From the few places I found in Hamilton with good breakfast. It's been 2 years since the only place that I was enjoying my breakfast has been sold and I was very pleased to find a place that the breakfast actually taste like food and not like plastic. Sometimes they overcook the bacon but still it taste like bacon!

Decided to visit this restaurant after reading it's great reviews online. Lots of intriguing dishes on the menu, a spin on the classics. Service was good, and the restaurant was always full, usually with a line. We didn't have to wait for a table, but unfortunately were seated at a table full of other patrons. Knocking elbows with the stranger... More

It was a cold day when we visited, and I understand they may have tried to correct this issue with the "curtain" around the door but unfortunately it isnt good enough. We were seated at the bar first, everytime the door opened we froze. We asked to be seated at a table, and were graciously obliged! thank you. The staff... More

Overall, this spot is quite nice. We went in on a Saturday and found a table almost immediately. My girlfriend and I had the Morning Hash and it was great! The atmosphere is definitely relaxed, which would be nice for Sunday brunch. High recommended!

Popped into Papa Leo's for a late breakfast. I ordered the Mediterranean 3 Egg Omlet, my husband ordered the Local. And as we waited, we enjoyed some great coffee...apparently from a local coffee roaster... The wait was worth it, as our meals came piping hot. Flavourful, fresh, just the right amount of serving. I particularly like that diners receive one... More

Had breakfast here and I managed to get a seat at the counter. It's not a very large dining area, but it has enough seating for quite a few people. I had the " papas eggs" and it was very good with the sweet chorizo sausage option. The presentation was good as was other food I observed emerging from the... More

This Consession street beauty earns top marks for the quality, originality and flavour fest of its food. The Mediterranean inspired touch adds a layer of awesome to almost every dish. Great cup of coffee can be had here too.
