This is usually a great place to do breakfast and their football shaped hash browns are fabulous. Today they were just a little cold in the centre which was disappointing. Today I also needed WiFi and a quick scan showed Hazel Hayes as an available network but when I asked for the password it was 'no' we don't have it.... More

I just dropped by for a quick flat white as I heard they were using some new beans - loved the rustic look of the place, food looked good and coffee was made to absolute perfection.

I've had good experiences at hazel Hayes but today was really disappointing. I love the atmosphere if the eclectic cafe but that was about it. The table had a problem with what looked like fleas, which proceeded to jump over our food and drinks. My brunch salad was literally just lettuce, 2 mushrooms and 2 eggs. Coffee was fine. Staff...

The coffee was good as were the slices but my salmon fish cake had strange curry flavours, not char sui, too many unsprouted beans, rather hard avocado and, worst of all, hardly any salmon amongst all the stodgy potato. Very disappointing and I left most of it. The others at the table were very happy with their hash browns. Good... More

Super cute cafe in Hamilton. I've never been a fan of the Tron but they certainly do have some amazing places you can eat out at and visit. This place was so relaxed and friendly. Also, I have serious food intolerances so eating out can be quite stressful, especially for breakfast as what I can eat is limited. But I... More

Down in Hamilton for work and stumbled upon this cafe. So good that we came back three days in a row. Friendly staff, consistently good coffee and interesting high quality food. Breads and home made preserves particularly good. Eggs done as requested. Everything fresh and well cooked. Atmosphere is a retro-modern blend. Try it

Lovely cafe - fab food and coffee. Eclectic mix of tables, chairs, crockery & decor make the experience. Shame they've stopped giving you the little model cars as your order markers. Just love this cafe though. Make sure you visit.

Went here on a friends recommendation, and it was as good as we had been told. Simple, classy tasty food, excellent coffee, and friendly, helpful service. Busy, but not cramped, as so many cafes are.

Top breakfast spot in perhaps not the best row of shops in Hamilton. Great bacon and eggs. Curly fries and aioli are very popular along with the hash browns. Nice spot that won't break the bank.
