“Doing it right...”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Delicious brunch, excellent latté, great music, chill vibe, and just four blocks away from home. How much better can it get?

Ottawa St deserves The Cannon, and plenty more like it.

“Shiny Happy Coffee”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Just thinking about The Cannon makes me smile. It's a fairly new addition to the up and coming Ottawa Street strip east of downtown Hamilton. There is (thankfully) nothing gentrified about Ottawa Street, a mix of textile stores, farmers market, art galleries and foam outlets. It's funky, weird and truly Steeltown blue collar. The Cannon is an honest to goodness independent coffee shop that serves wickedly good small morning meals like herb infused waffles and cheddar lime scones. It is a small operation, with a half dozen tables, a couple of toaster ovens, friends' artwork on the walls and DIY decor -- and it is amazing! No one is wearing a uniform or pushing a CD promotion at the cash register. There is genuine care and attention in the individually brewed and diffused drinks that don't stream out of a $10,000 Gaggia machine. Inventive, independent and a fabulous place to hang out on a lazy Sunday morning.
