Saint James Eatery, the newest in a string of coffee shops opened along James Street, focuses on serving great coffee and food in a lively atmosphere. Stop in before work for a cup of coffee (or a crowd favorite, mint-chocolate tea), a quick snack during the mid-day slump, or on the weekend for brunch before shopping along James. Above all else, Saint James Eatery is guided by quality coffee, local and hand-sourced ingredients, and the family who serves it all.

Mulberry Street Coffeehouse is a Hamilton staple, serving high-quality coffee and delicious baked goods in a historic building. While Mulberry’s treats should not be missed, its ‘nourishment’ menu includes organic, locally sourced ingredients made into paninis, quiche, quinoa bowls, and more. If you’re visiting in the evening, Mulberry’s extensive beer, wine, and cocktail menu includes selections like ‘Sibling Rivalry Red’ and ‘Buenos Noches.’
Once again, not really on James Street North, but low prices and great food make up for the extra 30-second walk. August 8’s extensive Cantonese and Japanese fare, including teppanyaki grill, dim-sum, sushi, and sashimi, is served all-you-can-eat style for reasonable prices. Enjoy the high-tech experience while chowing down on California rolls and yam tempura (so good). All orders are made over iPads and served in minutes. Hint: August 8 also has locations at Oakville, Burlington, and Stoney Creek, and even Upper James for non-downtown Hamilton friends.

Much like a football team creating different plays, gather your team together and attack Saltlick Smokehouse’s menu with strategy. The framework: select three to five meats and two sides, such as macaroni and cheese and coleslaw, for the table. There’s no need to worry about skimpy portion sizes here — servings are adjusted by the kitchen according to how many are at the table.
