Great venue. It was busy today so service was slightly slower but not something to complain about. The food was tasty but they charge a 10% surcharge on weekends which is a bit unimpressive.

Thank you so much for the feedback, we will definitely pass it on. Sorry that you weren't aware of the surcharge, we do mention it on the menus though. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Beware! Hidden in small font under a heading called Credit Card Policy that no one usually reads, the booking demands that you must order at least $35 worth of food regardless if you are an adult or a child. How embarrassing to be told just before leave that we missed the tiny font on our booking confirmation which by otherwise boldly and big letters stated time, date, amount of people, the address of the cafe and hidden in the middle of last paragraph is the fact that you must have minimum spend otherwise your credit card will be charged the full amount regardless of what you and your friends ordered. Disgusting experience, and my friends nor I will ever come back.

Hi Laura, We apologise for your experience. $35 min spend is mentioned before you book, not in the credit card policy, we showed it to you too online. We didn't say we will charge your credit card, we informed you after you ordered, that min spend applies to booking of 8+, you opened your email, it was in the confirmation email. Then you said you missed reading it both times. Despite all of that, you didn't meet your min spend & we let it go, we were extremely polite about it, if you can recall.

The place is very cute I loved the flower walls and pink velvet chairs and pink tea pots. It was very pretty and girly. I had the panacotta and it was exceptional. Was plated like a work of art and tasted delicious. The head waitress was very friendly and engaging. Overall we had a fantastic experience. Thank you

The ONLY thing letting your gorgeous place was the very poor parking - its a fault of Hawthorn! Not you, but it does make me reconsider coming back. I would recommend you but with a warning about parking.

The menu was a delight to read and the staff were a total delight!

Thanks a million!

It’s a great place to visit but the service wasn’t great. Felt like another number really took away the enjoyment of being there.
Fancy pancakes were delicious and a nice venue just the service wasn’t very nice.

FI:KA Hawthorn
Responded on April 21, 2021

Hi Lora, Thanks for the feedback. We apologise you didn't find the service up to mark. As you know you were late for the booking and our kitchen closes at 3:45pm so we requested you for the food order straightaway. The other guest with you said she knew what you all wanted and ordered for you. After you sat down, you ordered more and we took that order too. We apologise that you didn't like our service but we were only trying to help by taking your order and not to disappoint you.

The food and drinks are very decadent, however the venue and service does not match the aesthetic that is trying to be achieved. Would definitely come back again and give them a second shot as I can imagine service would be better inside than outside. Highly recommend not to order the mermaid hot chocolate with soy milk as the flavours aren’t right together.

Pannacotta was nice however probably a good idea to confirm with the chefs that the marshmallows are vegetarian friendly, as the dish is marked as vegetarian but when asking the waitress about if there was gelatine in the marshmallows they didn’t know so I ordered without.

FI:KA Hawthorn
Responded on April 18, 2021

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for visiting us yesterday, your selected seating was outdoor and we tried to check up on you a few times, the owner made sure she checked up on you too. Our marshmallows are vegetarian, sorry that the waitress didn't know. We have had customers order mermaid white choc with soy milk before but we apologise that you didn't like it. Whether you book for inside or outside, we try and make sure that our guests are looked after. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Unique proposition compared with the standard brunch places. Plenty of wow factor with milkshakes, colourful Instagram worthy meals etc. Cool place for an event. I did think there would be an impressive cake selection with over the top pink cupcakes or donuts but had nothing like this which means you either just have coffee or commit to a full meal. Good service and vibe.

Yes, this place is very "instagramable".

More importantly it has delicious food and wonderful customer service.

The pancakes were a very generous serving and the Mexican bowl was a tasty vegan option.

If you're going there to take photos or eat yummy food, you won't be disappointed.
