Footscray & West Footscray

Footscray and it's nearby neighbour, West Footscray, have evolved into a worldly food destinations. Sitting side by side with diverse cuisines from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East are offerings from a new-wave cafe and bar scene where hip venues are popping up alongside the traditional eateries that have become icons of the inner west.

There is a restaurant here to suit every taste. Try House of Injera or Jambo for Ethiopian, Aangan or Dosa Hut for Indian, 8bit or Chip's Loft for burgers, Thien An or Sapa Hills for Vietnamese, Jimmy Wong or MC Dumpling for Chinese, Phat Chicks for fried chicken, Up in Smoke for American BBQ, Fox in the Corn for specialty pasta, Harley and Rose for wood-fried pizza, or the Victoria Hotel for delicious pub grub.

If it's a cafe you're after, there's also plenty here to satisfy your cravings. Try Brother Nancy and Pod Cafe in West Footscray and Rudimentary, Small Graces and the Milking Station in Footscray, to name but a few.

When it comes to quenching your thirst, Footscray has you covered. Sample a locally-brewed beer at Hop Nation Brewing Co. or enjoy an intimate and cosy night out at The Night Heron, Littlefoot, Small French Bar or Back Alley Sally’s. If you're up for something more lively, catch the live performances at Pride of our Footscray or check out one of Australia's best specialty beer venues, Mr West, which stocks 24+ beers and ciders on tap as well as an impressive cocktail list.
