Review of The Boot Factory

The Boot Factory
Ranked #2 of 136 Restaurants in Coburg
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Australian
Description: 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 and freshest ingredients. Suitable for breakfast, lunch, 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.

Hi Liliane H,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - we're glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and our menu! We understand it gets noisy in here, especially when we are busy (which is to say, almost always!). We're looking at ways to reduce the noise which don't cost an arm and a leg, so hopefully in the near future we can fix this issue.

Thanks again for your feedback,every comment is helpful to us =D

I've been many times, and am happy with my meal every time. The sizes may be abit lacking, but that is made up for in quality and taste. The coffee is nice and location is good.
