All-day dining seven kilometres south of the CBD.
Yeronga's newest eatery clearly loves its location. Why else would it reference its distance and direction from the CBD in its name? And line one of its walls with shelves made from salvaged timber, offering a reminder of the area's flooded past?
Yes, there's no escaping the distinctive local flavour at Seven South, though that's not all that the latest venture from former Home Cafe owners Gavin and Kylie Bartholomew champions. All-day offerings that give traditional dishes a tasty twist are the highlights of the Hyde Road restaurant's menu.
Take their hot cakes for example, which come bursting lemon thyme, blueberry and ricotta, and topped with creme fraiche and pistachio praline. Or their fishcakes for lunch, of the smoked salmon variety. You'll find meals that don't feature the word "cake" in their description, of course, such as smokey bourbon and maple glazed beef ribs. Plus, Seven South is dog-friendly — because you can't open a new neighbourhood hangout without welcoming pet pooches, too.
