Picked up some very good takeaway coffees from here a few days ago, and the place was packed- always a good sign- so went back today for breakfast. Good choice- really good coffees and shared the chorizo and corn fritter breakfast, certainly one serve was enough for both of us to share. Really delicious. Service super friendly and efficient.

Located opposite Hamilton railway station, good option for catching a coffee before the train. The food is good and the bacon and egg rolls which are large and freshly made are a standout

We needed breakfast and coffee before an early morning train from Hamilton. Coffee was excellent, food was good, service great. Good price too.

Just as the title states - the coffee is always pretty good. The staff are friendly enough and the wait is usually nothing at all.

After a long morning disembarking from a cruise then catching the central coast train from Sydney to Newcastle needed to fill the hole quickly. The Rolador is immediately outside the Hamilton Station. We were very quickly given a table outside, menus provided and given time to digest the very interesting menu. From standard bekky fare to hmmm that sounds interesting!... More

I went with my two boys. We had Breakfast Burritos which were delicious. The staff are friendly. Sometimes it's difficult to find a table but it's worth the effort. It's a good menu at reasonable prices right next to Hamilton Train Station

Place has a funky, trendy, Melbourne-like vibe. Decor is cool, chai is tasty. Food prices are very reasonable for the area but my brekky burritos was nothing special. Literally just a rasher of bacon with some plain scrambled egg (no herbs or added spices) roled up in a warm wrap. The menu stated that it came with tomato relish, but... More
