BORDER cafes are reinventing themselves quickly to negotiate the rapidly-unfolding COVID-19 pandemic.
Albury eatery Cafe Musette launched MusetteEats yesterday for home delivery of its coffee, cafe menu, take-home meals and Wolki Farm produce.
It has also teamed up with Cookaborough, an app designed for those delivering home-cooked meals within the community.
Cafe Musette owner Jacob Wolki said hospitality operators had to adapt quickly to survive the new trading environment.
"We (hospitality) are the first to be shut down because of the rules around social gatherings so it makes sense that we'll be the last to reopen," he said.
"But people still need access to meals and fresh produce.
"We're lucky we've got beef on our Thurgoona farm; we're now supplying a butcher because they can't get enough to keep up with demand."
Cafe Musette menu items and home-cooked meals are available for delivery within a 10-kilometre radius of the cafe seven days a week.
Wolki Farm produce from Thurgoona available for delivery includes pastured eggs, beef, pork and bacon.
Albury cafe and providore Clancy's Food Store is now offering its cafe menu as takeaway only.
It has also launched its range of click and collect items at its new website: clancysfoodstore.com.au.
Items on offer include cheese platters, tarts, curries, Mitta Beef pies, bolognese, frittata and lasagne.
Albury business Downtown Pizzeria is now delivering pizza to Albury, Lavington and Wodonga areas.
Menulog will be available for ordering from next week.
It will also deliver cocktails, wine and beer under relaxed liquor licensing restrictions.
