The Exchange Cafe Bar Restaurant
As part of the new Bendigo Bank complex, this restaurant/wine bar is so named because of its location and connection with money production. The large modern space has an outside deck overlooking the city’s ornate fountain, Charing Cross and Rosalind Park. Although the space and menu are contemporary, the kitchen is traditional, making all its soups, sauces, stocks and bases from scratch, baking fresh bread daily and churning its own homemade ice-creams. The Exchange caters to a wide sector of the community with quick coffee and homemade cakes, tapas plates in the wine bar and everything through to a full sit-down meal. The wine list reflects the best from the Bendigo region wineries.
