El Gordo

Bendigo CBD

Best cafe El Gordo in bendigo for 2016

Ambiance was great with the situation in a narrow laneway and the small area of the cafe was appropriately decorated in a Spanish style. Our shared tapas dishes we had for lunch were very good as well. However the coffee did not quite live up to the rest being rather mild and lacking the touch of bitterness I like. Still worth a try.

Fantastic surprise in Bendigo. Great coffee and a brilliant spot to just hang out. Worth a stop.

Best cafe Old Green Bean in bendigo for 2016

Cool retro items, always something to look at and a point of conversation. Nice coffee and staff friendly even at 7.30 on a Sunday morning...




Best cafe Cortille in bendigo for 2016

Service was fast and efficient despite some previous reviews and water was brought to us without having to ask (always a positive in my view). Coffees were great with a mellow front of mouth followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste that lingered for some time. There was a good buzz in the cafe and the van inside was an interesting feature.

Coffee was excellent! Free babycinos and beautiful sunny setting. Only downside was having to wait for my batch brew as they were out when I ordered :)

Best cafe Brewhouse Coffee Roasters in bendigo for 2016

Good coffee, interesting space, friendly service. Salter caramel cookie was worth the drive from Melbourne.

Coffees were great and the vibe was sensational but unfortunately there was some confusion with our order and the flat whites were slow to arrive. Other than that it was an excellent coffee experience.

90s music playing, creating a great feel. Coffee on point first thing in the morning. And super fast. Smiles all around.
