Essential Delivery Services in Cape Town: The Lockdown List

Essential Delivery Services in Cape Town: The Lockdown List

You won’t need to leave your house during lockdown with our handy list of local delivery services and takeaway options.

Although supermarkets, pharmacies and a clutch of other retailers are operational during lockdown, remaining at home is the safest policy – and the best way to flatten the curve and contain the spread of Covid-19 in Cape Town.

Which is why we’ve rounded up all the operational delivery services in Cape Town: from fresh fruit and vegetables to free-range chicken and sustainably caught fish, and even cleaning products and pet food.

Dying for a takeaway meal? Take your pick from fresh croissants and coffee to hearty country cooking.

Do you know of any other delivery services and restaurants offering takeaways during lockdown? We’d love to add them to our list, so please pop them in a comment below.

Editor’s note The companies, restaurants and services mentioned in this post were operational at the time of publication. This is a live list that will be updated regularly.

    Our local shopping centre (constantia village woolworths, pick n pay and spar) no longer sell while cooked roast chicken. Please advise where we can purchase ready-cooked HEALTHY roast chicken. Pre-lockdown we would never consider the fast food suppliers. So why would we now???? Please can you assist. Thanking you

    Surely if some restaurants are allowed to do takeaways then all restaurants will open doing takeaways risking people’s of COVID 19 as one doesn’t know how the food was prepared.

      The virus is not spread by food. Is is mainly through droplets from person to person. One is more at risk doing grocery shopping than having it delivered

    Great – but I can’t find one that operates in my area – Table View – Checkers is preference and during this time, having things delivered is essential, I also need to buy food for my folks as I can’t get to them. Checkers???

    Hi – this is great, thanks! What would be awesome is to know the area/ range of delivery, e.g. does CPT include Stellenbosch?
