The Workshop by day...

The Workshop Coffee & Crêpe Bar on East St is open for breakfast and lunch 7 days, serving delicious sweet and savoury crepes, a full cabinet of cakes and savoury bakes. Our coffee is well known for its full flavoured 21gram shot of specialty-roasted goodness. There are always gluten free and vegan options, with all items made fresh in-house.  We source our ingredients ethically, our coffee cups are biodegradable and all food waste is composted on a nearby farm. Come and say hello to Lewis, Frank, Lily, Lenny and Scott!

The Workshop by night...

After dark, walk through the cafe and discover Millroy's Warehouse. Every Friday night we host East Street Market: Rocky's original family-friendly Streetfood destination.  The licenced bar serves craft beers and unique cocktails and mocktails.  On Saturday nights we host events, functions, concerts, outdoor movies, and more!  Check out News for happenings.  Why not hold your next event in this unique space? Contact Vanessa with your idea on 0404 053 439.

Since opening we have dished up a whole lotta happy, and we will continue to do so in 2017.  Keep in touch on Facebook - we love to hear from you!

Workshop Rockhampton is a small business- entirely self funded. We take courage in the support of our amazing staff and customers.

Good to Know.... 

Weather Happens!

Workshop Rockhampton operates in all weather (just like any other restaurant)  We don't let a little drizzle stop the fun. There is plenty of seating under cover.  If in doubt, bring a brolly! In case of severe weather, check this website or our Facebook page. 

We are Licensed

Alcohol is sold from the Warehouse bar. Alcohol can be taken into the courtyard but not the unlicensed café. Children under 18 must be supervised by an adult at all times in licensed areas. Sorry, no BYO. Non-alcoholic drinks are available from the Coffee Bar.

Where can I smoke?

Did you know that smoking is not allowed in an eating and drinking area- even when no-one is eating at the time?  It's true! So there is NO smoking in the courtyard- it's the law.  Desperate? Quay Lane and East St are a short walk away. Think of it as an adventure...

Are we Gluten Free/ Vegan friendly?

There are options available for you! The Workshop Coffee Bar serves gluten-free cakes, galettes & waffles.  Please note that all food is prepared on the same equipment, not suitable for Coeliacs. 

Where the heck are you?

We are located at 45 East St Rockhampton, opposite the Courthouse. Walk through our Coffee Bar and find the Warehouse. The Warehouse is open Friday and Saturday nights.

Are you child friendly?

We are a haven for families!  Kids love our yummy crepes and shakes.  Children are welcome in the warehouse bar area until 9.00pm.  Kids can go nuts and cut loose here (so can you!)  There is a table for changing in the unisex/ disabled toilet.

Can I book a table on Friday nights?

Reservations can be made for groups of 20 or more. We will require a $250 deposit to secure your space, which becomes your bar tab.  (ie there are no fees to hire the space).  Bookings can be made on 0404 053 439.

Table Service & Table Manners

On Friday & Saturday nights our staff collect your empty glasses but ask that you place disposable plates/cutlery from the streetfood vendors in the bins provided. At other events at the Workshop, there is full table service.

Can we hire the Workshop for a private function?

We love hosting weddings on Sundays, and the warehouse is available for conferences, meetings and get-togethers.  Exclusive hire of the facility from just $360. Contact the team for details on 0474 852 867.

Can I bring my dog?

Well behaved pooches can socialize and enjoy your company in the courtyard. Sundays are Dog Days Out, when they will be treated to a free puppy-chino (with purchase). Please keep your beloveds leashed eh?
