Karen’s Diner 

There’s another themed pop-up coming to Victoria this March and asking for the manager could be a bad idea.

Home to great burgers and rude service, Karen’s Diner is coming to the Sonara Bar and Grill this March.

Originally launched in restaurants and stores across Australia and the UK, the OG Karens have embarked on a world tour, dishing out ungrateful service in the land of people that say sorry far too often.

For those looking to be treated to the nines, think again. Customers can expect plenty of sass, delicious food and a hefty sprinkle of attitude from their server.

Tickets for this sassy night out cost $45 and include burgers, fries, soda and an authentic Karen experience.

Don’t miss out on great food but awful service!
