Great coffee, fantastic food.

Scotts Epicurean is an award winning cafe-restaurant delivering an eclectic menu, luscious desserts and quality espresso made by the city's best baristas. Founded by siblings Jason and Mandy Scott, Scotts Epicurean has been one of Hamilton’s foremost cafes since first opening its doors in 2000. Since then Scotts has firmly established itself as one of New Zealand’s best cafes.  

Located in an iconic heritage building in the south end of Hamilton’s Victoria Street, the team at Scotts are legendary for their friendly, highly professional service. Voted 'Best Cafe' (5 years running) in the Waikato Times Readers Choice Award, Scotts Epicurean continues to stay 'head and shoulders' above the rest. But don’t just take our word for it: 

"This gorgeous joint features swanky leather banquettes, pressed-tin ceilings, great coffee and an interesting and affordable menu: try the sweet orange breakfast couscous or the ever-popular spaghetti Aglio e olio. Service is friendly, it’s fully licensed, and a charming outdoor area beckons in the warmer months."  Lonely Planet

"The perfect choice for a quiet breakfast and coffee on a Sunday morning. Coffee was perfecto made and fast to the table. Our two vegetarian breakfasts were awesome and I’d love more of their pesto. In the end, service was great, coffee and food were great, and the garden patio the perfect place to spend an early morning." Adrian (Menu Mania)
