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 hyper diverse menu draws on the wealth of talent in our kitchen. We’ve worked hard to create a menu to delight everyone; whether you have vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or kid-friendly needs, we’ve got you covered! Check out The Boot Factory on Insta for a peek at what we offer.
We’re carving out a niche in the Northside meal delivery market, serving our fellow Morelanders a full restaurant spread in the comfort of their own homes.
We’ve partnered with Mr Yum to offer delivery. Ordering your delivery via Mr Yum helps us keep fees low and supports our small business directly! You can also find us on Uber Eats and DoorDash.
Good healthy fresh food, staff excellent and flexible with menu. Atmosphere special. Setting and surrounds historical and interesting.Debra McIntyre-Hall
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.RDM
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.Lucia Soriani
