The City Council directed staff at its April 7 meeting to establish curbside restaurant pick-up locations on Orange Avenue to help local businesses that can no longer offer sit-down dining and are suffering a significant decline in sales. Due to County public health orders, some Coronado restaurants have transitioned to providing pick-up and delivery to continue operating. As a complement to suspending parking enforcement on Orange Avenue, pick-up zones for customer and delivery driver pick-up can make it easier to access restaurants and encourage ordering. Coronado is home to approximately 80 restaurants, most of whom have either closed or substantially reduced their business. A large number of businesses on Orange Avenue have temporarily closed while pedestrian traffic is nearly nonexistent as the community observes the Governor’s stay at home executive order.

Curbside pick-up locations were established for the following restaurants who made a request: Garage Buona Forchetta; Burger Lounge; High Tide Bottle Shop & Kitchen; Little Frenchie Bistro & Wine Bar; Starbucks; Swaddee Thai Restaurant of Coronado; Villa Nueva Bakery Cafe; and Yummy Sushi. The zones have been posted with signs and are just outside of the restaurant.
