Hydrant Food Hall

Restaurant and Cafe

Hydrant Food Hall is situated in a heritage warehouse within the CBD of Ballarat, an easy seven minute walk from the train station.

Tucked away in the nook of McKenzie Street, the large open space boasts natural light and a relaxed vibe suited for every season with a wood fire and air conditioning.

The innovative, seasonal menu at Hydrant Food Hall features inspiring dishes that are not just your typical breakfast and lunch. The menu showcases local flavours and produce, sourced from the region alongside the deliciously bold Seven Seeds coffee from Melbourne and Grounded Pleasures products from Ballarat.

Immerse yourself in a piece of Ballarat history, admire the restoration of the building from the early 50’s, including the original sprinkler system which is on display. With easy access for prams and wheelchairs, everyone can come in and enjoy the relaxed vibe, great coffee and delicious food.
