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.

Stopped in for breakie with a few friends, service was welcoming and prompt; drinks served quickly and the food followed within ten minutes of ordering. Had the 'Green eggs and ham', very nice, price a mere $14.50! With tea the total 'damage' was $17.50, a reasonable cost for a great breakfast. It was obviously a popular spot as the place... More

This is where I take out of towers for their introduction to Hamilton and it's food. The Tron gets a bad rap sometimes by out of towners that haven't really explored the place. Scott's food and service is consistently first class. I take business guests here if the mission is primarily to eat good food and drink the best coffee... More

Walked past late evening and decided to stop by after our early morning walk. Enjoyed a great coffee and good chat with the owner Scott.

Ive been having breakfasts, lunches and coffee here for a decade. Unlike most good cafe's which seem to drop in standard over time, Scotts have held their standards and never ever slipped - one of the best in the land
