Have not had breakfast which looks like the highlight. Decided to have lunch on the weekend and a steak sandwich. Asked for medium rare and the steak came back partially cooked but raw inside. The chips were crisp but not cooked through. The strawberry cheesecake had a hockey puck for its base as it was so hard. The cheesecake was... More

We were craving a delicious breakfast in Hamilton with our friends who had never been to NZ, so the pressure was in to find a great breakfast spot, we found this little place, the service was amazing and the food for brekky exceeded all four of our expectations! The French toast was a hit, we wish the bacon was streaky... More

Decent cafe food, indoor outdoor eating, great staff, and fast service. There are always people here and Saturday and Sunday mornings can be busy. Definitely worth a visit and well situated in town.

This is a good choice for decent cafe food. It's a nice place with good staff and nice food. The selection is reasonable, not to big and not to small with a good range of types of food. Coffee was nice, well extracted and flavorful. I have been a few times and always had the same experience. Good Cafe, Recommended.

Everything about our experience here was great. By far the best coffee i have ever had. Perfectly cooked eggs bene on rosti (it was the gluten free option), perfect portion size, my friend had the big breakfast, which was equally as delightful. The staff were awesome, the coffee guy obviously loves his job! Would definitely be back and would recommend... More

We have been to coffee and food numerous times and never had a disappointing meal. The food and coffee is always top quality. Probably one of the best Benedicts in town for a Sunday brunch!

I've breakfasted here with colleagues a number of times and had a very enjoyable experience at each! The menu has a good range of 'classic' breakfast/brunch items and the portion sizes are generous as well - I wasn't able to finish my meal both times! The coffee is good and the service is attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Prices... More

I love this place. We've been here a couple of times now. The mango chicken curry is to die for. The coffee is really good, and the service is pretty good. The food always comes out fast. This is definitely one of the better places for brunch in Hamilton.
