Where to get (or not be able to get) coffee this Christmas period

If you’re like us, and you’re someone that prefers a café made coffee than one made at home, be sure to check store opening hours so as to not be disappointed.

We’re sure the cafes and baristas need a break too, and it seems to be the case, with a lot less stores open this year. Thankfully some stores are open, yet with reduced hours over the Christmas and New Year period. We’ve listed a few of our favourite cafes here to make that search a little easier for you. I’ve noted closure dates for each cafe, as well as those open, but you will need to check their IG for specific hours. I’ve begun with those open on the public holidays for ease of reference.
