Stopped by the inn this past Saturday for brunch before touring this charming town. Lucas (great guy) recommended the brunch burger (see pic) which was awesome... wife got some avocado egg thingie (see pic). I guess they’re also known for the chicken and waffles. We are inside because it was 90 degrees out. Beautiful classic decor... now we want to stay at the inn this fall!

I'm happy to say that the food here has improved 100%! We ate here 2 years ago and found the food mediocre at best, so we were hesitant to try it again. Happily, everyone in our party of 5 loved their dishes: - fried calamari appetizers: nice and crisp without being oily - scallops with bacon jam and risotto: perfectly cooked scallops with the right amount of bacon jam; wonderful risotto (fyi: risotto contains minced onions) - the 2 steaks were prepared well - the 2 duck dinners won rave reviews I'm looking forward to dining here when I'm in town again in Autumn 2021!

I believe the Colgate Inn is the only lodging in Hamilton, and they do it up, although several services/places were closed or severely restricted because of Covid-19. The front desk staff was very friendly and the (abbreviated?) breakfast satisfied two very different palates well.
