Call into for breakfast, first impression is that it must be OK as it's very busy when many of the other places that were around it seems quiet, recommended by a good friend so we gave it a go. Simple menu and selection of coffees, we had green eggs and ham?, and a potatoe sausage type dish which... read more

Went for lunch. Staff were very friendly with seating and ordering. Food was delicious from the lunch menu. I had the pad Thai very yummy. My friend had the curry and enjoyed that. Place was packed when others were empty in the area.

Was my favorite breakfast when in Hamilton but today never again. Forgot to make our coffees, served the wrong meal and just an awkward experience. The eggs for both of us were over cooked. Ate and ran.

This restaurant is perfect; delicious (specially the pasta), cheap and the service is very quick and friendly. The menu is quite small but everything is so good that they don't need more options. Perfect also for vegetarians.

I had to wait for my apartment to be ready to move in to, so I needed a place to sit for awhile, get online, and have a light meal. I couldn't have found a better place. The Aglio Ollio was great and the staff were warm and inviting and never made me feel like it iwas time for me... More

Stumbled upon Scott's by accident when passing through Hamilton. Luckily it was lunchtime and we treated ourselves to his 'seriously addictive spaghetti'. Which was absolutely delicious. Cooked perfectly. Lovely, fresh, flavoursome sauce couldn't have been happier. Great friendly atmosphere too.

We called in here while passing through Hamilton and had afternoon tea comprising a focaccia, mango cheesecake and coffee - all three were great and especially the cheesecake, and we'll certainly call in again.

This is the best place in Hamilton for breakfast. We always go. The choices are great and I recommend the healthy choices. I was disappointed yesterday to find cling wrap in my mouth (stuck to bagel). I didn't make a fuss but I did point it out to them. It would have been nice to have offered a discount to... More

Consistently good food and coffee. Staff are always pleasant and very good value for money. Good variety of food either off the menu or in the cabinet.

Enjoyed a lentil salad last week - fresh and tasty. Staff are mostly mature and all professional, meaning they have a confident but friendly manner and know that they're doing. Lovely menu, coffee was good, good selection of fruit/herbal teas and variety of seating options. Hedn't been for a few years but just as good as I remember. Please to... More
