Where there are kids, food should not be far away. So, feel free to head to The Garden Pantry to refuel and enjoy mouth-watering food from three of Brisbane’s popular restaurants: Salt Meats Cheese, Cheeky Poke Bar, and Mr Bunz.

The Garden Pantry is where one will find al fresco dining, tropical-inspired indoor dining, and grab-and-go options while enjoying the Light Garden by Luxxbox — an interactive display of 2500 light reeds scattered around and lighting up the parkland at night.

Salt Meats Cheese

Salt Meats Cheese, or SMC, is an Italian eatery serving fully plant-based vegan and vegetarian wood fired pizza with cured meats as adds-ons. SMC will also feature a botanical cocktail bar made extra special with hand made infusions and ingredients from Australian native herbs. Lastly, Fresh coffee, roasted and served daily via their new business, “The Laneway Coffee Roasters by SMC”.
