Hey, what do you know, apparently Cafe Scheherezade in St Kilda is closing down. What the hell!
For 50 years, it's been the cafe of 1,001 stories. A home away from home for many East European refugees, Cafe Scheherazade in St Kilda is closing its doors after a long dispute between the original owners and the new operators.
Their coleslaw was horrible, but their borscht was excellent. They served huge meals. Once I saw my brother eat a huge duck*, all by himself. He "offered" to let me have some at several points, but I was just agog at the sheer amount he'd already put down his stomach.
By the way, you don't have to bother reading the rest of that ABC report. The only real news you'll get is that there's been a 'dispute' betwen owners and operators. The rest is just atmospherics (Cue the imitation Klezmer music! Cue the name dropping! Cue the references to St Kilda landmarks!)
*Sorry to have to break this news on Duck Friday, but there it is.
