Set in the grounds of  Pentridge Prison, Coburg, The Boot Factory café is steeped in history.

The building dates back to the 1850s, where it was once part of the Coburg Penitentiary where well behaved prisoners worked making shoes & boots for the prison guards.

Our iconic Pentridge Quarter Master’s building is now a family owned café; the thoughtful restoration using many of the original features creates a warm, eclectic space nestled below the looming guard tower and chimney stack of days gone by.

Our philosophy at The Boot Factory honours seasonal changes, sustainable produce and local suppliers.

Good healthy fresh food, staff excellent and flexible with menu. Atmosphere special. Setting and surrounds historical and interesting.

The service is second to none. Coffee is nice & smooth, also comes out really quick and the menu caters for all. My favourite is the Eggs Benny. Location & street parking is readily accessible.


SUPERB. I have been a fan of this establishment for many years and have always highly recommended this place to friends and family. The food is creative and has wonderful flavour combinations. The chef can do no wrong - the food is always delicious and to the highest of standards. The decor is quirky and trendy. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Overall, frequenting The Boot Factory is always a pleasant and positive experience.

Make mine a matcha 🍵

We've got matcha and golden lattes here at The Boot, and a decent range of alternative mylks for you to choose from: Bonsoy, Milk Lab Almond, Califia Farms Oat, and Zymil Lactose Free.

We love coffee but we love options more! 😁
