We have a hole in our heart the size of a slow cooked steak with onion rings.

Adelaide’s two Hog’s Breath Cafes both closed down suddenly this week with reports surfacing that they had gone into liquidation.

Both the Glenelg and Holden Hill restaurants posted statements on their Facebook pages on Tuesday saying they were ‘temporarily closed’.

Diners with bookings for the restaurants said they were called in the morning to say their booking was cancelled as they had gone into liquidation.

But perhaps the most concerning of comments came from staff who had been told they lost their job.

Jordy Caridi wrote: “Because the previous owner is extremely incompetent, so many people are now struggling with how there (sic) going to pay rent, buy groceries and even feed their kids myself included because of this man and we only found out that we were unemployed no more than six hours ago.”


The Advertiser has reported that there is a ”genuine glimmer of hope” of reopening according to liquidator Andrew Heard.
