The Hatter and the Hare
We were told on the web site that must be out within the one and a half hours which we accepted only to be told when we got there have to be out in an hour. Wouldn’t bother again . Glasses were dirty still residue from previous drinks. Asked for a iced late and got hot latte. No time to be bothered complaining. Eat and leave.
Food is good and cakes to die for! Beautifully decorated
Amazing. Will definitely be grabbing some take away whilst your restaurant is closed
Very good place to have brunch. Just parking is not that straight forward.
This a very relaxed place to come and chill out, there is a lot to look at and even more food to choose from
The staff were very friendly at all times
This has been my third time coming here with a bus load of ladies each time
Love this place! Food is always yummy and the coffee, chai lattes and desserts are scrumptious. Love how they decorate the place too perfect for instagram pics hehe
Good food easily found, parking not great but worth the walk.
Thanks for sharing your review Silvana! We are glad you enjoyed your time at the cafe.
Awesome place for brunch! Love the share platter. You get the best of both sweet and savory!
Looking forward to going back with family & friends
Thanks for the 5-star review Leanne!
Coffee and desserts to take home were great, but the dine-in menu is really out there. Not my cup of tea!
Hi Vanessa Thanks for taking the time to review our cafe. We are glad you enjoyed your coffee and desserts! Yes, the menu is a little quirky, but each dish is carefully thought out and developed by our Chefs. If you decide to try something but are not sure what, please just ask a staff member and they will be more than happy to assist you to order something not too out there!
Staff member was extremely welcoming and helpful ☺️
Thanks for the review Wasan! We are very happy to hear you had a good experience at the cafe and that our staff were able to help you! We will see you again soon.
You have to go there to experience this place, it is not the norm, it is amazing.
Thanks for the review Andrew! We're glad to hear you loved the cafe :)
Hatter and Hare provides a lovely ambience with food that tastes great and is well presented. Our friend has special dietary requirements and the waitress went back and forth to the chef to work out a special order for her. Then of course there are the cakes! These are just amazing and they taste as good as they look.
Thanks so much for the wonderfull review Joy! We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit, and your friend was able to get a special order. We hope to see you again soon :)
Delightful food presentation and reasonable price, however few car park space available
When we first went there, we found the food and coffee delicious... and different. So when we had visitors from overseas we brought them there. They like everything in your restaurant the way I and my family did: from the moment we were welcomed by your courteous staff, the moment someone got our order by another courteous staff upto the time we sipped the drink and bit the food. By the way, it was my youngest daughter who endorsed the restaurant to us. Thanks.
We had a lovely experience great staff and wonderful menu selection
Thanks for the review Karen! We love to hear that you had a good experience with us!
Our waitress was really awesome and gave us great recommendations. I didn’t catch her name but we were there on Tuesday 11th of February at 1:15 pm and she recommended the curry and the toastie for our table which was really delicious
Thanks for the 5-star review Chloe! We will pass on the feedback to our wait staff. We are glad you loved the food, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The only issue was the music was too loud. Other than that, top knotch!
Thanks for the review Bronwyn. We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We will be sure to pass this feedback on to staff so music will be kept at an appropriate level.
I have been before but just had cake & coffee it was good we sat outside, this time we ate a meal I had ribs & my husband had a breakfast it certainly wasn’t anything I would order again & my husband wasn’t keen on some sort of pork sausage, our service was poor i was wanting to order another coffee and some dessert! I had too ask could they please clear our table after waiting for some time. Unfortunately it just looked tired and dull , we were disappointed as last time the service was great, love the cakes and will probably just stick too that next time!
Enjoyed the casual setting and ease to chat. Food was delicious and value for money. Variety of desserts main attraction.
We loved it! Thank you for making our meal & dessert so special.
You are so welcome Fiona! We are glad you enjoyed your meal and dessert. We hope to see you again soon!
Disappointed on quality of food. The menu looks great but the taste of food is very ordinary.
