“We get some probably every day,” she said.

“Most of the customers are surprised at first and then it starts a chain.

“The longest chain we’ve had is probably 10-12 cars.”

A recent post on the cafe’s Facebook page thanked the community.

“Thank you so much to our customers on a daily basis that continue to show their kindness and support for not only us but for people behind them, we cannot believe the amount of customers that continuously pay for others coffees/orders, without a blink of an eye.

“This really makes the staff feel that bit more lucky to be here and see this every day.”
