“Cafe owner finds online fame with funny ‘contactless delivery’ video…“
Thank you so much, you brightened the day! Am Stratford born now living in Mangonui far north. With a group of friends attend WOMAD each year to get my Naki fix, we will be visiting your cafe next year for sure!
Keep sharing the joy you wonderful generous folk. Stay safe
A Taranaki cafe owner’s cup and cutlery tossing take on table service under alert level 3 has propelled her to online stardom.
In the viral video, posted on Oakura cafe Lemonwood Eatery’s Facebook page, Barbara Olsen-Henderson, wearing a home-made surgical mask, stands at a safe distance and tosses a tray of items at mannequins at a table.
“Most people have found it highly amusing. It amuses me still, just chucking those things, especially the cutlery, it was like a real Fawlty Towers moment,” she said.
“There have been something like 84,000 views and it has reached a gazillion people; I couldn’t believe it. I was thrilled when we got to 1000, every time I look there’s a few thousand more.”
The idea came from seeing a similar Dutch video, and a conversation during a Zoom meeting with some other Taranaki restaurateurs.
