A thin sliver of a place right on Victoria Street. The food, service and coffee here are just great. Breakfast, in particular, is very good here. A fabulous stopping off point to rest your feet if it's been a long day shopping or visiting sights around Hamilton.

The option of a seat in the sun outside is very amazing, and we loved it! We also appreciated it being a cafe that came and took your order rather than go and order and sit down kind of cafe! The Coffee was a major let down. We asked for a flat white and got served a latte and also... More

Quirky food titles but dedicated to excellence. Drinks are also good especially the coffee. Often have very high quality wine by the glass. This can sometimes fool the unknowledgeable who wonder why they are paying so much for a glass of wine

My coffee order was sorted and promptly on the way and I had a delicious breakfast - the healthy breakfast with bagel egg humus and pesto - yum! It looked like a place locals go to and the staff knew... More

The coffee was okay, but I was a little bit disappointed that they forget my order. My friends' coffee and dessert were all coming 15mins before me and the staff were standing there chatting with each other. So my friends and I were supposed that they forgot my order and they served me the coffee after I double checked with... More

Fabulous food, great atmosphere but the best aspect is the happy, friendly staff. A must do place if you come to Hamilton. And that's saying something as Hamilton has a number of great places to eat, drink coffee and sit.

This is one of my favourite eating establishments in the Hamilton CBD. Reminiscent of a New York café, great service and food!
