Stopped here for a quick cappucino with a friend and it was the best I have had in Hamilton. Staff were friendly and will be returning to try the delicious looking food.

Just love their food and their atmosphere. The old gentleman there I guess is the owner was very friendly. Staff are helpful and just cant stay away from their Tiramisu, which is the best I ever had! Yum.

This is a great place to pop in for a quick but delicious and different meal - they are famous for the Alioi Alioi and its pretty fantastic!

Scotts was recommended by a friend, along with the Aglio Olio pasta. Superb! So good I went back the next day for more. They also serve Tea Total loose leaf tea, which is a huge plus too. Wonderful cakes available, but I resisted the temptation. They have a section to the back of the cafe, which is a nice place... More

I chose the healthy breakfast with salmon. So delicious. Generous portion of salmon; perfectly soft boiled egg. Delicious bagel. Nice salad. Great service and OK coffee. Not a great fan of Allpress, but it was OK.

Very good food, the Pad Thai was excellent with a brilliant combination of spices. Green eggs and ham was very good as well. Couldn't fault the food for an easy tasty late lunch. Nice to have on the drinks menu lemon, honey and ginger which was excellent with the spices of the Pad Thai although may have been just a... More

Scotts makes the best vanilla latte in Hamilton. Love going there to get my fix. They once had an amazing tiramisu cheesecake that I don't think they do often. That was simply bliss. Overall a must try in Hamilton.

I feel a bit embarrassed to be recommending a restaurant based on a single dish but I have been here 3 times in the past couple of years and have had the same thing every time : Aglio Olio - Scotts’ famous & addictive spaghetti w chilli, garlic, parsley, olive oil & Italian parmesan. Actually that is their description but... More

Good coffee, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with attentive staff. Their specials often run out which is a good sign of freshness. Small but varied menu and cabinet food makes Scots the perfect place for a weekend brunch with friends
