My favourite restaurant in Hamilton, but this visit was disappointing. Took forever to be served. Pizza seemed undercooked and was the worst slice job of a pizza I've ever seen. Some slices were slivers and others were gigantic. Hoping this was the one and only bad experience. Will still be back.

The service from our server was very good but the food was SO slow to come.. This is my second visit and kitchen was SLOW. 45 minutes to have our meals to our table is just not acceptable, I was a server for 16 years and would have been mortified. The noise level is also incredibly loud and this combined with the kitchen issues would make me not want to visit again. I will say our server was incredibly nice and knowledgeable and thee cidergria was lovely. There just seems to be no urgency

Love bread bar! Normally you can’t get a reservation at the Locke location so being able to reserve and not wait at James was amazing!

Went there on the 22nd of September. What a fab experience. The variety for brekki was plentiful, interesting and fresh. Theres a buffet spread of breads/salads/cheese/fruit and you can order from a select menu as well. The menu items come out in tapas style and it's all very speedy.

Cannot wait to go back again!

We really enjoyed our visit to Earth To Table. The restaurant was modern and very clean. The food and service was great. Beware, portions sizes are large. :) But that’s a good thing! We will be back.

This was our second visit to the Bread Bar on our most recent visit to Hamilton. It was great! We had booked for 2 then met some friends on the walk over. They happily accommodated that larger group. The food was amazing and our server, William, outstanding. We’ll likely go back again later this fall when our daughter graduates from MAC. Thanks Bread Bar for a fun evening!😀👍

Very impressed with the aesthetics of the new location, especially the lighting and decor. The food and service were very good as always... However, for much of our dinner, we were unable to have a conversation due to the excessive noise levels... definitely detracting from the overall dining experience

I had ordered a beer off of the menu that the waitress wasn’t sure was in stock. She suggested the feature beer of the evening, noting that it was on special. What I was not informed of was that the price of the ‘on special’ drink in comparison to the one I had ordered was more than double. When I got the bill I was absolutely shocked to see I was charged $16 for my drink. Although I appreciate the drink suggestion, I would have thought the waitress stay in the same price range as the drink I was ordering. The food was delicious and came out fast, but the service was slow, the table was small and the atmosphere was loud. Would come back for the food, but be smarter to check what I’m ordering.

Everything was excellent except for the noise level. Too "energetic" Very difficult to carry on a conversation. The restaurant needs some kind of noise reduction system.

Food was incredible. Not expensive.
But the restaurant was very loud. They need to look into some sound deadening material.

We had been to Bread Bar before, but never for their Sunday brunch, which is just delightful. There is a nice selection of prepared foods including salads, pizza and yogurts, together with a brunch menu of many little plates. This is a lovely, fun way to try a lot of different things, and to get excellent value. Stand outs include the steak and eggs, the French toast pudding and the Biscuits and Gravy, which was a big hit with my crowd.

Not an inexpensive outing, particularly with kids, but everyone left feeling extremely satisfied, and looking forward to the next visit.

The Bread Bar on James St is a totally different experience from Locke St. A more upscale feel. The food is always more than I can eat. The only down side is that it is a little on the loud side and tables can feta little close. All in all a great eatery

I continue to regret thje unavailability of anything but craft beer. It would be much better if you included an European draft such as Stella, Moretti, Heinekin, Peroni etc. - or Saporo.
Also your cheeseburger wasn't up to its previous taste - very greasy.

This is one of the best restaurants that I have eaten at. The food is divine and the service is second to none. I never had any issues with our food and the server was always around to refill water and ensure that everything was okay. I don't live in Hamilton, but if I did, I would eat here regularly.
