Matt Freeman recently established FIKA Coffee Brewers after previous Barista experience at highly regarded St Ali in South Melbourne. Matt and his young team have undertaken a total make -over of the old building on the corner of Mair Street to create a stylish cafe for lovers of speciality coffee. There's also a small selection of delicious sweet and savoury things, but the focus is on exceptionally good coffee and good service.
Fika in Doveton Street, Ballarat is a brand new entrant into what is now the highly competitive Ballarat coffee scene. Fika hits the mark with specialty coffee which is the main focus here. The latte I sampled was very finely crafted with beautiful rich texture worked into the steamed milk. The food menu is secondary to the coffee at Fika with a small selection of bagels, sandwiches, cookies and an orange marmalade scroll, but Fika’s carefully crafted coffees set a new benchmark in the Ballarat region. Customer service was swift and cheerful, and we were met at the front door and shown to a table on arrival. So good to see this level of service in a new coffee venue. Throughout our visit we were well looked after and attended to.
Focus on coffee with some light foods including gluten free
