Lucky we got there before 12.00... the place fills up quick. The coffee is great and the pulled pork burger with slaw and apple is Fabulous!! The staff are friendly and helpful.... highly recommend.

I always enjoy coming to Fika. The service is good, the food is simple yet amazing and the coffee is the best in Ballarat. Great to sit outside on a nice day or sit inside in the coziness of the cafe.

Mid winter and only in Ballarat could they leave front door open!! Rug up even if you want to eat inside. Breakfast food excellent and really fast. Bit squeezy inside restaurant but service was great.
