When I hear the word “milk bar”, it congers up images of a small corner store filled with the essential grocery items and display windows filled with lollies and candy. As a child I would buy a 20cent bag of mixed lollies and it would last me all day. But this milk bar is different.
I was happy to hear that the Bendigo street milk bar was still alive and operating. Many years ago, my mum and auntie used to work a couple of streets down and used to frequent it for lunch. During school holidays, my brother used to work with my mum for a few weeks. My auntie will call their lunch orders ahead and would send my brother down to pick it up. He has fond memories of his regular egg and bacon rolls
I had the opportunity to head down with my Little Man for brunch. I was met with friendly staff who were more than happy to help me with the menu.
I started off with a latte and my Little man had a babycino complete with marshmallows.
Since the Little man already had breakfast, he really wanted the brownie that was on display. It was dense and fudgy. So good.
They have an outside courtyard, which is accessible through a small hall way to the back door of the cafe. A family were happily eating and chatting away.
I will definitely like to return and try their lunch menu. Their display case of different sandwiches and their specials board menu sounded amazing. The staff were super friendly and the place felt comfortable where you can just sit and have a cup of coffee as the world skipped by.
