Sydney cafe offers free coffee to lonely people amid coronavirus isolation period

Because nothing warms your heart or your soul like a free coffee!

Times are tough. There's no doubt about it. Amid coronavirus outbreak, parents are stressing over homeschooling. Singletons are lonely and feel cooped up in tiny apartments. And the kids? Well the kids are testing their parents' patience, but probably doing their best given they're not even allowed to see their grandparents without a FaceTime session.

On a lighter note, the owner of a Sydney cafe - one of the few places still allowed to visit during lockdown (if only for take away goods) - is taking it upon themselves to spread some kindness in the community. 

That's right, Sugar Baby Cafe of Randwick are offering free coffees to customers who feel a little lonely during this isolation period.

Sydney customer Arielle was overwhelmed by the random act of kindness displayed by the Randwick cafe owner.

The cafe has included a sign on the counter which reads: "To get through this hard time, we offer free coffee or food to those in need. Stay safe."

Speaking to LifeStyle, local customer Arielle Tsoukatos revealed she was estatic by the generosity displayed while she waited to pick-up her almond milk latte.

"It’s beautiful to see kindness in the community and be reminded that we’re all in this together," said Arielle.

"Just a simple token of generosity warms the heart!"
