Are you staying in Lane Cove this long weekend?  If so, we have the lowdown on what will be open on King’s Birthday Monday!!!

We have done the best we can at compiling this information; hours could be subject to change, so we suggest you double-check the details. This guide is just to give you an indication.  We have not put the specific hours as the feedback we have had from many businesses is that they want to be flexible with hours and if necessary, close a bit earlier.  This is particularly true for cafes.  Just bear in mind that some cafes will be open a bit later than usual and close a bit earlier.  The holiday falls on a Monday, and many Lane Cove restaurants don’t open on a Monday.
