These guys are tops as far as cafes go. It’s a clear Hamiltonian local hot spot, and I could easily see why after I tried one of their delish hot chocolates and crepes. Anyone travelling through Hamilton should attempt a coffee/lunch stop there. Definitely a 10/10 in my books.

Good cooffee

My favourite place to go for breakfast and lunch! Great food at great prices! The customer service is excellent and you can choose to sit Inside or outside in the sun. 10/10

The mushrooms for brekkie! Te namunamuā hoki :) #darkhorse

Great food , great atmosphere. Main stay of Hamiltonian cafe culture and consistently a great cup of joe.

best place for coffee and cake xo

Tuck yourself away from the busy street in this long narrow cafe, and tuck into high quality, delicious food. An award winning spot where you’ll find great coffee and a range of classic brunch options, each with something a little different. Start the day sweet and try the crepes with passion fruit curd, banana, cinnamon mascarpone and toasted coconut or go savoury with ‘Green Eggs and Ham’!

Great place for coffee and food. Dont miss Hamilton's best coffee!

Great place to grab a bite to eat in the city
