Update: Annam, Attica's Bake Shop, The Baths, Etta, Ish, Leonardo's Pizza Palace and Pho Nom are no longer offering takeaway or delivery. These listings have been removed.

Think takeaway, and pizza and souvlaki might come to mind. But with people being asked to stay home to control the spread of COVID-19, some of Melbourne's best restaurants and cafes are getting into the takeaway and delivery game.

Eating restaurant food at home requires a change of mindset, from enjoying the entire atmospheric experience of dining out to simply appreciating the food in our own surrounds.
