Friendly and great service and food. Had the muesli which was good. Comfortable surrounds unlike some cafes where you’re sitting on hard seats. Thanks team.

Really yummy breakfast for two. So much better than most cafes by far. Loved the home made tomato relish which came with my excellent scrambled eggs.

Having been in NZ for 3 years now, I have done my fair share of coffee shop searching and I can honestly say that Cinnamon is right there at the top!! Super friendly staff, great food, super efficient service and obviously perfect coffee. Kudos to...all you guys😊😊More

I remember the cafe from coupe of years ago being my top 2 to go to in Hamilton. After my recent visit, I can see things are different. The atmosphere is a bit less vibrant and the dish I’ve ordered was below average - unfortunately....I must admit the staff was doing their best and I appreciated it very much. I hope this feedback will be taken as constructive 🙏More

Cinnamon is our “local” and we are proud to call it that. Great wholesome food, good coffee, and friendly and efficient service. Yesterday, being Valentines Day, the gave each customer a rose. How awesome is that. Love you guys.

Spur of the moment decided to stop in and take the 2 kids for breakfast. 2 burgers and one prawn taco. The burgers were below average, tasteless patty and very under seasoned and bland. Ice chocolates were watery and bland. Taco neice described as disgusting....Will never go back, well above average prices for well below average food.More

We had lunch here. It was beautifully presented and delicious. Lots of attentive staff, everything was very clean, plenty of available water to drink. An excellent menu

I don’t think I could eat here again. The food was cold 😕I ordered a soy chai latte but instead got a milky cold latte.. Maybe it wasn’t the best day to visit.

My wife and I visited for lunch, both had the same and both felt poorly afterwards. Staff were lovely, it was very busy and the coffee was good. Chicken burger was odd and like nothing I’ve eaten before. Never again
