If Hazel Hayes food and cafe is anything like the staff who work there it will be fabulous! Sophie and her team mates dealt beautifully with me as we conversed between Dunedin and Hamilton with a booking. They were attentive and caring. I felt that I was important and listened to. Sophie went out of her way to help me. I found this to be refreshing and I definately recommend Hazel Hayes and am looking forward to one day being in the same town to experience the service and food. Well done Hazel Hayes!!!!

This place has a really good reputation and I met a friend for lunch, she had a wrap and a gluten free caramel slice. She said the wrap was AMAZING but didn’t finish the slice. I eat vegan and they didn’t have anything vegan in the cabinet on the day I visited so offered to make me a ‘roast vege salad’ with a minimum of fuss. I paid $13.60 for a coffee and the salad, which was cooked pumpkin, rocket and balsamic vinegar. The coffee and staff were nice and I would try it again, but $9(?) for a salad which was essentially lettuce and pumpkin was possibly a tiny bit steep?

coffee is really good, so is the food. Only a couple of whingy points: Their was a fly in the cold food cabinet the first time I went in which put me off the food (although have eaten there before and food tasted great!) and secondly had a socially awkward man serve me at the counter..which is not really a biggie…

Amazing cafe, staff are always friendly and the food is beautiful. I am in love with their fantastic range of cabinet salads that are always packed full of flavor and very innovative. I cannot fault this cafe and always look forward to sharing brekie/lunch with friends there. Mmmm must go for lunch today!

I have just been in Hamilton for the Rugby World Cup. It was so crowded that we wandered down Vic St to Hazel Hayes for Breakfast, WOW what a magnificant brekkie. My friend and I have raved about it since returning to Christchurch. If we had a Cafe like this in Christchurch I would be a regular. Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and awesome food, outstanding. “LUCKY HAMILTON”

I went for breakfast for the first time and was instantly impressed. The setting is crisp and clean but homely and comfy. They have done a really thoughtful job on the decor. I love the style. I’m not sure why one person has commented negatively about the coffee and the food as it was flawless and SO tasty and full of ‘love’ we could not stop talking about it ALL DAY! The meals were not only delicious but they were substantial – and I have a big appetite. Great value for money. The coffee was so good I could have easily had another – if I wasn’t so full!! Will definitely be going back – LOVED IT!!

The scones are to die for! My fave is the black bean version. Sampled the tomato chili jam with cumin seed gouda the other day and it was also delicious. Love the mini iced lemon loaves. Miss the Cinnamon Oysters, but understand they weren’t a top seller. Also love the Coffee Fudge slice.

I went there yesterday and was sadly disappointed with the food and the coffee. My half strength mocha was so strong i couldnt drink it. The food was tasteless and the people i brought with me left their meals without eating them. It was a complete waste of money.

Hazel Hayes is amazing! Every thing i have ever tried on the menu has been delicious. All the little touches make it not just nice but WOW! A little twist on all your favourites – caramel slice with cashews! Shut up! Amazing! The muesli with honeycomb – and were those pomegranate seeds? (bursts of delight in my mouth) is highly recommended. The coffee rocks my socks off. And the awesome setting with cool tables and chairs, plus the quaint teaspoons and sugar cubes. Great for kids too – with chalk boards to draw on and toy cars for table numbers! Everything they make is so fresh and full of flavour. You can tell someone is putting their heart and soul into their family owned cafe and it is really paying off. A very talented chef. Plus their catering looks amazing – def will get them to cater my next event! Get in there now!!
