Great coffee, good food. Great place for a mid-week lunch, order off the specials menu board they're always sure to be good especially when the chef is using in-season produce eg. whitebait, scallops.....the whitebait fritters last season were great! I have also been here for a quick, early meal on my own before it gets busy and as some of... More

Food was very good but it suprised us that some items on the menu were not available early on a Saturday night. Service efficient and friendly. Not exactly cheap meals but about average for quality meals.

I continue to enjoy the dinners Iam served at Suburbia. The chef gets the steak right EVERY time. THe combinations on the plate are always well thought out and beautifully presented. I make a point of getting throught to dessert as there is always something to delight all tastebuds at the table. A great atmosphere and front of house staff.... More

Great Coffee. Amazing Food, Friendly Staff. Well priced. What more could I say? This has become my regular spot to visit for a quick coffee on the go or a Sunday brunch. Lovely couple that own it too!

Popped in for brunch - attracted by TripAdvisor report. Although we were there at 11am, we were told no breakfast was available, as the Sunday Rast was cooking. Poor attitude, zero service, 100% customer dissatisfaction.

Cafe Suburbia is located conveniently at the north end of Victoria street with free parking on the street out front, good location for informal business meetings. The food and coffee is excellent. I found the service great, despite being extremely busy and quite noisy. One of the best, slightly more formal cafes in Hamilton city.

we had a family lunch with parents and grandchildren on a Friday. Undercooked mussel fritters that were gooey, a steak sandwich made like a school lunch with basic bread. The best looking dish was fish and chips. Most disappointing with the open bifold windows so the smokers could fill the restaurant with their fumes. Look forward to an improvement so... More

Amazing meals here although hours are limited so not so good for an out of towner traveling down. Level of service has been very mixed and very average, with more emphasis on service could be fantastic.

Looking forward to pleasant shelter from a cold winters night to spend time with best friends who are our regular dining companions. Very friendly and helpful staff. We settled in for what we hoped would be a convivial mouth watering experience. The menu expressed the chef's creativity and we had no problem choosing from the range of entrees and mains... More