Hi Kris. We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your food. If at any time you are unsatisfied with something you have ordered, please advise one of our staff members, and they will happily replace the item. We would love to know about any dissatisfaction while you are in the cafe so we can help you then and there. We do hope you try us out again :)
Good cafe in general. The Chase the white rabbit was little bit oily. Otherwise we were quite happy with our last visit.
The food was sensational and the cakes superb. The kitchen runs like a well oiled machine and the food comes out altogether and quickly. The overall standard was very high and we will be back. Thank you also for allowing a booking of 10 which was much appreciated.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit with us Elizabeth! Thanks for leaving us a great review, and we are glad that you are going to come back and dine with us!
Booking was easy, service was great and the food very good.
Thanks Tim for the review! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit! :)
Brunch with friends, great menu - lots of very flavourful choices.
Quite noisy, and being there on a very hot day, cooling struggled.
We were there for my sisters birthday. Group booking for 8 people. Our waiter didn’t return to table beyond initial drinks and lunch order. We surely would have loved to try some cakes and coffees to finish the celebrations but were never offered.
Most of the food was good with the exception of my daughters white king toastie - so much fat on bacon, not appetizing for a young teenager. She barely touched her lunch.
Hi Lisa. We're sorry your waiter didn't return to take your cake & coffee order. This is something that we will feed back to wait-staff to ensure that this is always done so our customers can try our desserts and coffees too! We're glad to hear most of the food was good. In regards to the toastie, if at anytime you are not satisfied with a meal, then please do not hesitate to speak to a staff member and they will look in to getting the meal replaced for you. We hope to see you again soon!
Will go back and take others for High Tea, food is superb, and is worth another visit 🙂
Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to leave a great review. We are so glad you loved the High Tea! Make sure you come along to another High Tea in Autumn when the menu changes, and you will be in fr a real treat!
Great experience and excellent food. Different seasonal produce mean the menu is changed regularly. Tried the specialty cakes. They look and taste amazing. Worth the visit.
Was beautiful, food was amazing. Bit disappointed that there wasn’t a big variety of cakes but that was my own fault in the timing (left my run too late) it is that popular. Been a number of times and it never disappoints.
Thanks for the lovely review, Sue. Yes, the cakes are so popular! Hopefully next time, you have your choice of all the cakes! See you again soon.
Excellent service and happy vibe which matched the wonderful tasty food. I came with my two adult sons and we all loved it.
Hi Jenny! We love to hear about your positive experience with us. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great 5-star review. We hope to see you again soon!
We enjoyed our latest lunch at Hatter and the Hare. The new menu is fantastic and so much fun. And the cakes are simply beautiful it’s almost a shame to eat them! Highly recommend the Hatter and the Hare For breakfast, lunch or just coffee and cake.
Hi Karen. Thank you very much for the 5-star review. We love changing up the menu seasonally, and glad you love the new Summer menu! The cakes are definitely delicious! Hope you dine with us again soon.
I'm going again on Monday and very happy about that. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Hi Gwenda. Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a positive review. We are very happy that you had a great experience, and it sounds like you are becoming one of our regulars! See you soon!
Lovely food and very well presented, however I felt I needed another piece of sourdough with my eggs. Overall, the food tastes wonderful and definitely a good place to eat.
The fried chicken burger was the bomb! Still thinking about it!! Was lovely to sit outside! Always my fave local place!
Thank you for the lovely review! The chicken burger is a favourite! We hope to see you again soon so you can try something else from the new Summer menu.
Excellent service & quality.
This is the third time I have been to The Hatter and The Hare in 2 weeks! I think that says it all! Absolutely fabulous.
Thank you for the review! We love to have people come back again and again! See you next week? 😜
Our first time at this establishment and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Consider it was 40+ degrees and the fridges & air con was struggling, the staff were fantastic, helpful and the Xmas decorations were beautiful.
Thank you for the 5-star review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you join us again soon!
We came for a late lunch for my birthday and I have to say I was extremely impressed!! I had wanted to go for awhile and it definitely lived up to the hype!! Food was to die for and loved the atmosphere.
Thanks Hatter & Hare for making my birthday lunch awesome xxxx
Thanks so much for the review! We are so glad you enjoyed your birthday with us! We hope to see you again soon :)
