The Boatshed at Woronora
After nearly ten years of being open 7 days a week, we have finally decided that our time here is coming to a close and we’re looking forward to some form of retirement. A few weeks ago we reduced the menu and trading hours. From Wednesday 28th August The Boatshed will become more of a coffee shop than cafe, still serving our homemade scones and cakes but without the cook-to-order element.
Boat hire will continue - Wednesday- Sunday 9am - 4pm, to be reviewed at the end of school term 3.
We have appreciated the fantastic support The Boatshed has received from both the local community and those from further afield and recognise that many will be disappointed with this change, especially so close to Fathers’ Day. However, it is precisely our desire not to disappoint our customers that has prompted us to rethink our approach. Bigger is not always better.
We would like to acknowledge the huge role our young staff have played in contributing to the growth of the Boatshed over the last 10 years. With limited experience, no formal training and only basic equipment, they have responded to the many challenges with enthusiasm and great teamwork, led by our cafe managers over the years; Tracey, Yasmine and Chelsea.
Thank you for your support and the many good wishes so many of you have already expressed.

Whilst we are dog-friendly, NSW Food Safety requirements are that dogs are on a lead and not in the covered area. However, having a dog does not guarantee you an outside table and we suggest you ring beforehand to see if we can accommodate you.
We are also child-friendly and as well as a kids menu we offer toys and games to keep them amused. However, we do ask that for the enjoyment of other patrons on busy days you sit in the area your child is playing. If you wish to sit outside, bring a book or puzzle to the table; if they want to play in the toy-kitchen area, please sit near the back to supervise age-appropriate play. Complimentary puzzle pages are offered on busy days when meals may take longer to arrive. Activity bags and puzzle pages are available for a nominal charge at any time.
