AFL is finally back

April 3, 2017

Here at the Wharf Shed Café we take footy seriously. While some of us participate in our in-house weekly tipping competition and wear our team guernseys on occasion, others aren’t so invested in the sport, admitting they are even impartial to the outcome of the Grand Final… ludicrous, I know. But majority of the staff...

March 8, 2017

So it turns out that cocktails date back to the beginning 19th century. The definition of a ‘cocktail’ first appeared in The Balance and Columbian Repository (Hudson, New York) May 13, 1806; the question, “what is a cocktail” was put to editor Harry Croswell and he answered: “Cock-tail is a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits...

February 1, 2017

With the school holidays over and having to get into the real swing of 2017, nights off have become all the more valuable. Whilst summer is still here and the sun is happily sticking around to all hours of the evening, what better use of your precious Friday nights than to make your way down...

We’re bringing breaky back!

December 3, 2016

The sun has finally decided to come out of hibernation, so Wharf Shed breakfast is back on! We’ve spent the cooler months revamping the breakfast menu. Don’t worry – the old favourites are still there – but we’ve added a few new items to the list. Our smoked salmon bagel with poached eggs, cream cheese,...

Work @ Wharf Shed

August 31, 2016

There’s an old Latin phrase that our boss likes to use: “In vino veritas”. Roughly translated, it means “in wine, truth”. Whilst nobody can argue with that one, we at the Wharf Shed have few more truth bombs: ‘In weather, customers’; and consequently: ‘in customers, an overwhelming need for more staff’. Over September/October, we will...

Sorry early-birds…

July 13, 2016

Winter is well and truly here! Thanks to the cold weather, especially down by the water, we’ve decided to revise our offerings a little. Our breakfast menu will now only be available from December to April (a.k.a. when the weather’s nice enough to want to get out of bed before midday). So, we at the...

Winter Menu!

May 10, 2016

We’ve just launched our Winter menu! The cold weather is already here so the heaters are on, we’ve cosy’d the place up and we’re changing a few things on the menu. We’ve kept old favourites like the Chicken Parmigiana and the Salt & Pepper Calamari, but we’ve also added in a few weather-appropriate comfort food...

Geelong’s (slowly) evolving love of beer.

February 3, 2016

“Pot of heavy, thanks.” That request used to get you exactly what you wanted: a pot of cold, full-strength beer from a tap (and it probably cost you $1.50 once upon a time too). In recent years, the mainstream lager quaffing pub goer has had to continually learn to refine their order. As a hospitality...
