A unique cafe in Coburg
Set in the grounds of Pentridge Prison, Coburg, The Boot Factory café is steeped in history. The building dates back to the 1850s, it was once part of the Coburg penitentiary where well behaved prisoners worked making shoes & boots for the prison guards.
The Coburg café is now family owned and the restoration has used all of the original features, the setting is an iconic space that looks over the guards tower and the looming walls of the prison.
The Boot Factory is famous for its hand made and home loved food. Dishes are transformed by the brigade of classically trained chefs using only the best ingredients and time honoured traditions making pastries and baking bread.
Suitable for breakfast, lunch, dinner, parties & more formal occasions, the interior has been sensitively decorated to create an atmosphere that is second to none, lounge away with a coffee on the comfortable chairs looking over the terrace or take a communal table and dine with the whole family. Children also love the atmosphere in the café and its noticeable that the babies just seem to settle in to the environment without so much as a cry.
