Pleasant eating place with reasonable food. A little on the pricey side for what it is. Great staff always cheerful when we have visited

What a pleasant place to have a coffee and cake or even a meal. Beautiful outlook onto the Rosalind park. So before/after your meal you can either have a walk in the park or visit the art gallary. Try the vegetable stack, would recommend it. ...

The cafe may be accessed from within ( and at the back) of the Bendigo Art Gallery or from the parkland at the back of the Gallery. There are tables inside and out ( for those willing to sit in the cold air with a small dash of sunshine). Parking (paid) is plentiful near the parkland - just take the... More

The food was overpriced and the service by a seemingly untrained teenager. He dissappeared after seating me, leaving me to cast around for another server, then reappeared after I'd ordered. After I finished my food he whisked my plate away yet several other tables were left piled with dirty crockery the whole time. I paid $12.50 for a baked potato... More

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 one of the best I've eaten, with bursts... 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.
