COFFEE lovers looking for a caffeine fix will want to know when Costa is open over the Easter weekend.
The coffee chain has a range of Easter treats ready for the weekend too, including a "Hopping Bunny" gingerbread and a "Chirpy Chick" cake.
Costa can open for takeaway under coronavirus restrictions but customers still can't sit inside for another two weeks.
In the meantime, Costa drive-thrus and Costa Express machines are open too.
Is Costa open over Easter?
Costa says opening times for stores vary on Good Friday and Easter Monday depending on which one you visit so it's worth checking your local before setting out.
You can use the store locator tool to find out how to contact your nearest branch.
Normally, Costa branches open between 6am and 7am on Monday through to Saturday, and close between 7pm and 9pm.
Sunday hours are usually reduced to 10am to 4pm but some are open for longer.
Costa will be running normal hours on Easter Sunday.
Can you get Costa Coffee delivered?
You can get piping hot coffee delivered to your door with services like Deliveroo and Uber Eats.
On Deliveroo there is a £10 minimum charge to order from Costa and it's around £3 to have your order delivered.
And on Uber Eats the delivery charge can be a little less, but they have a small order fee of £2 so you'll have to put a few things in your basket to avoid that.
How much you're charged depends on how far away you live from the cafe.
If you don't fancy any of these options then you can also use Costa's free click and collect service by downloading their app.
