View Street is packed with cafes, restaurants and wine bars, from the busy Italian Borchelli, to the elegant Wine Bank, and the atmospheric Basement, which is nestled between The Capital and the Bendigo Art Gallery.
For regular festival-goers, the newcomer this year is already a View Street favourite: Harvest not only has excellent in-house patisserie, but also boasts a carefully selected regional wine list.
There’s a Festival Coffee Bar at The Capital too, for that quick pick-me-up between sessions.
Please remember to book early if you’re planning a meal in one of Bendigo’s much-admired restaurants.
And remember, too, the Community Farmers’ Market is on next to the Visitor Centre on Saturday morning of the Festival weekend.
