First, Brent Farrell wowed Brisbane with his fine dining establishment. Then, he revamped the acclaimed inner-west restaurant, turning it into a casual eatery. Come January 2016, he's heading over to the south side of town to launch a brand new venture: Slack's Track Cafe.
If you've ever enjoyed a meal at Toowong's 85 Miskin Street (or Brent's – The Dining Experience before it) — or tucked into their famed brekkie degustation — you'll know that this is good news. Think the same culinary mastery Farrell has been showcasing for more than a decade, largely focused on an a la carte breakfast and lunch menu, and served up in an even more relaxed environment on Logan Road.
Yes, daytime delights will be the main attraction, though that's not all that'll be on offer. To the glee of sugar fiends in the vicinity of Mt Gravatt, Brent's winning ways with homemade sweets and desserts will also feature. Plus, once the eatery obtains a liquor license, there's talk of opening on Friday and/or Saturday evenings with a focus on a fixed-price, multi-course selection.
Slack's Track Cafe won't just follow in 85 Miskin Street's footsteps when it comes to food, with its name also keeping on trend. You might not recognise the reference; however Logan Road was originally known as Slack's Track, with farmer William Slack moving his cattle through the area. Now, its namesake dining spot will move its mouthwatering morsels into your mouth.
Find Slack's Track Cafe at 1293 Logan Road, Mt Gravatt from January 2016. For more information, check out their Facebook page and Instagram feed.
