Meals On Wheels
A Sidmouth cafe has started a delivery service in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Clock Tower Café has had to close because of the coronavirus, but has said it wants to protect staff jobs and support people who are having to stay at home.
The Owner, Justine Fraser said: “We want to help our community and we want to keep our business afloat and the jobs that go with it. So we are offering this to all our friends, neighbours and customers in this most difficult of times.”
A variety of dishes cooked to order in the café’s kitchens will be available, with free delivery in Sidmouth, Honiton, Ottery and Seaton. The café asks for 48 hours’ notice to prepare the orders, but Justine adds: “If you’re desperate we ‘may’ be able to assist, just ask!”
The meals will be made with fresh, ethically sourced local ingredients. Allergies and intolerances are catered for. All meals are vac-packed, sealed and in environmentally friendly containers where possible.
Justine says: “Although we aim to serve exactly what you order, we may have to change slightly to suit demand and to cater for changing ingredients and supplies, there is uncharted territory ahead. “
A two-course meal for two is £20, a three-course meal £25. The menu, order form and payment arrangements are available from the café’s website. Customers can also call 01395 515319.
