First judges’ comments in 2018
This is a very appealing little café and a new addition that is raising the bar of the café culture in Ballarat. Visitors will be immediately struck by the colour and vibrancy of the decor. It is super clean and has lots of little spaces for people to be able to somewhere which suits them. The food is very fresh and the variety of appealing cakes and biscuits on display are more than enough to give any sweet toothed diner a tough decision to make. Friendly staff that make you feel welcome and proud of what they are doing. Bodega will be the café of choice for Ballarat locals and visitors.
Easy parking. Delightful ambience. Friendly staff. Good menu choices and coffee. Good value for money.
