Imaginative menu, lovely setting

Lunch in this delightful cafe at the rear of the Bendigo Art Gallery was a treat. Our table overlooked Bendigo's Rosalind Park, a riot of autumn colour on a dull day. The menu was imaginative. The food was impressive. My husband declared his pork sauges and mash superlative. My vegetable stack was... read more

Had the fruit toast and a soy latte for brekky. Fruit toast was great, the jam on the side was really tasty - two slices were surprisingly filling. The coffee was disappointing. I am a snob when it comes to latte's so perhaps I am a harsh critic. Service was great and the staff were friendly. Just work of those... More

The menu is diverse but caters for all tastes. Fresh, local produce and wines. Very reasonable prices & staff always friendly. Even when it's busy, staff will try everything to get you seated. Must go!

We came to the Gallery café while waiting for the Easter Parade. The wait staff were very friendly and added to the festive occasion. We both enjoyed great meals that had been freshly prepared. The Gallery café continues to satisfy the palate and the pocket.

When visiting BENDIGO's internationally renowned Art Gallery, make sur you have time to relax in the Gallery cafe out the back overlooking BENDIGO's beautiful Rosiland park. You will also be in view of the Art Galleries beautiful marble statues in the glassed walkway as you make your way to sumptuous cakes, and cafe styled fare.

Our food & wine appreciation group had a magnificent meal from Chef Renzo last night - beautifully conceived, prepared and presented menu spoilt only by the persistently harsh acoustics of a hard-surfaced modern space. Some soft furnishings, drapes etc would do wonders in so many of our modern public eating places.

The Gallery Cafe is the best in Bendigo by far, how can I state this! my wife and I eat there on a very regular basis either b/ fast or lunch. The owner Lorenzo is the chef and does all the prep and cooking and produces the food to an extremely high standard. The cafe does get very busy when... More
