Top restaurants

Restaurant
“With a large outdoor area in amongst the brewing tanks, the Dining Hall is the perfect spot for enjoying a glass of beer in the sunshine. Good George’s menu is crafted to match the beers, and their award winning ‘Blue Me, I’m Irish’ burger has gone on to receive popular acclaim. Proudly Hamilton, proudly Waikato - these enthusiasts are local favourites and community heroes. People gather a few times a week for confession, under the stained glass windows depicting hops and beer.”

“Sometimes after a busy week at work, the last thing you feel like doing is facing the city again for an evening meal or after hours drink. However, the suburbs of East Hamilton now have a hub of their own. Hayes Common is bringing delicious, wholefood cuisine right to the neighbourhood with flair, style and good taste.”

Café
“Jump straight into a Vietnamese inspired eatery on Hamilton’s main street in the form of Banh Mi Caphe. Come evening time the music is loud, the tables are packed and the atmosphere is buzzing. Appealing to young and old, dates, groups and solo eaters, tables and brightly coloured stools are packed close together, transporting you straight to street side in South East Asia. A licenced restaurant, there’s beer and wine and a seductive sounding cocktail list, or house made smoothies and sodas. Steaming, vibrant plates of food piled high are delivered quickly by easy-going staff, and made for sharing - you’ll need to guard your portion carefully if you wish to have it all to yourself. Try the famous Vietnamese baguette with pork, chicken, beef or tofu, or dig into the delicious green papaya salad with prawns and finish it off with spring rolls or save room for the sweets at the end. Recipes have been carefully passed down from generation to generation, all the way from Can Tho to Waikato, and the fresh, healthy and truly tasty dishes are worth traveling for.”

Bakery
“There’s standing room only at this popular bakery, where bread and sweets fly out the door from 7:30am onwards. Spice up your usual bakery experience with creative takes on old classics. A busy coffee machine sees the caffeine-needy through the day, or choose an alternative from the cold drinks fridge. Baked onsite, the bread is worth trekking over town for, and only those in quick will get their hands on the town-famous Volare grain bread; latecomers will have to settle with the next best - ciabatta, turkish loaves or brioche bread to name a few. The cabinet stocks some of the aforementioned bread in the form of chunky and wholesome sandwiches, and sweet eaters will be tempted by some of the best cookies in town, crispy danishes or even Volare’s very own take on a cronut. Well-loved by locals, this expert bakery gives back to it’s community by donating excess food to Kaivolution - a food rescue service passing on excess to those who need it most.”
