The Hawk and Hunter is a welcoming cafe, very open and relaxed. Good service and nice food. Yummy cakes to tempt for tea. Parking was easy for a morning cuppa. There was an area that could be used for larger groups up the back.

I was recommended to this Cafe for a great breakfast place on a recent trip to Melbourne. Great atmosphere, great quick service and fantastic variety in food. It was really busy but didn't have to wait long at all for drinks or food. Definitely a place to go back to

H & H is just so good in so many ways, food, service, ambience - it's not a surprise that despite the size there is no guarantee a table awaits. My only dilemma are the shocking acoustics which can make it really difficult to have a conversation even when the place isn't full.

We had a celebratory lunch with a bunch of friends at Hawk and Hunter last weekend, and it was a really fabulous meal. My wife and I shared two mealks, since we couldn't decide which to have, and they were both great. The Meatless brekfast was delicious - and big, and we then equally enjoyed the great French toast brioche.... More

I've been here a few times during work day. Food is always excellent - varied, delicious menu good particularly for brunch. Sometimes a bit hipster in terms of staffing but generally had good service. Definitely worth a visit!

Frequent this cafe whilst taking the train, staff are usually friendly, though sometimes its a bit cold and impersonal. Coffee is reasonably priced though its a bit crowded where to order the coffee and wait with the waiter's tablet mounted on the wall and them hustling and bustling to get to it ( and thats okay ). I guess if... More

We went for lunch after not going for a year. The restaurant changed hands and some reports were not so good. I can say that I found the food very nice and the service good. The menu included a variety of healthy options. Everything on the menu sounded good and all of us were happy with our choices of meals.

This place serves nice food. On the weekend they tend to be busy. The service is lacking. We were there with three other tables, had to wait for 20 mins for the waiter to come and take orders. It was very annoying considering they were empty. Interesting good. The good is delicious.

We have been going to Hawk & Hunter for years and always enjoyed it until our last visit. The attitude of one of the wait staff was just appalling. She was unwelcoming, very short with us and quite aggressive. Won't be back...there are so many more places to spend our money where we will be made to feel welcome and... More
