Southern Highlands businesses continue to reinvent themselves to survive the global COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to bring you updates on how these businesses are adjusting to tough and ever-changing circumstances and regulations.
The father and daughter team of Pascal and Chloe Timores from Kookabar Cafe in Bowral has introduced new ways to deliver their popular fare.
They have opened the front windows to their Wingecarribee Street cafe so that customers can order takeaway food and drinks from an outside location.
They have also introduced a new home delivery service.
The decision followed a Federal Government directive that came into force at midday on March 23 prohibiting cafes and restaurants from offering an eat-in option.
Chloe said "keeping our head above water" had become a priority following the new regulations.
"We just want to make it through these tough times so that we can continue when things are better," she said.
"I know everybody is affected by this [pandemic]. We have to find other ways to do what we do, and look out for each other."
Chloe said customers would be able to continue to access takeaway food and drinks through the window.
While home delivery order would also be taken.
"We have a lot of older clients who want to stay at home, but we don't want them to miss out on what they have always enjoyed," she said.
"Our home delivery service will bring some normality to their lives."
Chloe said the aim was to keep the menu as close to what it has always been, wherever possible although their could be a few items that could change.
"We all need to stick together as the community."
Kookabar will continue for serve the community Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 3.30pm. Home delivery orders can be made by calling 4861 5172 or 0432 036 589.
