Pablo – Opening Soon
In big news for New Farm’s brunch-loving community, famed institution cafe Pablo will be returning to the suburb in October. Yes, you read that correctly – Amy and Michael Bates will be bringing the sorely missed concept back to the area, this time taking up residency in the old Escobar space on the corner of James Street and Merthyr Road. Along with new business partner Angela White, the crew will soon get started on overhauling the venue (which has housed plant-based eatery Ginger & Rose since June 2018), enhancing the building’s Queenslander aesthetic and making the most out of the extra space by adding plenty of greenery and work from local artists. Mike will be in the kitchen once more, whipping up a new menu that champions local ingredients (some old favourites might also make an appearance) alongside a range of home-baked goodies and Genovese coffee. Extra details will be revealed closer to launch, but we’ve been told to expect the same cheeky (but professional) service, fun vibes and humble approach to top-notch nosh.
