Great coffee in industrial areas seems to be a thing in our region. Take Pickers Union Geelong as an example. Located at 3 Mackey Street, it’s set to a backdrop of North Geelong’s usual hi-vis vests, trucks moving stock in and out of Geelong Port and surrounding factories, and the (now beautiful) old Geelong Power Station. Yet from inside you’d barely know it.
Still, Pickers Union Geelong fits the area well. It’s walls are lined with paint-stained hardwood floorboards and it’s shelves filled with art deco tea paraphernalia. The staff are friendly, and the kitchen sports a good selection of delicious cakes, wraps and salad.
If you’re a vintage fan, the real gem here isn’t the cafe itself but what it’s attached to. In fact you might want to order takeaway so that you don’t scold yourself throwing back a hot drink as the temptation of the Geelong Vintage Markets takes over.
Overall this is a well established cafe with plenty in the areas to keep you entertained. Although it’s busy throughout the week, we’d say it’s best enjoyed on a weekend or a day when you have enough time to mill about in the neighbouring shops, the Geelong Vintage Markets, and the old Geelong Power Station. Enjoy!
