If you follow Alice down the rabbit hole then chances are you’ll find yourself at Bayswater favourite the Hatter and the Hare. Located just a short walk from the Bayswater train station, this charming café is well worth a trip out of the CBD.
Each of the dishes on the menu is a reference to Alice in Wonderland, from the Off with their Heads (crispy corn and zucchini fritters), the Tweedledum Burger (brisket burger braised with peach and bourbon) and the Mad Hatter’s Breakfast (a classic and quite sizeable big brekkie).
You can thank Five Senses Coffee for providing your daily caffeine hit, while milk comes from St. David’s. The Hatter and the Hare also make their own sparkling sodas in house and all juices are freshly squeezed.
But the cakes are what this café are known for. With a whole two pages of the menu dedicated just to the cake list you’re sure to find something to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’ve got an event coming up you can even place an order for a cake to be prepared, just make sure you do it at least two weeks in advance.
If you’re after a taste of the high life then make sure to book yourself a spot at Hatter’s regularly occurring high teas. You’ll be able to enjoy the tastes and style of a classic high tea in a relaxed setting, meaning you won’t have to put up with all that pomp and circumstance just to have a good cucumber sandwich and earl grey.
