Always good to visit

Meeting friends for coffee is always an option when we are looking for a good place to meet. A bowl of hot chocolate arrived piping hot with 4 marshmallows floating not the top and although not as chocolately as I like the environment was pleasant enough to stay for 2.5 hours without any hassles... read more

My best meal of the week is indeed the Sunday brunch, as it allows me to spend some quality time with my girlfriend. I have tried the brunch menu at various places so far, but none of them are as good as the Metropolis Caffe. They are really good with their foods, coffee and dessert.

Milkshake is something that I always adore and my family also likes to drink this rather healthy food. Normally, caffes use substandard products and syrups for making these shakes, but not with Metropolis Caffe. Here you will find the best and fresh ingredients used for making the shakes. They taste perfect and do not contain unnecessary preservatives of sugar.

Curly fries are my favorite and Metropolis Caffe cooks them to perfection each time. I have been returning to this place for this delicacy and have also discovered their delightfully delicious hot chocolate which with its soft texture and melted icing is just a piece of heaven when put inside the mouth.

Coffee a little mediocre but the apple pie was the draw card. Nice appeal, but maybe time for a make over. Staff were friendly and helpful. Still worth the visit.

went here for breakfast, big mistake, the food took a ridiculous time to arrive and when it did it was swimming in grease, ordered the healthy breakfast, it was anything but, save yourself the hassle, time and expense and find another café !!!!!!

Food was nice, waitress was lovely but we were shocked when the manager did not allow us to use our Entertainment Guide book card. They had a ambiguous menu and argued that the customer (us) were in the wrong. In fact they went completely against the Rules of Use of the Entertainment guide book

Metropolis has been around for some time in central Hamilton, and in more recent years changed hands. Metropolis was once known for its funky atmosphere featuring a welcomed BYO, great service and affordable but quite good food. This is not how it stands today. The landscape looks the same. Some menu items still remain, less the express menu (which was... More

English does not seem to be a first language for the stuff (that are kiwis). I asked what is the biggest CUP the could do a coffee in, she holds up a glass. Excuse me girl, get a dictionary. Then I ask for chocolate cake heated up nice and hot (so the icing melts). What do I get? Cake the... More
