When you think of Melbourne, it’s highly likely that the first things that come to mind are coffee and delicious food as this vast city is a mecca for foodies and caffeine connoisseurs looking for the next best thing. The Boot Factory is one such addition to the café scene with a philosophy centred on seasonal changes, local suppliers and sustainable produce – what’s more to love. Located in perhaps the most unusual of spaces, in the heart of Coburg The Boot Factory calls the grounds of Pentridge Prison home. With history seeping through its walls, baristas that for some coffee aficionados are god-like, and a team in the kitchen producing a wholesome, creative and strictly seasonal menu, there is no better place to add to the list than The Boot Factory on Pentridge Road. Just be sure to book to secure your spot.
Had breakfas in a very warm environment. Everyone was courteous and friendly. Everything ordered was excellent. Even with mothers day, all staff were smiling despite the enormous pressure to serve early in the morning. A cafe amongst history surrounds Highly recommended.
It was a good experience. The table was set up for us and the chairs were comfortable. The service was excellent and the coffee was also good.

I had actually searched online for a wonderful cafe with vegan dessert near me and the Boot factory came up on the search. It was a great idea to have checked out the place because not only did it have a homely and cosy feel about it, the food was amazing! My friend and I truly had a beautiful afternoon and although we were worried that we would be hurried to finish our meal, we were assured by the staff who was very warm and definitely down-to-earth. I am looking forward to coming back to the Boot Factory again!
The Boot Factory provides good food in comfortable surroundings with great service. I had a group of eight people who thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the quirky, comfortable decor. I will definitely return to The Boot Factory.
We really enjoy the atmosphere at The Boot Factory. It is cozy, welcoming and a great place for brunch. The coffee is excellent, the food great and the service is friendly.
I just don’t see the point in waitstaff not having a pen and paper to take down orders.This makes me even more frustrated when it results in getting our order wrong! It never impress’ me, it just concerns me, especially with a table of 5 people and all have special requests. However the staff were nice and did also accommodate a change in tables when an extra friend joined us at the last minute to give us more room, which was lovely! Food was good, however on the smaller side (1 egg on most dishes) If I was in the area I’d go back, but probably wouldn’t go out of my way to head back without a reason.
The Boot Factory is a fantastic family friendly café and venue. The owner happily accommodated our reservation and requests, and the service and food were fantastic.
The food was amazing for the adults, very creative, beautifully presented and very tasty, but not really a child friendly place. The staff seemed very stressed when we went there for a mothers day breakfast. Our kids (10 and 12 year old) found the menu option very limiting for their tastes, and they were very disappointed with the small sized milkshakes. A great place to catch up with the girls for a coffee and chat.
