We had lunch here through the week. The menu is quite small but the food we tried was a little unusual and very tasty. Unfortunately, although we were there as a couple, one of the dishes was served well before the other which made sharing...a little difficult. It was not really busy so I am not sure why this happened. The waitress herself was friendly and also apologetic about the delay. Coffee was good and the place was light and airy.More

I love Fika. Great coffee and fantastic food. Unfortunately I am horrified that the coffee I ordered when dining in today was in a takeaway cup. Table water arrived in takeaway cups. All around me people were dining in, multiple takeaway coffee cups on the...table, eating out of their disposable takeaway boxes. This is extremely disappointing. Single-use plastic everywhere I looked. We need to be better than this.More

So don’t get me wrong.....Fika is a lovely cafe with great food, coffee and staff BUT they recently put the price of their coffees up which has now lost me as a customer. I was charged $4.50 for a regular takeaway latte in my own...keepcup! In my opinion, especially when one brings their own cup - just way too expensive. Some cafes in Ballarat are getting just a bit too greedy! There’s plenty of cafes with great coffee who give discount for your own cup.More

Not a huge breakfast range, and tea a little strong. Still a nice cafe and the staff quite friendly as well. Popular.

Excellent service, muesli and coffee. It was doing a roaring trade on a Tuesday morning so I can’t be the only person that likes this place.

As I work for a Swedish company I just had to try Fika! Excellent coffee! Had to have 2 cups! Muesli yogurt and fruit was tasty and needed a drop of milk. Great service. Loved the leather aprons the staff were wearing. Functional but smart...too. Been meaning to try this place for a long time but always packed out so I came at an unconventional time of 11.30am, it was still busy with takeaway coffees and table orders. Nice decor, able to buy ground coffee to take home. Definitely give this place a try!More

Breakfast was soooo good I went 2 days in a row on my business trip. The coffee was beautiful, smashed avo was so tasty not to mention pretty and the add bacon was 5 star quality. My impression of Fika was of excellence. The staff...were on point, friendly, discreet and appear to LOVE what they do. Congrats to the owners... id say you’ve worked hard to achieve this experience. It’s just so nice to experience excellence while I’m away from home. Beautiful city too.More

I’m away from Melbourne for work and was recommended this spot. Awesome coffee! I also got the smashed avocado, brilliant. The toast was very thick though but really good.

Hipster coffee bar serving up excellent brews and killer almond croissants. Friendly enough staff and appears to be always busy, a testament to the quality of their output. I did also give one of their ham sanga's a go last time and this was also...pretty good.More
