All day breakfasts dominate the list of the most popular ways to attack The Servery’s thoroughgoing take on Melbourne’s cafe culture, while at night the cafe transforms into a pizzeria, restaurant and tapas bar that’s hugely popular among locals to Glen Huntly, in the city’s southeast. Book in for Tuesdays and enjoy half-price pizzas, burgers and parma for just a tenner Wednesdays and Thursday respectively, while (thank goodness) Fridays are five buck beer nights. The Servery has another outpost in West Melbourne, but like its sister venue, the Glen Huntly outlet is set along Royal Lane away from the noise of the main road and charmingly decorated, making for a relaxed atmosphere.
Serving up modern Australian cuisine, pizza, tapas, cocktails, sangria and more to the good folk of Melbourne’s Glen Huntly, The Servery covers so many bases you’d think they’d fold under the pressure. Not this cafe, restaurant and bar. Locals to the area pack out The Servery East’s Royal Avenue premises (there’s another Servery in West Melbourne) every morning for their fix of avo on toast or panini, while the lunchtime crowds tuck into Italian pasta and risotto, burgers and classic Aussie mains like chicken parmigiana, fish and chips and mixed kebab platters.
Come the evening, The Servery’s outstanding tapas menu comes into its own, with arancini, chorizo bombas, halloumi tacos and larger share plates of calamari, prawns, nachos and popcorn chicken forming the perfect counterpoint to Hills cider, Stella, Asahi and Coopers beer, bubbles and plenty of fine Australasian and international wines. Wherever you are in Melbourne, it’s not hard to get down to The Servery’s Glen Huntly restaurant and bar – it’s right across from the station – so simply book online and get served.
Yum! This place is a gem in Glen Huntly. It’s got great ambiance. We will be back to try the breakfast fare someday soon. They weren’t informed of my quandoo reservation though. Luckily we came on a quiet night.
Extensive range of food. The food was very tasty. Although very busy for lunch, the service was prompt and efficient. Excellent buzzing and relaxing atmosphere in the restaurant.
Whilst dining experience was good, being older persons it was extremely difficult to read the menu especially at night I.e. black print on brown paper. Much easier when black/white menus were provided.
The food was delicious as usually. The service was friendly but a little slow. The courtyard could have used a clean as there were ashtrays overflowing on the tables.
The Servery is a nice local (Glen Huntly) cafe. With it's bare red brick walls, industrial overhead baton lighting, timber tables, serves comfort food such as pizza, pasta, and more at an affordable price. It also sells alcohol too. It's sweet menu could use a face lift, upgrade. It's a warm unpretentious place, where locals come to dine. It also has a Take Away, delivery service. It's a great place for both a quick bite or a function.
Location and ambience is good, nice outdoor area but food quality seemed to have deteriorated a little. The chicken Parma's chips were slightly overcooked and the seafood linguine's seafood were tiny shrimps and mussels. I remeber them to be pretty good so would give it another go... Also, online menu seem to be different...
