After a rather challenging morning, I was after a pub lunch and my sisters husband took us to Scotts Epicurean. Much nicer than a pub lunch and absolutely worth it. Not only was the food delicious but the service was so friendly and accommodating. Our table had the Spinach & Watercress Salad, Sri Lankan Chicken Curry, Asparagus & Fennel Tabbouleh... More

Great everything cafe. Food is nice, coffee is outstanding and the people are great. It's a nice little place that's pretty busy most of the time. I've had a few Sunday lunches here and always enjoyed it. Fantastic.

Dave is the best Barista is Hamilton. Scotts was great for food and coffee before anyone else and continues to be great. This is a Wellington standard cafe in Hamilton. Others are catching up but it is still number one. We go there almost weekly but we regularly try out other cafes on travel and around town when it suits... More

I have been here several times and have always enjoyed the warm welcome from the staff. I recently had lunch here with a couple of my friends. The menu is small but it has such a diverse selection. We all ordered something different - curry, salad and sandwich. I really enjoyed my salad - it was fresh and the ingredients... More

Went there for Sunday brunch, the food was really average and very heavy, not sure what sort of cooking oil they use. But what will make us never go back is the service: had to ask for some tap water twice. The first time we were told they had run out of glasses. The second time I was rudely told... More

When we arrived for brunch on a cold Sunday morning the café was very busy but a table was soon found for us, though too close to the frequently opening door! The thoughtful waitress quickly brought us a warming coffee while we deliberated over the extensive menu. I enjoyed the savoury chorizo, potato,egg dish & hubby went for the sweet... More

Lovely Sunday lounge in the sun with a great coffee. Staff were very friendly and attentive. All the food looked delicious. Next time I'm in Hamilton I will definitely be there for breakfast.

I was there for breakfast with a group of friends. Food was great. A comfortable place to chat and have meals. I love their hot chocoloate and aglio olio. Definitely will return again
