Yummy food, accommodating staff

I ate twice at Hydrant on my latest trip to Ballarat and was pleased with both visits. I got there shortly before closing and they’d run out of vegan cake/slices, but were very accommodating and offered raisin toast and coffee - perfect for a chilly afternoon. I went the next morning for breakfast and really enjoyed my ‘Tahini Greens’ - sliced avocado with grilled zucchini and broccolini on sourdough. A really filling and delicious breakfast. I’d highly recommend this place for its scrumptious food and very friendly staff.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options , Friendly staff , Nice atmosphere

Hidden lane way gem!

Tucked down a little lane way you will find this amazing establishment. We were squeezed in without a booking for some Sunday morning breakfast and it did not disappoint. Quite a few vegan options, plenty of vegetarian options and a great kids menu. Value for money. Food was delicious!

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Fresh & fabulous food, Great vibes

Cons: Bookings encouraged to avoid disappointment , Hot drinks could've been hotter

Hydrant made vegan was lovely

Hydrant is welcoming, cheerful, bright, and friendly. I booked a table this morning and had the Hydrant made vegan. I asked if my mushrooms could be made oil-free too, and they were. It was lovely.
