With restrictions on capacity limits still in place, the Adelaide City Council are encouraging businesses in the food and hospitality industry to make the most of the outdoors.
For businesses that already use the maximum amount of space available on the footpath, or in cases where the footpath isn’t wide enough to accommodate to outdoor dining at all, the Adelaide City Council are exploring the possibilities of using existing parking bays to offer outdoor dining to patrons.
As part of Reignite Adelaide, from now until the end of October the council will be supporting businesses through an approval process for temporarily expanding outdoor dining into adjacent, underused footpath space or parking bays, as well as providing and installing planter boxes at no cost to businesses to add greenery and creating additional dining capacity for businesses in temporary parklet-style set ups.
DAYJOB Coffee are one of the businesses to make the most of the temporary expansions.
What was originally parking spaces have now turned into the cafe’s outdoor dining area which has doubled the venues capacity just in time for sunny Spring weather.
83 Halifax St has been the home of DAYJOB since 2019, and they have been a popular destination for coffee lovers ever since. Day Job offers a range of delicious toasties, rolls, foccacias and assorted muffins as well as various, locally sourced retail goods on offer in store, and they can now be enjoyed in their outdoor dining area spilling out onto the street.
The Adelaide City Council are assisting the food and hospitality industry to navigate through the current capacity COVID-19 restrictions, while encouraging these businesses to make the most of new outdoor dining possibilities.
