    I enjoy dining at Hamlet. Prices are a little high but the food and coffee is good and the staff are delightful. However, I was disappointed to be informed on a recent visit, that they had made a rather petty decision to restrict their coffee loyalty card to only takeaway coffees. Seems a little mean-spirited.

    Soup was tasteless but the cafe didn’t charge us for it which was nice. Supposedly zucchini and pumpkin but couldn’t see or taste the pumpkin just watery zucchini with too much oil dressing on top. Probably won’t go again though as the coffee was nice but lukewarm despite them being very quiet. As one of us was vegan the menu is sadly disappointing. The vegan peanut noodle dish last time we went had egg noodles as a substitute but no one told me until after I’d starting eating it. Ok for a quick coffee if you can get a hot one and a real shame as Stanley St the sister cafe has higher standards. The young waitress was standout though even though none of the issues were her fault she was very understanding.

    It was so good to have a really sharp knife to cut the bread for my smashed avocado. Thankyou for a very pleasant morning, quiet enough for us to catch up after some time not being able to get together

    Doors and coffee was really good, was just a little disappointed that on arrival there was no table reserved for us and prepared (given I had booked for 9people quite a few days ago) and arrived when there were not many people there.

    Although the food was good and so was the service, the noise level inside was not! The music was too loud and the hard surfaces meant that the chatter of other diners was very loud - this does not make for a pleasant experience when you have to raise your voice to speak to your dining companion. We recommend sitting outside unless you like a lot of noise.

    Nice looking place, staff good, food ok. However, coffee was cold. Toast very hard to cut. Scrambled eggs a bit bland. Porridge was overpowered by ginger flavour. Smashed avo was good. Would try other dishes next time and request extra hot coffee.

    Great vibe and generally good food. Waffles however were disappointing. Very dry and grainy waffles and sour banana cream did not go. Best to go backs and keep it simple. Also venue not good for dining in a group due to no split bills.

    Loved the place! Have been to their sister company Stanley and that too was amazing! The only let down was that upon entering we waited for someone to greet us for a good few mins while staff just walked past us seeming too busy to check if we had a reservation or were just waiting for coffees. Once seated experience was lovely!

    We absolutely love Hamlet - it’s our ‘go to’ any day of the week. The smashed avo is incredible & your gluten free toast is the best ever! Our only issue is that the music can sometimes be too loud & distracting, especially with older company who have trouble hearing conversations. Otherwise it’s an absolute delight to eat at.

    Booked this place after looking online for a suitable place for brunch for my mum, auntie and I. We sat outside on the deck and each table there had a gas heater, which was fabulous for dining outside in winter. Food was lovely, atmosphere was really nice and the staff were pleasant to deal with. I’m sure it won’t be our only visit.
