanced dining in the fresh ocean breezes.
“We’re also introducing a new menu ordering system,” Jeremy says. “This enables contactless payment and prompt ordering, as well as reduces peak-time bottlenecks. We’re really chuffed with this because it helps both our customers and the team.
“Like everyone, we’re ready to put this year behind us. We’re now looking forward to a better 2021 and celebrating everyone’s return to Cheeky Cow – and the beach.”
Now that indoor dining is back, bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment, plus customers must sign in as per government COVID-19 guidelines.
Brekkie is big at Cheeky Cow, whether to ‘eat out’, take home for a fantastic weekend family brunch, or grab on the way to work.
All the faves are on board, such as smashed avo, banana bread, toasties, eggs done all ways, and muesli and pancake stacks – as well as BLTs, BLATs and BLEATs. The breakfast and ‘recovery’ rolls are smashing, with homemade tomato relish adding a special touch.
Moving on to lunchtime and the New Yorker cheese burger (with aged beef) is a cracker, while a vegie burger and chicken schnitzel wrap/roll are other options.
Chips? Of course – and they’re beer-battered, while potato wedges are spiced and served with sour cream. Fish comes served with the chips, as do the chicken nuggets.
Sachin, the recently appointed manager, is known for his awesome coffee brews, which pair beautifully with the cakes and slices. Look out for Sachin’s new iced drinks – perfect as a summer pick-me-up or to take on a stroll along the nearby beach.
Cheeky Cow is dog-friendly, with plenty of water bowls outside. And in keeping with the café’s other sustainable practices, takeaway containers are biodegradable and there’s 50 cents off with BYO cups.
