Sympathy Teas at Fawkner Tearooms
At Fawkner Tearooms, we provide sympathy teas and wakes for after funeral catering. We have a range of menus (listed on our Menu page)
There are two function rooms available with the third option being the hall at St. Marks Catholic Church on Sydney Road.
- The main function room has the facillity to cater for 50 or more people.
- The front and smaller function room caters for 25 -50 people and incorporates the Alfresco and Cafe area, with the option of move to the back larger room if it has not been booked previously. This can only be determined on the day. If a smaller group wants to book the back larger room ahead of time, then there will be an additional fee of $200 to secure the room.
If both rooms at Fawkner Tearooms are booked at the time you need, then we can offer another off site option at St. Marks hall, which is located opposite the Fawkner Cemetery Sydney Road entrance. We can provide the same menu options to be delivered at St. Marks hall or at another venue that you arrange (i.e. other hall, venue or chapel subject to the provision of required cooking and food holding facilities).
Within Fawkner Tearooms' solid brick walls, visitors to Fawkner Memorial Park can take time out for refreshments. Tea, coffee and light lunches are served and takeaway items are available from the cafe area. Visitors to the park can also purchase fresh flowers in this area. Stop for a freshly cooked lunch with homemade coffee.
