After a major revamp the broken down Hydro is now Hayes Common. The new owners have realized the full potential of this cool site. New menu, Good George on tap friendly staff. Best thing to happen to it

We stopped in for lunch. There weren't many other people in the restaurant, but our coffee took 20 mins to arrive. I ordered avocado smash, when it arrived it appeared to be a sauce dish with shop bought grey/green guacamole, half a tomato and 2 pieces of toasted Turkish bread which were about 2 inches long. I ate the tomato... More

A very popular place to eat, which provides organic dishes and vegetarian options near the Waikato River in Hamilton. It pays to book. The food is delicious and the prices mid range. Lovely for breakfast, lunch or brunch in the sun!

After a morning shopping in Ham East, we decided to nip down to the Hydro as my partner knew the previous owner and said it used to be magnificent. It's anything but now, and is a shadow of its former self. * Service: Friendly and efficient. * Decor: soul-less, deteriorating and downright tired. * Cleanliness: Seemed fine; toilets stank and...

Medium/large group. This cafe: 1. Forgot 3 drinks; 2. Didn't deliver 3 meals until reminded; 3. Took an hour to get all the meals; 4. Never checked we had all our drinks; 5. Never checked we were satisfied with our meals, nor actually HAD all our meals; 6. Didn't apologise when they realised meals were missing; 7. Said the drinks... More

Delicious hot chocolate and cheese scones in a nicely situated café on the north bank of the river, on the river walk.

AND not served with chips or any garnish at all.Will definately not be making a stop at this... More

Not been there for ages, very pleased we went for brunch today though. Creamy mushrooms on 5-grain toast with bacon & poached egg - yummy. The big breakfast option was a hit too, with plenty of bacon, chorizo, scrambled egg and toasted sour dough bread. Good coffee and perfect service topped it off. Looking forward to next time.

We went for a midweek lunch. Quite pricey, though the blackboard specials for the day were more reasonably priced we thought. Coffee was very average, wouldn't buy again. No peppermint tea available, but they didn't seem to care. The meals were served in good time and we were very happy with the portion size and taste. Friendly staff. Lovely outlook... More
