My wife and I decided, on the spur, to drop into Williams Cafe, down by Hamilton Harbour on a beautiful warm October afternoon. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a fabulous luncheon. I ordered the turkey waldorf wrap, which was delicious and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her order of the strawberry feta salad. We enjoyed a glass of... More

Stopped for lunch on a beautiful day. Sat outside and enjoyed a fabulous bowl of soup. we had two different types and both were excellent. Very reasonable price and just the best location.

Here visiting Toronto for the first time, had to stop off at William's, after The Hop on an off Tour by sightseeing.com. The food is great, wanted everything on the menu but had to settle for a 3 egg omlette. Was not disappointed, it was lovely and the atmosphere is pleasant. A lovely stop, after the boat tour of the... More

I go to Williams often as it is a beautiful window to the bay and there is always something going on. The cafe itself is very busy, has a diverse menu, and can accommodate strollers and walkers - washrooms are fairly easy to access. Sometimes the food is good, but often it is mediocre... but the location is fantastic and... More

This Williams is in a great location, has good service and there are many food choices. I have met clients and friends here often. Only one suggestion, given that a large tea or a medium tea just means more hot water, why the difference in price?

The coffee is so bad here. It literally is undrinkable. It tastes burnt and the food sucks. They really need to clean up their game it is a coffee house after all. The location is great and I like coming but I literally eat and drink coffee before I come. It's that bad.

I really enjoy William's! The locations great but the WiFi isn't the best. They have good muffins, desserts and warm beverages.

My favourite food from Williams is the breakfast wraps. They are about $5 and you can get it with bacon and cheese or with roasted red pepper and spinach(this wrap really needs feta cheese). The coffee is good. There are pastries available but expensive. I love sitting in the leather sofas near the fire place especially in the winter. There... More

Stopped by here for a quick lunch and ended up staying 2 hours! Lots of free parking, easy access to the building for all. This is an order at the counter and have brought to the table type of restaurant. We had a Chipotle Turkey Panini and a BLT Sandwich with a side of Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle dip... More
