Visited this cafe based on raving reviews and it did not disappoint! I had the vegan soul bowl which was less than 15$ and too big to finish. Plenty of friendly staff to help and a large cafe space with outdoor eating area.

Stopped here after reading reviews and wasn't disappointed. Divine breakfast of Eggs Bene and creamy mushrooms. Yum. Great coffee and quick friendly service. Don't miss this place if in Hamilton.
