FOODIES on Brisbane’s south side can wake up to a refreshingly different dining scene this month, with the opening of a new cafe in the leafy suburb of Yeronga.

Seven South, named for being just seven kilometres south of the CBD, is the latest venture to be created by Gavin and Kylie Bartholomew, who previously owned Home Café in Ashgrove.

With a full-day menu that offers breakfast, lunch, bar snacks, dinner and desserts, Seven South puts its own twist on traditional favourites to serve locals a finger-licking list of top-notch meals in a comfortable setting.

Diners can expect to sample new flavours such as; lemon thyme, blueberry & ricotta hotcakes; grilled pork & fennel sausages; porcini sformato with shiraz reduction; smoked salmon fishcakes; and smokey bourbon & maple glazed beef ribs.

The fit out is clean and minimalistic, with accents of copper and greenery throughout, as well as a timber feature wall that is built of materials from the Brisbane floods to compliment its urban location.

Gavin and Kylie, who have more than 30 years of combined hospitality experience in Australia and abroad, said they wanted to create a place where people could feel at ease, while enjoying excellent food and service in a great atmosphere.

“We take fresh produce, respect it and create beautiful tasting dishes that look great on the plate – everything that can be made in-house is made by our team of chefs,” said Kylie.

“We’ve carefully thought about food pairings for both lunch and dinner, working closely with our wine supplier to ensure our food has a great wine to match.

“Our dishes are well priced and we are family friendly, plus we also love dogs and have plenty of space out the front for dogs to come with the family – we’ll give them some love and a water bowl.”

Head chef Sam Potter, who trained under Philip Johnston of Ecco and also worked at Coast in Hervey Bay, will be operating the kitchen at Seven South.

“Sam is talented and passionate about food – he worked with us at Home Café, so we know he will do an outstanding job,” said Kylie.

“We are also very lucky to have many other previous staff come across to work with us again, they share the same passion as we do for great food, excellent coffee and personal service.”

Seven South is located at 92 Hyde Road, Yeronga and is open 7 days a week from 6:30am.

Trading Hours:
Monday – Wednesday from 6:30am until 3:30pm.
Thursday – Saturday from 6:30am until late.
Sunday 6:30am – 4:00pm.
