My daughter and I had lunch. It was extremely busy so the only table was at the back. The waitress kept an eye out and moved us to a front table as soon as some others moved out. Food was amazing, as always and staff are exceptional. My daughter particularly loved the hot chocolate and the lemon cake I had... More

I loved the pasta dish - I forgot what it's called - and the price was very, very reasonable. The cakes are all lovely, and the coffee was perfect. I didn't have a favourite cafe in Hamilton until I tried Scotts last month. It's unusual for such a small cafe to have such spacious outdoor seating, but Scotts has a... More

I had heard great things for many years about this cafe so was glad to visit last week. My friend ordered first so when I came behind and found there was no decaf coffee I was stuck or I would have walked out. I had to order something so I chose hot chocolate which was OK but I far prefer... More

Ordered Scotts Lot the 'big breakfast' and was beyond disappointed with size of my meal. I noticed two items of the menu was missing from my plate. The waitress was very hesitant to take back my plate. Overall not impressed by the food or quality of service, I am writing this review with half the food still on my plate... More

I dined alone. Ordered scrambled eggs on toast. The eggs arrived with a single piece of dry toast 'plonked' on top of them. On lifting the toast I discovered the overcooked rather dry and sun tanned eggs cowering beneath. Just awful for any amount of money let alone their prices. The coffee was ok but certainly not the best in... More

I called in here for lunch. I was so amazed with the service from walking in and leaving. I had the soup with a glass of wine finished off with a coffee. VERY NICE.

Arrived just before 10:30 and finally had our order taken at 10:45. Waited over 50 minutes for our food to arrive and when it did, half of one of the meals was cold and the "chicken" in the other meal (chicken curry) only consisted of two small and boney peices of chicken. Some friends arrived as we ordered and decided... More

We were in Hamilton visiting an elderly relative and were looking for a relaxing lunch. It was late and we thought we had missed the closing deadline but the friendly staff at Scotts welcomed us and we were attended to promptly. The champagne we chose by the glass had lost its 'zing" but this was quickly rectified by the attentive... More

We stopped here for Sunday breakfast on a recent trip. Friendly staff, good food, very quick service, nice venue. I had the poached fruit and my sister had the healthy breakfast - both were very nice. Coffee was excellent.
