Festival Food

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and open from 8.30am–8pm, Thursday–Sunday at the Festival Hub.

Whether you’re popping in for a single session or settling in for a full day of sessions – it’s not just your minds that are in for some serious nourishment at the Festival. 


First things first: freshly roasted coffee. We’re serving Little Marionette coffee throughout the Festival Precinct – stop by Coffee Corner for the caffeine fix you need before those early morning sessions or enjoy your brew at our new Festival Hub in Bay 25. And grab a pastry from Sonoma Bakery while you’re there!

Little Marionette’s coffee cups are 100% plastic-free, recyclable and compostable – just pop them in one of our recyling bins when you’re done. Or why not bring a reusable coffee cup? 


To help you stay hydrated throughout the day, we have water stations at Carriageworks where you can refill your water bottle. 


In addition to The Bakery, the Precinct has a wide array of pop-up eateries, providing everything you need for sustenance between sessions.

If you are on the go, you can grab sandwiches and wraps from the Corner Cafe. 

The Food Truck Park introduces COVID Safe outdoor dining to the Festival. Fuel up for your next session with scrumptious selections from Agape Organic Foods, Bar Positano and Greek Street Food Truck –  and on Saturday on Sunday, Ryan Gourmet Gozleme.   

Need to cool down from all the literary excitement? Along Carriageworks Way you’ll find Mr Goaty Gelato for a little sweetness between sessions! 

From the Bar

For your afternoon tipple, take your pick from one of the many Festival bars around the Precinct. 

A range of Bunnamagoo Estate Wines, bespoke gin cocktails from boutique distillery Archie Rose and beer from Atomic will be available.

And for a booze-free beverage, enjoy the non-alcoholic concoctions from Seadrift.
