Eat, drink and enjoy at these three can’t miss Hamilton cafes. They are not only dishing up the goods but completely conquering the cafe scene.
Tosca Browns; renowned to the locals and loved by the visitors. Serving up breakfast, brunch and lunch on a daily with consistent excellence and flair. Their ever-changing menu adapts to not only the seasons but also the local produce availability. Tosca’s varietal menu will have you pondering with sweet anticipation as to what will be next; a wintery rice and quinoa porridge or a sensational coconut chia pudding. Other favourite food features have included (but certainly not limited to) mushies and polenta, creamy smashed avos, decadently stacked waffles, smoked eel croquettes, fried chicken bao buns, sweet potato fritters, middle eastern salad and so many more!
You can match your breakfast/brunch/lunch with a range of drinks; the always-pleasing coffee, fresh juices or feeling a little fancy, how about a glass of champagne or an espresso martini? Dine-in or opt for the outdoors with balcony, beer garden or courtyard areas offered.
Jack + Jude
Meet Jack + Jude; a very hip and cool cafe of Hamilton. Rocking a scrumptious seasonal menu and daily specials, these guys dish up something special. Their breakfast menu is laden with eggs every way; folded, poached, fried, scrambled and their lunch menu includes plated feasts (burgers, pasta, slow-cooked meats, fresh seafood) or tasty-tapas style samplings (pulled pork slider, baked scallop, steamed bun, arancini). Complement your breakfast/brunch/lunch with a cup of their sophisticatedly selected coffee supplier, Seven Miles Belaroma Octavia Coffee.
Jack + Jude consciously and actively look to maintain (and hopefully restore) their environment with various environmentally-friendly practices in place including biodegradable containers and cups, paper strawers and limiting their food miles by utilising local suppliers for their products and produce. And again, like their above cafe counterparts, watch the socials with these funky folks, they love to indulge their cool customers with themed dining nights.
With a passion for coffee and a spirit for their community, The Roxburgh came to be. This family-run cafe is housed within an exquisite two-storey bluestone building and also spreads out into an adjoining laneway, affording customers ample dining options. The inside scene is that of opulence and comfort; plush couches to sink into whilst sipping on your latte, a crackling open fireplace to warm up in front of when the colder weather hits. The exterior is a hubbub in the warmer months when live music is regularly featured in the laneway.
And the food and drink! Let’s not forget that and you certainly won’t at the Roxburgh House. Their menu is laden with tastes and treats; decadent hot chocolates made with Lindt chocolate, house-made pizza topped with fresh and flavourful toppings, comforting tea brewed from T2’s extensive range, traditional toasties, lavish platters of cheeses and dips, a locally-embracing wine selection and so much more!
Tosca Browns, Jack + Jude and The Roxburgh; three superlative cafes that Hamilton is so very happy (and proud) to call their locals.
