Our Story

Inspired by Melbourne Laneway culture and set in the Gippsland village of Stratford, Badger & Hare has secured its place as a destination location. We love what we do! Our quirky and unique cafe offers a seasonal menu perfect for brunch or a long lunch.

At Badger & Hare we are serious about coffee. Very serious! In fact, our coffee is recognised as one of the best in Gippsland. We love our Dukes Coffee specialty brew. Roasted in Richmond and featuring caramel and chocolate notes, we discovered this delight in Melbourne’s famous Flinders Lane!

Our Store showcases produce from all over Gippsland, including our own range of sauces and specialty products – a great place to pick up that special gift or memento.

Located on the main road to the Gippsland Lakes, High Country and the picturesque coastal drive to Sydney, our village café is the local’s choice. Known for exceptional customer service, whether you’re here for a takeaway coffee or an entire afternoon, our friendly team will tailor your Badger experience to meet your needs.

Winners of the Central Gippsland Business Tourism award for Best Café in 2019, Badger & Hare has set the bar for excellence across the region.
“Great coffee, great food and great service. These girls excel!”
