Welcome to our Wonderland!

A 160-seat café and events venue in the midst of the industrial strip of Bayswater VIC.

Opened in March 2017, the Hatter & the Hare is a food emporium like no other. Situated in the midst of Bayswater’s industrial strip on Scoresby Road, it is a café, patisserie and event venue, offering a variety of gastronomic experiences that inspire patrons to unleash their wild imaginations.

Subtlety and elegance with a touch of the whimsical are top of mind and these are evident the moment you step into the Alice-in-Wonderland-inspired 160-seat café. There’s a seasonal menu that reflects the madness behind our kitchen team’s food vision; a selection of sweet treats with over a hundred varieties whipped out from the night and day dreams of our pastry team; a very busy barista station that churns out over a thousand specially-crafted hot and cold drinks on a daily basis; a High Tea service comparable to none and that will make you feel like royalty; and a growing list of services to cater to the local community including families and other businesses.

With a creative and open mind, there is (almost) nothing impossible to be had at the Hatter and the Hare. Join the madness and visit us at 1/21 Scoresby Road, Bayswater.
