With its reputation for excellent customer service, delectable food and friendly staff, the restaurant has become a staple in the community since swinging open its bright doors back in December last year. 

Uptown also stock a range of sweets from Melbourne-based Ribbons and Bows Cakes and use the beans from Geelong’s very own Cartel Roasters for all their coffees. If you’re not sold on that, then they even have a lunch deal featuring a regular coffee paired with a bagel, croissant or toastie for only $15. 

Additionally, Uptown Geelong has plans to open up a cocktail bar which will provide the perfect setting for Friday night drinks with colleagues or friends. We’ll keep you updated on this one! 

From their locally sourced food and coffee to our indulgent speciality coffee, Uptown breathes new life into the world of cafes in Geelong.

Open Monday – Sunday 8-3:30, Uptown Cafe is located at 316B Pakington Street, Newtown.
