WINNER - The Elmore Bakery
Whether it's sweet or savoury, bakeries are one of the rare places that can fill the void, regardless of the craving. Baking is regarded as a craft and so it should be, there's nothing more satisfying than taking a bite of some warm, freshly baked good straight out of the oven. The votes flooded through for this category but surely enough, The Elmore Bakery rose to the top.

Whether it's a Sunday afternoon backyard BBQ or a night of five star dining, a burger will most likely be on the menu. Nothing beats that feeling of biting into a juicy mouthwatering burger for the first time, and that feeling alone may get you across the line to be voted as the Bendigo's best burger! Head over to Flight Bar if you're still chasing that feeling, you won't be disappointed! We recommend the Bok Bok Burger!
