About Us

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.

Elegance and an over abundance of whimsy 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 chefs' food vision; a selection of sweet treats with over a hundred varieties whipped out from the night and day dreams of our pastry chefs; 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.

Now you can bring home some of the magic through our online shop! Choose from our wide array of delectable sweet creations to add some whimsy into your celebrations or your everyday treat.
