Provenance Estate is conveniently located just 6-minutes away from local shopping hot spots with plenty of stores, cafes and restaurants to visit. Now is as important a time as ever to show some locals our love, so here’s our list of the best eateries and boutique shops for future Provenance residents to enjoy.
A must-do in Bendigo is a visit to Oliver Birch to pick up some pieces for your new Provenance home. Known for their passionate ability to turn homes into gorgeous spaces that reflect your unique personal style, they’ve curated a range of the finest homewares, accessories and furniture from around the globe.
After stocking up on your new homewares, your next stop should be to Living Gifts for a variety of plants for your Provenance home. Whether it’s a fiddle leaf fig or some Devil’s Ivy, you’re sure to find something to really bring your home to life – in the most literal way possible.
All this shopping is bound to have made you hungry. If you’re craving savoury or sweet, George’s Bakehouse is the way to go with their range of filled doughnuts, croissants and cupcakes or their traditional meat pies and sausage rolls.
PERCY AND PERCY
If you’re after a dine-in cafe experience, then look no further than Percy and Percy. Beckoning in the café crowds with delicious coffee and modern breakfast fare in a trendy decked out hub, you can watch the world go by from the courtyard or settle inside amongst a cozy setting of wooden tables and low pan lighting. Combining Coffee Basics beans and Inglenook Milk, Percy and Percy’s coffee is reason alone to make a visit – but after a peek at the menu, you won’t be able to resist staying a little longer.
Being in Australia, you can be sure that wherever you are, there’s a pub close by. In this case, we’d like to introduce Provenance residents to their new local – the Huntly Hotel. This family-friendly Hotel is renowned for its beer garden, classic pub eats (with modern twists), and you can be sure that you’ll get that family feel that comes with a local pub, with the kids getting a playground too (bonus!)
If you’re not already shopped out, a visit to Gathered will definitely do you well. This boutique store is a local favourite – whatever you’re after, from small gifts to those last finishing touches of your home, you can be sure to find at this trendy little store. But be warned, you might be walking out with more than you intend to!
Before you know it, it’s dinner time. Where should you go, you ask? Well, Ms. Batterhams, of course! ‘The new girl with a past’, as the owners call it, is set in the basement of the old school hall at Mackenzie Quarters, which has been converted into a sophisticated lounge bar. It’s our tip for boutique and classic cocktails, and a menu that’ll leave you full, but definitely wanting to come back for more.
In a meat mood? We get it! Meet our local favourite for steaks, The Woodhouse. Since 2012, they’ve been known for their woodfired experience, cooking with redgum on their chargrill and local applewood in their charcoal oven. They specialise in premium beef, grass-fed and in-house dry-aged meat selection, for all of our hungrier locals. You’ll know you’re close when you smell the delicious smokiness of the red gum char-grill from the minute you step through their doors.
And there you have it, these are our best picks and our local Bendigo loves who we know our residents will pinching themselves over being so close to. When you visit, be sure to let them know we sent you.
