A robbery at a sushi train restaurant in Adelaide was derailed by customers of an all-night bakery nearby, police say.

Customers at North Adelaide's Bakery On O'Connell called police when they heard smashing glass across the road about 4.30am on Saturday.

Police arrived to find the front door of Katana Sushi Train had been smashed with a brick and the cash till had been stolen.

A man was found behind the restaurant who fitted the description given by witnesses and he was arrested.

The 41-year-old Elizabeth man was charged with theft, property damage and serious criminal trespass.

He is expected to be refused bail and is due to face court on Tuesday.
