    Barkers Cafe opens at Whitten Oval

    The Western Bulldogs this week opened the doors to the brand new Barkers Café – a fresh, new look eatery and meeting place for all of our members, fans and our local community.

    Located at Victoria University Whitten Oval, the new Café has had an exciting facelift, keeping the Club’s community feel while injecting a new look and feel and menu.

    MENU: View the new Barkers Café menu

    The perfect place to grab a top notch coffee, enjoy a Bulldogs Big Breakfast or a range of healthy, delicious meals or snacks - Barkers Café aims to become the eatery of choice for our players and staff and the wider Bulldog community.

    The move comes after previous owners of the Pound Café decided to sell the business.

    This resulted in the creation of Barkers Café delivered by Letsbark Pty Ltd, a company owned by Kerri O’Toole and Terri Montgomery – who you may also know as the wives of Bulldogs President Peter Gordon and Bulldogs Senior Assistant Coach, Brett Montgomery.

    In a fantastic act of generosity to the Club, Kerri with Peter have decided to donate their share of profits from the business venture back to the Bulldogs.

    So get on down to Barkers - we hope you enjoy the new Café and we welcome your feedback on what we hope will be your meeting place of choice in the west.


    OPENING HOURS:

    Weekdays: 8:00am - 4:00pm
    Saturday: 9:00am - 2:00pm
    Sunday: Closed

    Good on Peter & Kerri. You are a champ Pete.

    Sounds great. Once I get my licence soon and more and more experience in my driving I really need to drive out to Footscray and check out the Whitten Oval someday.

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Wow, Peter Gordon putting his hand in his pocket... Just for something different!

    There's a good opportunity for the café, Footscray home games offer an additional revenue source the didn't exist 2 years ago. Some smart decisions could make it a real money spinner. Good luck to the two ladies.

    Not sure the internet could deal with the amount of bulldogs colours seen that day. Would be epic.

    Apparently the home games the club makes around $20 g profit . So with an ATM actually working and the cafe selling proper food it might double! :-)
    Next year we get 8 games maybe 9 at Whitten Oval.
    I have been to everyone this year absolutely love it, can't wait for next season in this regard.
    Bring back the biff

    ATM such a major issue, wonder if they can organize mobile ATM's for home games next season?

    Had a meeting down at Ashley st this morning which finished around lunchtime, so dropped into Barkers for some lunch. I must say they do a pretty good job compared to previous offering.

    I recommend if you are in the area to drop in and it also helps the club. They will be a bit busy tomorrow though.
