great food but the tables were too close together before covid, and now they are way too close. I don't need to near the conversation from the next table, particularly when they are even trying to be discreet.

I frequent both Locke St. and James only because I like the food. The noise level in both locations is terrible!! You have to lean across the table to hear each other.

I was disappointed with my table as it was very close to a large group. I asked to have another table (3 choices) and was told they were reserved. By the end of my meal 2 tables were still empty. I also had a reservation but was not allowed to change tables. There was no reason that I could not have had one of those tables. The food was fabulous though. I will give them that!

The service was good, when we entered they tried to put us at a table next to the front hostess desk when the rest of the restaurant was empty, the food was so so the pizza was doughy not cooked right through. I put in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday but nothing was done or said about it, why bother to ask.

We chose it because it appeared on a list of top brunch places in Hamilton. The great reputation is well deserved. The brunch menu was incredible, every option sounded delicious. The ones we chose were all delicious! We also loved the decor.

Bread Bar never disappoints — but this visit was especially good. Took my visiting parents, who thought the pizza (Bee Sting, Meat Mountain) might be the best they’ve eaten.

This place is AWESOME!! Great vibe, excellent service and AMAZING food! You can tell the people who cook the food are passionate about what they do. We tried the Brussels sprouts, cheeseburger w fries and Quinoa burger w kale Caesar salad. All. Were. Delicious. We will be going back for sure. Highly recommend! :)

Diverse and intriguing menu selections delivered as deliciously described with knowledgable wait staff. Ambience supported conversation. Order came in a timely fashion. The unique apple/bacon pizza was a taste treat for each of us. Will become our regular celebration location in Hamilton.

Absolutely delish! First time visiting & will definitely return soon. Club sandwich & truffle fries were fantastic - piping hot & so flavourful. The really really Fudgy brownie for dessert was terrific too. My dining partner loved their Buddha Bowl & cheesecake. Our server Alicia was awesome too. Great experience!

Love this place! Between this location or the Locke St one, we have never had a bad experience in any respect, whether the food or service.

Amazing fresh food, good portions and priced very well for this level of eatery.

Only thing I wish to see is a better veggie bowl topping. I have had the bowl before and it's amazing, but the topping choices are either meat or mushrooms. I'd get the bowl everytime if it had a choice of a grilled piece of tofu on top. Minor complaint only!

We will always come back!

We can’t thank you guys enough for such a fantastic night out. This was our first time in a restaurant in almost a year. From checking in at the door to table service to food everything was perfect. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We got the calamari and mussels as an appetizer, my kids were even raving about these. For the main meal we got burgers and fries/ loaded fries and bee sting and jerk pizza. I can’t say enough about how tasty all the food was. My kids rated their fries number 1 out of all places they’ve been (apparently way better than McDonalds which we agree with them on this one !!!) thank you again for such an amazing evening. We will for sure be back.
