Good Downtown Breakfast

Large tasty cooked breakfast with OK coffee. Slightly unusual shabby decor and needing to order at the counter (no table service) are negatives but overall an ok but not memorable experience. Friendly.

We went to brunch at Hazel Hayes and what a positive experience it was. From the moment we walked in the staff were super friendly and went out of their way to make us welcome. The coffee was delicious and prompt. Food was out of this world- I got the pancake pan- an array of pancakes, rhubarb, lemon curd and... More

Popped in for Saturday brunch with a friend. Coffee was good, could have been warmer but we were too eager to drink and not to make a fuss. We ordered a savory and a sweet breakfast which came out at a reasonable time. Was overall very nice and meals tasted fresh and made with care and attention. Would recommend to... More

I stumbled upon this place on my way to work. The coffee is always great, every meal & snack has been delicious especially the buffalo burger and the quesadillas. Staff are always friendly and welcoming.

I just have to point out about this café we went to today for lunch, the counter lady have no people skills and customer service (very cold voice, was not interested in us at all, probably cost a million $ for her to squeeze a smile on her face), the cleaner however have more manners than that lady, he was...

Service, ambience, taste - all perfect. A latte, turned into a latte and Chocolate Caramel Slice. Yum, yum, yum! Their lunch menu is not just cabinet food but includes Beef Cheek, Buffalo Burgers, salads and Brunch stuff. Great looking salads and salmon steaks and other goodies to choose from. All the food available is prepared on-site.

Found this place by accident and we were not disappointed!! We both had breakfast and a coffee, so yum! We were served by possibly the nicest guy, so friendly! Next time I'm in Hamilton I'll be coming here again :-)
