30+ Female-Run Restaurants To Buy Lunch/Dins From If You Wanna Eat Good While Supporting Women

The hospitality industry can be notoriously difficult to crack and like many areas in life, there are a slew of extra boundaries to navigate if you’re a woman.

It was International Women’s Day recently, and although you should always keep supporting the ambitions of the women in your life at the forefront, it’s the perfect opportunity to go that extra mile to ensure you’re getting behind female-owned businesses. Why? Because women are continually faced with challenges and ongoing systemic problems in their day-to-day, so setting aside one day to acknowledge it all and reflect on ways to move forward is essential.

After the hit your favourite restaurants, cafes and bars took during COVID, ensuring you’re showing up to support your fave spots has never been more important. So today, if cooking simply isn’t sparking joy, we highly suggest visiting or ordering takeaway from an establishment owned by a kick-ass female. Use this as your sign/excuse to treat yourself to a saucy Pad See Ew for lunch, or to a juicy burg for dinner. You’ll be supporting women’s businesses and indulging in something delicious which is the ultimate form of self-care – it’s a true win-win sitch.

Here’s a list of a bunch of incredible foodie establishments across every state that you can order from today (that all happen to be ~conveniently~ available via DoorDash) to support women in hospo and, treat yourself to a delish meal.
