Food markets and events

Multicultural foodie events are where the City of Logan really shines. 

Global Food Village

Every Sunday from 6am to 12pm the Global Food Village markets pop up at the Woodridge Train Station. The market hosts a range of stalls peddling breakfast foods from Europe, Africa and Asia, plus fresh produce from the region.

Another city food event, Eats & Beats, kicks on into the night with an army of food trucks and food stalls popping up at different locations every month. Check for the date and location online, and bring cash to buy dinner at this free food-fest for all ages.

City of Logan’s top cafes

It started as a market stall at the Global Food Village before turning into a bricks and mortar cafe. Grandma’s Kiwi Kitchen has brought the best of New Zealand to the city – including lolly cake. Stop by for all your Kiwi favourites such as battered mussels and paua fritters.

Better known for its specialty coffee, the aptly named Wake Me Up in Slacks Creek serves a killer Spanish omelette and other gourmet fare. Follow this up with a visit to Sooo Sweet, a popular Mediterranean bakery and cafe that specialises in Lebanese sweets and pastries.

The Pantry HQ in Springwood has it all. From breakfast and lunch, to high tea and catering – you can dine in or pick up provisions to go. Best of all, the charming venue is BYO and doesn’t charge corkage.

Another Springwood favourite, Café Mio is a hidden-away cosy spot with an Italian influence. Meanwhile, CG’s Coffee & Grub in Bethania keeps locals happy with a classic cafe breakfast and lunch menu. Lovers of sweet things will feel right at home at the arty Belgian Chocolate Saloon in Beenleigh – Nutella pancakes anyone?

Where to get specialty coffee

Simply Beans

Coffee is life – and finding a good cup is essential. Head straight to the source at local boutique roaster Simply Beans in Underwood, try top-rated Wake Me Up for a sure-fire kick, or in Shailer Park Shorties Espresso does it best. Beenleigh has two favourites – Luv-A-Coffee and the Belgian Chocolate Saloon.

Casual dining

A multicultural city indeed, Logan is home to stacks of casual restaurants offering different cuisines.

Top of the list is Midnight Blue, a restaurant in Springwood with an Italian-born, French-trained, experienced chef. Best of all, this is fine dining food without the pricetag. The Italian menu features everyone’s favourites – be sure to save room for tiramisu.

For a Japanese style barbecue, Shinbashi Yakiniku is a family favourite in Underwood. Grill meat, seafood and vegetables in typical Japanese style or if you're a hungry human, opt for the all-you-can-eat menu with a range of rice and noodle dishes and entrees and sides.

Christopher's Fine Food
Christopher's Fine Foods

A fully licensed, a la carte cafe and restaurant at Daisy Hill, Christopher's Fine Foods has more than 26 years' experience serving Brisbane the finest wines, tapas and gourmet homemade dishes. Pop in for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days.

Taste America at Texas Wild Wings in Springwood. This pizzeria and wings house serves the best from the west including jalapeno poppers, cheese sticks, waffle fries and wings with 14 different sauces or dry rubs.

For excellent Indian cuisine, try Randhawa’s Indian Cuisine, Tumeric Indian, and Lemon and Chillies. For Thai food, locals love Baan Thai. And for something completely different, ZamZam in Slacks Creek serves delicious Pakistani and Afghani cuisine.

Takeaways and super casual eats

Any car journey from Brisbane to the Gold Coast wouldn’t be complete without a pitstop at Yatala Pies. The humble pie shop has been there for more than 130 years, becoming an always busy landmark.

Burger lovers can get their fix at Miss Kay's in Springwood or Burger Bro? in Browns Plains. Those craving Mexican should stop by Serranos Mexican Cantina in Beenleigh for oven baked burritos, fajitas and fresh tacos. 

Ikea

And, of course, Logan is the location of Brisbane’s southern IKEA  – no trip to the furniture megastore is complete without a plate of the Swedish meatballs.
