Whether you’re a Sunday breakfast regular, or you’re just stopping for lunch on your way through town, you’ll be sure to leave The Boardwalk Bendigo feeling satisfied, smiling and relaxed. Oh, and did we mentioned that we love dogs? Our resident Labrador, Chino, loves to make friends, so your four-legged pals are more than welcome too! Our renowned lakeside venue is a cool and classy combination of rustic timber decor featuring antique telegraph posts, and polished concrete floors. You and your guests can also kick back and relax outside on the timber decking by the water’s edge of Lake Weeroona. We love it here. So will you!

The cafe is in a great location by the lake. It has a beautiful outdoor area and a nicely decorated and roomy indoor area. The ambience is wonderful, the food is delicious and the staff members are all so friendly and attentive. If I'm ever in Bendigo again I WILL be back!

When I asked for water, I was offered sparkling or still. I chose still as this generally means tap water. I was given a bottle of still water (top already off) & glass. I asked if there was a charge & was told yes. I gave immediate feedback that it would be customary to advise diners of where the 'help yourself water station' was, or advise of a charge, as its not common place to charge for still water in Australia. Waitress just a bit passive aggressive & this experience is typical (same/same but different) a the Boardwalk, the owner is very often like this. Its such a shame because the venue & location is great so they get away with these little things. Our 2nd waitress was beautiful, but I have not once been to the Boardwalk & not had something a little off putting happen. Recommend, but with a warning!

I must comment on the staff who were exceptionally well trained in friendliness and professionalism. I chose this establishment for it’s beautiful views of the lake however the unexpected fog that blanketed the area was unfortunate.

Was a little overpriced for the breakfast I purchased ( eggs extraordinaire), the waffles were overly sweet. Would be nice to have an option for just Bacon & Eggs or Toast on the menu.

Multiple different staff members wished her a happy birthday, and my special request for a little ‘happy birthday’ note for the table was not only obliged but taken a step further with a sweet little gift in a bag with a printed happy birthday note on it. Couldn’t recommend The Boardwalk enough, everything from the staff to the decor to the food and drink was fantastic. :)

If I was being picky the juice was nearly all ice and the tea was served in a cup rather than tea pot, which I prefer. Not overly big serves but adequate, probably getting towards the pricer end of things

This was disappointing but let’s hope it was just the result of the Easter weekend … we waited ages for food that was really ordinary. There were rigidities that made no sense. Eg Being told we couldn’t ask for onions to be left out of a salad because they were understaffed it was too busy for the chef to adjust dishes. As a result, usual basic features of feeling looked after were missing. And prices were very high given the quality of the food which was was poor. We won’t go back in a hurry and as said hopefully that was all about poor staffing levels and management of a busy weekend.

The staff wanted us to leave and had been making it clear before we were finished so they could get the next lot of people in. We had barely been there for one hour…disappointing.

The menu needs to change for a lunch menu as having muesli and eggs for lunch mmmm needs something else like chicken and cream sauce the food we had was lovely but a change would be nice but overall 🤙

Asked for a table on the boardwalk and were told they were all full however for the duration of our meal multiple tables were empty. Waiters were friendly. Food was okay, terrible toast, burnt and so hard to cut. Eggs cooked great!

(FYI, we are currently struggling to re-open fully from C19 and often do not have enough staff to use all of our tables, which is why you saw multiple empty tables. Hopefully over the next few months we will manage to recruit more Chefs so that we can use all of our tables) :)
