Not your usual Take Away & Delivery Cafe in Coburg

“This is the kind of food you want to eat”

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 iconic Coburg café is now family owned, and the thoughtful restoration using many of the original features creates a warm and welcoming space nestled under the guard tower and looming walls of the prison.

The Boot Factory is famous for its hand made, much loved food. Dishes are transformed by our team of classically trained chefs using only the best ingredients.

We are delighted to offer our All Day Menu for take away, online order pick up, and delivery! And as of Wednesday 3 June, we’ll be able to invite you in for seated dining again, albeit under restrictions. Check out our socials for more info on this or book now!

The experience was superb. Food was great, coffee was perfect, and the friendly service was just immaculate! Pity I live rather far, otherwise I definitely be a regular. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a gorgeous cafe in Coburg!

The Boot Factory should be a go to cafe for anyone living in the North! I have been to the Boot Factory multiple times and I cannot fault it.
