What is Workshop Rockhampton?
Workshop Rockhampton opened in January 2015 with the aim of giving Rocky locals cheap eats, cool workshops and creative experiences.
We have a Coffee & Crêpe Bar on East St where you can enjoy the best coffee in town with a delicious sweet or savoury crêpe all day long.
After dark, our secret warehouse comes alive! Every Friday & Saturday night the Workshop Bar is open with streetfood, Qld craft beers and unique cocktails.
Every month, community members and groups share what they love and teach what they know. Workshops and classes held here weekly from art to dancing! Check out What's On for happenings.
Since opening we have served up fun events, live music, Art Battles and exhibitions. There is always something going on, so check out our Facebook page regularly for news.
We are a small family business- entirely self funded. We take courage in the support of our amazing staff and customers.

Good to Know....
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 in our warehouse. 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...

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.

We are a haven for families! Kids love our yummy crepes and shakes. Children are allowed in the warehouse bar area until 8.30pm. 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?
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 (07) 49 22 8731 or 0404 053 439 after hours.
