The coffee was really good at good strength. Muffin had lots of veges in it but was gluggy maybe slightly undercooked. The cafe had nice looking cabinet food. Would try again. I guess I should have mentioned it to staff.

Stopped in for a coffee with my partner and a friend. I hadn't been here before, partner had been a few times. Coffee was good, nice quirky furniture and atmosphere. Didn't have anything to eat but food looked good

An enjoyable breakfast from friendly and efficient staff, a pleasant atmosphere and quick turn around time. I had amazing poached eggs with one of there home made hash browns, after a recommendation from a friend. A must go to for breakfast when in hamilton.

Stopped in for lunch, ordered from the cabinet, great selection of savory and sweet. Self confessed coffee snobs, we were not disapointed, great coffee. Great customer service.

Nice place for brunch on a rainy day so you don't mind sitting inside (which is comfortable and well decorated but a little cosy). They have outdoor seating but it is on the main drag so not the most peaceful location. Food is good quality...More
