If you had the power to never wait again, would you use it? Sure you would. So, we’ll ask you a totally unrelated or leading question, if you could walk into Australia’s best cafes and have your coffee and favourite food ready for you to grab and leave without having to pay, would you? Sure you would. So what are you waiting for? Download Skip and start skipping.

Why use Skip?

Skip is more than just a pre-order and payment tool that lets you quit queueing for coffee and food. I mean that’s pretty great and it saves you heaps of time in your busy day, but there’s so much more to it.

Throw away your wallet; they’re so 2016 and we all know how that year went—it was the Blend 43 of years. Skip lets you pay securely online so you can forget about carrying cash or your wallet next time the need for coffee and food strikes. If your food and coffee is a tax deduction, or you just enjoy keeping track of your expenditures, you will love Skip’s weekly invoice outlining your spend.

You know the rush you get when you’ve ordered a coffee and the barista tells you about their loyalty program? Sweet! Just 14 more coffees and you get a free straw—epic! You diligently slug coffees striving for that dangled carrot until one day, just two cups shy of that magic 15th coffee, you’re hanging out the washing. What’s that pulpy mess in your pocket? That’s 1999 calling for it’s outdated loyalty card, my friend. Skip has built-in loyalty so you don’t need to keep track of it. And even if you put your phone through the wash, your Skip loyalty will be waiting for you on your new phone. When you reach your loyalty goal, Skip automatically redeems it at checkout when you order a coffee.  Nothing tastes as good as free coffee feels.

Skip is also a brilliant way to discover your nearest waitless coffee when you’re exploring new cities or suburbs. If you’ve wandered off the edge of your coffee map, just jump into Skip, tap SEE NEARBY VENUE and it’ll show you a list of your nearest venues and how far away they are—how good’s that? Tap on the venue for its address and other venue information such as their type of coffee, soy milk, and venue amenities (parking, wheelchair access, pet-friendly, pram friendly, etc).

Skip grants you the super power of waitlessness and it’s cram-packed full of other awesome features.

Kale chips and cronuts, freak shakes and acai – while still drawing in the crowds, they’re sort of old news. If you’re wondering what the next big things in food and bev trends will be you’re in the right place! Join us as we talk through what’s trending up and down the Aussie east coast.

Alcohol-free
With health consciousness now being accepted and properly appreciated in society, you can get away with ordering almost any drink you choose without the judgement of your peers – phew! More and more Aussies are going alcohol-free or taking a break from the booze, and to meet the demand the number of non-alcoholic beverages on offer when you’re out and about are only continuing to rise.

Next time you go reaching for that pint, schooner or glass of bubbles; be a little more adventurous and try out one of the many herbal teas, pressed juices, coconut waters, kombucha and other gut-friendly, probiotic-filled goodies that are packed with flavour – minus the nasties.

Alternative lattes
There’s nothing new about dairy free milk options, but when it comes to the classic latte some spots have been spotted taking alternative variations to a whole other level.

From turmeric or golden lattes that are said to possess healing and nourishing qualities, to more experimental and buzz-worthy blue algae or beetroot variations, choosing your morning brew just got a whole lot harder!

Charcoal
If the charcoal theme creeping into many cafés, restaurants and bars is anything to go by, black is well, the new black. If you haven’t already encountered the charcoal influx just yet, it’s likely to come your way soon enough.

Aside from the digestive cleansing benefits activated charcoal is said to have, it sure does get people talking (or gawking from the next table). Expect to find it in any number of forms from burger buns to pressed juices and even fish and chips.

Cookie Dough
Remember all those times you bought the pre-made cookie dough roll and ate it raw? Well now you can and enjoy this sugary treat in all its uncooked glory without the guilt or worry of getting ill! Everyone’s going crazy for cookie dough right now and we anticipate it’s a trend that will only continue to grow in popularity.

Skip has teamed up with CafeSmart in an exciting move! 

We’re pulling together the forces of good coffee, goodwill and good-old community spirit to help those experiencing homelessness. 

You might not know that 42% of people experiencing homelessness are under 25. 

CafeSmart and it’s generous band of cafes are supporting amazing organisations like Youth Futures to help these young people. 

“With the support from CafeSmart, we are able to provide young people with care packs which include a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, a brush, deodorant, underpants and socks. You would be amazed with the transformation and confidence that can occur immediately once a young person has had access to a good meal, a warm shower and a safe place to sleep for the night." – Youth Futures.

If you had the power to never wait again, would you use it? Most people would say, “of course!”, some may say, “nah, waiting isn’t that bad” but we just think, “why wouldn’t you?” So, we’ll ask you a different question; if you could skip the wait every time you order food and coffee from Australia’s best cafes, would you? Of course you would. 

Skip is more than an app that lets you quit queueing for coffee and food. I mean it's pretty great that you can pre-order and pay to save you heaps of time in your busy day, but there's so much more to it.

Cardless, cashless, queueless. It's time to embrace the digital wallet and leave your receipt jammed wallet at home. Skip lets you pay securely online so you can forget about having cash or your wallet next time the need for coffee and food strikes. If your food and coffee is a tax deduction, or you just enjoy keeping track of your expenditure, you'll love Skip’s weekly invoice outlining your expenses.

Skip is also a brilliant way to discover your nearest waitless coffee when you’re exploring new cities or suburbs. If you’ve wandered off the edge of your coffee map, just jump into Skip, tap SEE NEARBY VENUES  and it’ll show you a list of your nearest venues and how far away they are. How good is that? Just tap on the venue for its address and other helpful information such as their brand of coffee or varieties milk, opening hours and venue amenities such as parking, wheelchair access, pet-friendly, pram friendly, etc.

Are you the type of person that gets a rush when the barista tells you they have a loyalty program? Uh huh! Well you can forget about treating that stamped coffee card like a magical ticket to destination caffeination. Skip has built-in loyalty so you never need to keep track of it. And even if you put your phone through the wash, your Skip loyalty will be waiting for you when you log into the app on your new phone.

You'll notice when you've reached your loyalty goal on your regular order with the appearance of a red heart and the word 'Free'. To redeem just order your coffee as usual and it will automatically be redeemed. Magic!

(By the way Kinship & Co in Melbourne’s CBD gives you a free coffee every 5th order and Scout's Honour in Sydney every 7th.)
