Although it's only a block from Williamstown's seafront tourist strip, Ferguson Street Provisions is very definitely a community café. It's bustling with the noise and activity of friends chatting, children scooting to and from the toy box and food cooking in the open-plan kitchen. Community fliers decorate the window and the café supports local organizations. Judging by the café's popularity, its healthy, hearty snacks, freshly baked biscuits and realistic children's menu are a hit. The values espoused by the cafe are probably also a draw card. Provisions only serves Organic Fair Trade coffees and has recently become carbon neutral.
This establishment is really two venues in one: a traditional Australian pub and a traditional restaurant. Located in a historic building, the pub is a traditional sporting bar with a giant television screen, permanently tuned to football during weekends, pool table and poker machines. The Vietnamese restaurant is quite separate from the drinking area. Catering to local working-class sixth-generation Australians, the restaurant's menu is simple yet comprehensive, with all non-English words translated and explained. Dishes include chicken curry, garlic and sweet chili prawns and beef with sweet soy and galangal. Drinks are from the bar with no surcharge.

The Atomic Bar tries to maintain a more upmarket image banning singlets, thongs and runners after 6pm and encouraging a 'neat-casual' attire. Remember the 1980s? The Atomic Bar does! Black walls, high ceilings and Duran Duran pumping from all sides. People will either love or hate this place. The light meals include Thai dishes, burgers and fish & chips.
