On advice from a fellow Bendigo Writers Festival attendee I got my first coffee of the second day from Basement, located underneath The Capital Theatre and beside the Art Gallery. I was incredibly thankful for the recommendation, Basement yielded the best coffee of my stay! I particularly loved how the barista and his offsider were discussing the best way to mix a sugar through the shot - those that talk about coffee appreciate coffee. Before the afternoon sessions I snuck in again for a latte (Why give up a good thing?) and a home-made lamington. I couldn't finish the rich treat but the coffee was a very necessary boost! Absolutely impressed by Basement on View, service, speed, atmosphere all brilliant.
