Local late night institution Kardinia Café has topped a list of Geelong’s 10 most popular restaurants on Uber Eats.
The Newtown eatery, known colloquially as ‘K Café’, is a popular stop for revellers on the way home after a big night – pre-COVID and outside of lockdown, of course.
And night manager Sharon Hovey reckons the 24/7 opening hours could have something to do with the number one delivery rank too.
“We don’t close. [Except] for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day,” she said.
Thick shakes, chips and gravy, pizzas and souvlakis were among the most popular items for delivery, Sharon said.
“Considering everyone can get something where ever they want, no matter what they feel like, that’s very good for us,” she said of the ranking.
Peter Kurul and his family opened the food joint in 1986 and still run it today.
“It’s still the original owners,” Sharon said.
“We’ve still been affected [by COVID-19] but the loyal customers keep coming and we stay here for them.”
