Best of the Brunch

Hamilton has seriously upped its brunch game in recent years with tons of options for late-morning feasting. From a delicious brunch at a Hamilton hotspot – Saint James Espresso Bar & Eatery to shared dishes like the Hungry Human Hangover at Nique, both conveniently located in downtown – Hamilton’s got your brunch fix. Here’s a full run-down from famous #HamOnt foodie @TasteHamOnt.  (Max Kerman of the Arkells highly recommends the sweet potato and avocado toast with at his neighbourhood coffee shop Salty Espresso).

Breweries

Hamilton’s once modest brewery scene has seen a big surge in recent years. Check out this impressive list of unique-to-Hamilton taprooms ready to pour you delicious brew – all in beautiful spaces.  In the heart of Downtown you will find Merit Brewing and to the north is Collective Arts – both well worth the trips!

Need caffeine?

Hamilton coffee scene has also come a long way since opening the first-ever Tim Hortons shop (still around today on Ottawa Street).  From slow pour-overs at Relay Coffee Roasters at Hamilton Farmers Market to New York Times-endorsed Smalls Coffee (both downtown), there’s always a great cup of coffee to be had.   Want more coffee tips?
