2016 Judges’ Comments

Bendigo Corner Store Cafe in View Street sits like a beacon of friendliness in its neighbourhood attracting a variety of people – locals, holiday-makers, tradies, cyclists, and some with dogs. Singles, couples and larger groups were among the customers ready to enjoy themselves and get their coffee fix,  There are tables and chairs on each side of the building, on the pavement and a lovely courtyard area. It’s bright, cheer, clean and inspires confidence. The menus on brown paper on clipboards suit the vibe of a contemporary cafe and the cakes and slices in display cabinets looked inviting. The Middle Eastern breakfast was great with ripe red chIlli strands dried and shredded and sprinkled over the top of the scrambled eggs and spicy cauliflower, adding flavour and colour. It was a very tasty dish; the acidity in the hummus and in the grilled lemon cheek offsetting the creaminess of the eggs. The Corner Store breakfast (the highest priced dish on the menus) was delicious and suits those with big appetites.  The good but drinks list included three sparkling, four whites and three reds with the majority local, and it was good to see local beers on the drinks list. Customer service at Corner Store cafe was friendly and helpful, the prices moderate and the value for money good.
