My daughter and I went here for lunch today. Although they did explain they were one staff member short that still does not excuse the more than one hour wait for my coffee - then only got it because I stood by the machine and stared pointedly; and the undercooked, raw, lamb wrap my daughter ordered. I thought it was... More

We went to lunch. Two gluten intolerant people. Asked for gluten free bagels with salmon and cream cheese. The bagel was so dry it was literally impossible to eat. Not joking here. The waitress said she would tell the chef but no one seemed to care. Also vastly overpriced!

Great place to go to on a weekend for brunch/lunch. I guess you can go there any day of the week, but we've mostly been to the Hydro on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The food is tasty and well prepared, great service with a smile and good value. I like the retro type decor.

Went here with two grandchildren & a hungry Uni student. Meals to suit all, with a reasonable choice for the children. Meals did take a while & it wasn't that busy. Nice to be able to sit outside on a sunny winters day.

The Hydro is not delivering the goods these days. Indifferent coffee and poor service do not make up for the great location close to the river. It is an ideal place to refuel after a bike ride or walk along the river paths but the service has to be good and the food/beverages up to scratch before we will visit... More

This cafe is usually a nice place to have coffee/brunch after a solid morning walk around the river from the Hamilton Gardens. However on this visit the service was not up to par. Hydro is known for longer wait times due to their small kitchen for the fine fare on offer. On this visit the coffee took longer than usuall... More

I have been coming to Hydro for nearly a decade. I love that its set in a quiet area next to the river and there is always free parking. Plus there is a place to tie you dog up to as well. The decor has changed a bit since my last visit. Its a little bit sterile when you go... More

Ordered the hot cakes which were dry and tasteless with a spit of maple spirit and bananas which had been shown the oven for a brief moment. Coffee was good though and on a quiet Saturday morning the service was quick and friendly.

Lovely setting in summer, great location as it is out of the way. Not much in the way of cabinet food. Our meals were nice enough but I thought a bit over priced for what is was.
