Eight of us had a very nice brunch here. The food was very good, I was impressed with the service in between two huge tables. The food was very good, the coffee wasn't. It is a very nice venue, especially on a good weather day

Stopped here for lunch and it's more than just a cafe. Loved the gift shop and the surrounding gardens, the Wisteria was in full bloom too. Staff are super friendly and we both enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich. I am looking forward to next time.

We go to The Olde Creamery at least twice a year on our visits to Hamilton, usually for afternoon tea but, when time permits, for lunch. Food, ambience, friendliness (including humour), service and music selection (never too loud) can not be faulted.

Thank davnz
