In Response To COVID-19

Dear customers.

In response to COVID-19 or Coronavirus we are implementing a few measures to help avoid the spread of this virus.

Just a few precautions. Better to be safe than sorry we think.

With the health interests of our customers, staff and local community in mind we will be seeking to implement the following practices until the situation improves.

We understand no one can afford to be sick and many of us are in professions where we can’t conduct our work from home.

We thank you, our loyal customers and friends for helping us achieve this aim.

  • Hand Washing
    The team behind the counter will be regularly washing their hands with soap and hot water especially when handling cash, clearing tables, polishing clean items from the dishwasher and when changing between tasks.
  • Increased sanitization
    We will be regularly spraying and wiping down tables, chairs, benches, POS and equipment using commercial grade sanitiser.
  • Sanitisation of trays and pagers
    Both customer alert pagers and meal trays will be sanitised on return.
  • Condiments and sauces will be kept behind the bar so as to avoid bottles, jars etc. becoming points of contamination. If you would like hot sauce or any other condiment included on your meal please ask us when you place your order. We usually season with salt and pepper but if your feel you need more please ask when you place your order also.
  • To avoid cross contamination, we will be washing water carafes after each use and regularly sanitising the tap. We kindly ask customers to refrain from filling their own water bottles from the water station.
  • When ordering coffee please let us know if you would like sugar. We will happily add the sugar when we prepare your drink or if you would like sugar sachets we will happily provide these to you on request.
  • We will no longer accepting reusable cups.
    To avoid the risk of cross contamination we are suspending service of take away coffee in reusable cups. We know this sucks, but we think at this time it is best to exercise caution.
  • Staff at The Modern Cafeteria who are ill will be asked to stay home from work. This could lead to longer wait times and the possible unavailability of some menu items. We appreciate your understanding here.

We ask that you please help us maintain this by:

  • Using digital or “tap” payment where possible. There is no minimum amount for digital transactions.
  • For take away and pick up orders we would direct you to our online ordering app. This can be downloaded through the Apple Store or Google Play. Online payments are preferred but we will still be accepting payment of orders on pick up where necessary.
  • Avoid making physical contact with the team behind the bar. No touching, shaking hands, high fives, hugs etc. please.
  • Where possible please avoid touching the counter or bar.
  • We ask that if you are unwell with a cold please cough into a napkin.
  • Please be patient while we get through this difficult time. We may announce further temporary changes but as soon as things improve we will return to normal
