My favourite lunch time cafe

Healthy options here. The Brioche with mushrooms was divine. Coffee is great. Delicious selections of baking, my favourite is the cheese, caper and mustard scones. The staff are lovely, fun and friendly

Best coffee in Hamilton and the best Caesar Salad I've ever had. Friendly and quick service. Great location with outside dinning. Will be back. 👊

A friend took me here for lunch and what a cool place, venue was excellent and service attentive. Plenty of patrons (always a good sign), we both had the southern chicken blue cheese burger and it was very tasty, nothing bland and boring here! Certainly recommend this place!

Could this little unassuming retro styled Cafe be the best in Hamilton. Arguably the best cheese scone I've ever tasted. Coffee was excellent too , although I do prefer slightly bigger cups. I'm unsure if they do a large cup.

Friends went a few days before us and they were told that the kitchen had closed at 12.30. They went there at 2 pm. We went for brunch on a Monday morning at 08.30 and were told that they had run out of hash browns and mushrooms! The muesli I had was delicious, colourful and came with a coconut yoghurt.... More

We had been given a voucher to spend and were looking forward to eating out. The serve-over cabinet food was very limited and somewhat tired looking and the menu options were bread-based or breakfast type only. What about salad options, either as a meal or in ciabatta bread? Even a club sandwich may have been a nice, easy option. The... More

I enjoyed an early morning breakfast at Hazel Hayes, just as their regular customers were starting to dribble in from the local businesses - good to see they seem to have a great relationship with these people. I had trouble deciding what to order, so went with Hazel's Breakfast. Nice to try a little bit of so many things, I... More

Everything here looks fresh, wholesome and delicious! The cabinet food looks so tempting and care is taken to present it beautifully, so you can tell there people love good and enjoy creating a feast for the eyes and belly! - great sign for what the cooked breakfasts will be like! (Photos added) The hash browns are amazing! So yummy! And... More
