The Hatter and the Hare
A great place to have a day out too
Awesome food 😀💜💜
we ordered the beef burger but was quite sour for the dressing, not very nice taste. The chips are good.
Over rated for amount provided at quite a hefty price
We had a wonderful time at The Hatter and the Hare. The food was amazing and the service of a very high standard. Staff were very accomodating and highly professional. The atmosphere was high in energy and had a positive feel to it. Loved every minute that we were there and would go back again and again.
Always very good service and exceptional food. We had a table near the front and the window had been fully opened so the beautiful weather was coming in for us to enjoy!
OUR MEALS TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET TO OUR TABLE AND MY GNOCCHI WAS COLD AND FLAVOURLESS. CAKES AND TARTS SOLD OUT VERY QUICKLY TOO
Pleasantly surprising find in the middle of a very industrial area. The desserts were incredible and we were blown away by the variety! Also, highly recommend the hot cocoa!
As usual we enjoyed our visit to the Hatter and the Hare. It is a favourite of my grandson and we visit every school holidays. His sweet tooth is more than satisfied. The choice of food is unbelievable and service was excellent. The café was decorated in a wonderful Easter display - well done. We will be back.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and did a great job!
Our waitress was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable of menu& professional!
Fun and creative menu. The cakes are different to most cafes, nice change.
Great food and desserts to die for. When booking it doesn't say that there is a 1.5hr seating duration, you only are told when you arrive. Parking and noise is a problem, but the food, desserts and atmosphere make up for it. You won't go home hungry.
Amazing food, and very busy, but I would definitely return... so many sweet things I haven't yet tried.
The food was great and beautifully presented. The attention to detail was really impressive, however some items were overpriced in relation to the serving size.
The venue has a great feel to it, but unfortunately far too overcrowded to fully maximise the ambience. Even the wait staff appeared to struggle with the layout and lack of effective flow particularly in the entry/exit.
The lack of car parking is also a huge issue and should be highlighted on the website so people are aware of alternative parking options available.
Overall, an enjoyable experience and would love to visit again but would probably avoid the weekends.
We've been here a few times. The meals are always so delicious. The staff are always friendly and attentive. Our aim is to eat our way through the cake cabinet!!
The food was amazing, and very fast.
I always love what I have to eat here. And the general look and feel of the restaurant is amazing.
However I had to ask someone to serve us and then had to go and get water for the table after the wait staff said they would get water, but didn’t.
The waitstaff were very nice however, I just feel we could have been served a bit more promptly.
So noisey with the industrial atmosphere. Table by the window which had a terrible cold draft coming from under the window sill and also in direct line of air con fan which was not needed being a top of 20.
Ordered burgers which came in a timely manner. However waffle chips were not hot and dressing on one burger was a teaspoon size and only on 1/5 of burger and the rest dribbled down the side making it difficult to enjoy the full combination and the thinnest slice of pineapple you have ever seen.
Considering the price paid I would expect better food quality measures and ambience / temperature controls monitored for guest comfort.
I would only go back if they brought back the chilli scramble with potato waffle. That dish wash gold and should never have been taken off.
My girlfriends and I had an enjoyable time! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. We had a great time.
Had the Red Queen's Song.
The liver parfait was the worst i have ever had
and the dish is not balanced
very disappointing as i was very impressed with the Mad hatter's BF on my previous visit
The atmosphere was beautiful, the food was delicious 😋 and the waitress and waiters were exceptional
Staff service needs to be improved. A bit more attention to detail, filling water bottles, offering drinks etc.
The presentation of the food and venue was wonderful, the taste was good but not outstanding. It’d be great if they could turn the music down a bit, when combined with a full restaurant, it made talking with others on our table almost impossible, making for an isolated meal instead of the rare family outing it was meant to be. The price is probably appropriate for what you get. Overall a good experience but one we’re not in a hurry to repeat.
Love coming here. Never disappoints. Great food and service.
Always 10/10 , an adventure every time! The menur this time was the best thus far! I took a friend for her birthday and we had a spectacular time- thank you
We enjoy the restaurant and that is why we took our friends from Queensland there . While this may not be your strategy , I would like the menu to be less breakfast orientated
Amazing food & excellent service! I have recommended it to so many people already. The only downside was the parking.
The Hatter and Hare has become my go to restaurant for brunch or lunch. It would be for dinner too only they don't open for evening meals - yet / here's hoping that that will change. The staff are ever so helpful and the food second to none. it is hands down our family's favorite restaurant
Had a lovely lunch for my sister’s birthday. The restaurant looks amazing and the food was delicious
Amazing cake selection!! Beautifully decorated... definitely need to book.
Loved our experience at The Hatter and the Hare. Food was incredible, service great and surroundings lovely. Will definitely be back.
I always meet friends and spread the word across Facebook about how amazing the Hatter and the Hare is. Keep up the great work we enjoy it every time we go.
Had a wonderful celebration. The service was friendly and quick and the food was fabulous.
Thank you for making it a great day. Will be back to try that yummy looking High Tea.
Meeting for coffee with a friend. Great service and coffee. Beautiful restaurant but too loud. Couldn’t stay as we found it difficult to have a conversation
Lovely cafe. Big and s little noisy and staff very busy but food served in good time. I had Curioser, felt it was a little small for the price. My daughter had the nave of hearts which was great.
The cakes look amazing and reasonably priced. Will be back fir cake and coffee one day.
A pity that menu was different then the one online!!!!
Maybe update it sooner!
Food was interesting, staff courteous, want to go again to work my way through the menu
The food and atmosphere is amazing, it is definitely worth the money to have a nicer dining experience on special occasions
Best place in Melb!!
We found this restaurant to be far too noisy and too crowded. A win list would have been a great addition. Menu difficult to understand and inconsistent in serve size.
