The Artist Cafe & Gallery


The Artist Cafe & Manach Gallery is a surprising green oasis in Brisbane's northern suburbs. Mitchelton's historic Salvation Army Church has been transformed into a spacious cafe, art gallery and eclectic function space with original artworks spread throughout the venue ranging from full length canvases to other mixed media pieces.

The garden features a large outdoor seating area with statues and bird baths dotted beneath shady palm trees. Part training centre for budding hospitality students, lunch at the cafe includes fresh salads as well as a range of wraps and toasted sandwiches.
