Home style food and plenty of it; coffee was so-so so hit a coffee stand for a fill up of the thermo.

The restaurant has changed ownership since I have last been there and you definitely tell. I went there for breakfast expecting the usual quality of homemade jam, fresh hot delicious coffee, and a good breakfast. I was sadly disappointed. The jam was Smuckers, the coffee was horrible and lukewarm, and my hashbrowns were cold and not the yummy red potatoes... More

Nice downtown Hamilton restaurant. The stairs are a pain but it's worth the cardiac exercise. I highly recommend the berry crepes!

We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch and it was very good. We called ahead expecting a wait but there was none for our party of 7. We arrived and the table was setup for us. The best kept secret in Hamilton. Will definitely visit again.

Berry crepes were berry cream cheese filled, light and lacy. The french toast, sliced from crusty, soft baguettes were a cinnamon surprise. The thick sliced bacon was perfectly done. Sit next to a window and watch the town wake up. It was a beautiful morning.

My first visit was with a friend that had been to the previous Loft before it closed and reopened. Neither of us were very impressed with our lunch; she had a specialty grilled cheese that was not so special and I had a chicken salad sandwich that had too many grapes and other odd items in it for my taste....

I've written 300+ reviews, and darn few 5 stars. I would give the Loft 6 stars for the omelet! The other dishes were good, but I had the best omelet I've had in many years, maybe ever. Described as a 3 ingredient omelet, I ordered the ham (DO NOT MISS THE HAM), bacon and spinach. What I got was a... More

Open under new management. HUGE flapjacks, very fluffy. Eggs cooked as I asked. Bacon crispy, just as I requested. Real coffee, not glorified goat piss. Friendly staff. Lunch menu looks great too! Give 'em a try for breakfast or lunch. CLOSED TUESDAYS!!! Open every other day though.

There is clearly a master chef working here and breakfast should have been excellent but our experience was undone by a freezing cold space, luke warm food and terrible service. When we walked in a server passed us by and mumbled for us to take a seat. There were nine families there when we walked in a none of them... More
