The restaurant chain shared the news on its social media.

“Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and Karen can’t stay forever,” it said.

“Today marks the closing of some of our Australian pop-up stores.

“If your local pop-up store has closed, there will be a Karen’s Diner On Tour coming to your city this September.

“Karen can’t stay away and needs to give you a piece of her mind.”

The restaurant’s namesake was drawn from the notorious ‘Karen’ stereotype of people who are rude to hospitality and retail staff.

“We pride ourselves on having the worst service in the world,” the restaurant’s social media bio reads.

Karen’s Diner has been forced to make a number of apologies to customers over the years, after the staff were accused of taking the gimmick too far.
