Serves You Right

We are absolutely loving the newly renovated 'Serves You Right!' Cafe on Unley Road! The new fitout was completed by the owner Nathan & some very dedicated friends in under 5 days... who needs sleep right? But the results are as fabulous & delicious as the Menu by chef Sam Worrall-Thompson (yes, for those English readers... the son of UK celebrity cook Antony Worrall-Thompson). We completely agree that the cafe (and gorgeous hidden courtyard) would make a fabulous venue for any party or event, particularly if there's any hint of a literary theme to reference - we LOVE the floor to ceiling bookcase and especially love that it's been filed by colour and that the complete works of Shakespeare are literally plastering the walls. The whole space is delightful and the food is mouth wateringly good, lately we've been a little guilty of making our Wednesday lunch an event for two at this fab little spot so thought it was definitely worth sharing...

  1. We are completely devastated to report that what appears to be as a result of this once fab venue changing hands, the gorgeous fitout has been massacred! The beautiful bookpage wall has been replaced by cream horror, black paintline faux dado & tacky doctors surgery like still life flower paintings... & the amazing bookcases have been eaten out by terrible scattered vacant shelves sporadically filled with coffee cups that aren't even intentionally kitch at their best... The menus had disappeared & the atmosphere was destroyed so much we didn't bother to stick around any longer than it took us to realise this was not the place we had love only a few weeks ago :( m&g

  2. I have to admit I liked the bookpage wall much better too :(

  3. (According to the new owners, the pages were peeling though and had to be taken down because they weren't sealed properly :/)
