After a long morning disembarking from a cruise then catching the central coast train from Sydney to Newcastle needed to fill the hole quickly. The Rolador is immediately outside the Hamilton Station. We were very quickly given a table outside, menus provided and given time to digest the very interesting menu. From standard bekky fare to hmmm that sounds interesting!... More

I went with my two boys. We had Breakfast Burritos which were delicious. The staff are friendly. Sometimes it's difficult to find a table but it's worth the effort. It's a good menu at reasonable prices right next to Hamilton Train Station

Place has a funky, trendy, Melbourne-like vibe. Decor is cool, chai is tasty. Food prices are very reasonable for the area but my brekky burritos was nothing special. Literally just a rasher of bacon with some plain scrambled egg (no herbs or added spices) roled up in a warm wrap. The menu stated that it came with tomato relish, but... More

Coffee is always great here as they really know tyre stuff. Also had breakfast this morning and the eggs on sourdough were great along with the side of mushrooms. Other meals at the table also all looked nice and good comments by all. Definitely worth a try if you haven't been before.

I'm local to the area and I regularly go to this cafe. The food and drinks are delicious and I have never been disappointed. The coffee is consistently good. The decor is mix-match, industrial style. There are food items on the menu to please everyone and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. It can get quite busy so it's... More

Coming from further away I always call up and pre order my tea for when I collect- they never dissapoint. A great stop when in Hamilton or even waiting on a train- lovely staff, what a chic inner city cafe should be

Thought we had found a trendy place for breakfast. Three people behind the counter making takeaway coffee for walk by customers. One waitress that managed to bring menu and bottle of water. Then not seen again! Eight customers sitting at tables waiting for service. We left after 15 minutes of waiting. This is my first negative comment where I have... More
