Excellent food and service. The food was so fresh. So appreciated the experience.
Clean, spacious spot with great lighting. Food was fresh and really delicious!! Service was friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Bread Bar on James St in Hamilton!! I will definitely return!
This was the best lunch we have had in so long! You get what you pay for, it’s phenomenal. Highly recommend the hummus app and jerk chicken pizza! Will be back.
Great experience. Got there after a tiring treetop trekking experience, service was on point, welcoming and amazing. Food was terrific and prices are reasonable. I would definitely come back if I am in the area. Unfortunately I am in Milton and don't go to Hamilton much but would recommend to anyone in the area to check them out, well worth it.
First time at Bread Bar and we were not disappointed. Our server was well informed, attentive and amazing. We tried a variety of items that our server recommended. Everything was so flavourful and unique. You can certainly tell this is a true farm to table establishment. We can’t wait to try their other location in Guelph.
Great place, great food, great service, great drinks. Highly recommend!
The food was amazing and the place was clean! Service was disappointing as the patio was not busy at all and it took over 30 minutes to just get our drinks.
TLDR, food amazing, drinks amazing, portions amazing, bathroom mirror amazing, our server Emily amazing! We'll be back!
Making a reservation for four was easier than expected - had to make it several days in advance, which is pretty decent for a place like bread bar. Lots of information was provided on COVID guidelines, how long our reservation would be for etc. They sent a reminder and calendar invitation, which was very nice!
When we got there, our server, Emily was very nice! Super knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. I was worried about a sauce being too spicy and she recommended I get it on the side (idk why I didnt think of that) but thank god she did because I would have probably had a very spicy meal!
The food: Amazing, really impressive portion sizes for the price, whenever I eat at bread bar I always leave with leftovers. My partner and I order a pitcher of sangria wherever we go and most of the time we get about 2 drinks each out of it, but at bread bar we were stumbling home! When you pay $39 for a pitcher of sangria, you get A LOT out of it (it was also delicious). The special pizza was amazing, their food never disappoints. Emily is a beer expert and made great conversation with my friends about their choices.
Experience: By the end of the night, we already had inside jokes with Emily, she was awesome, the food is awesome, the ambiance is awesome - even the bathrooms are awesome. (James location has the most amazing bathrooms with a selfie mirror to die for)/ You might go to bread bar just for the food but you'll leave with an experience!
We paid partially with a gift card and went out of our way to calculate our tip on the total, not the total after applying the gift card just to make sure that we wouldn't under-tip. Emily - from your recommendations to your conversation - you made our night! (ps thanks for letting us know you work weekends, we'll definitely be back soon!)
The apple bacon pizza is amazing. Great patio and amazing to see downtown Hamilton bumping on a Thursday night.
Always a good meal. Love their pizza.
I had been to another location a few years ago and went back for the Apple Bacon Pizza. Still amazing.
Great food, service etc.
This was our first time trying the James Street location. The food just wasn’t as good as what we are used to at the Locke Street location. Pizza dough wasn’t cooked all the way through. Forgot the honey on the Bee Sting pizza. Overall the food was just ok.
Favorite restaurant ever. It is quite loud, and I have a slight hearing impairment, so I find the noise level difficult for communication. Even so, the quality of the food, the service is truly exceptional. Portions are huge, so make sure you are hungry if you go!
Great, the whole family loved everything!
So many more items on the menu we cannot wait to try...
Really great for lunch and dinner. Portion sizes are quite large and food is very tasty.
This will certainly become a place I will bring my visitors to Hamilton. What an amazing experience. The food was simply divine, server was attentive (but not obnoxious), loved the simple but gorgeous decor. I would eat here every week if I could.
Everything was perfect. Food, service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend and go back. Food is seasonal so menu changes as do the seasons which is kind of nice.
Carrot ginger soup was incredible, and the service outstanding!
sever was very kind to my boyfriend and i and made our experience very memorable. food was great too
I had a wonderful night with my friends! Our server was amazing, the food never disappoints 😍 it was our first time inside and the indoor dining was beautiful, a great vibe!
Staff were excellent. Atmosphere was very bright and friendly. Service was fast and our server was very attentive to our needs. Food did not disappoint.
Bread bar has good food, nice interior with good service. I almost always wind up ordering pizza and never have room for the great desserts.
The food was hot, tasty and well displayed. The waitress was engaging and friendly. Great atmosphere!
Our server was amazing. My boyfriend and I are both in the service industry and everything from the food and service was 10/10. Thank you so much!
Came here for brunch on a Saturday morning and ordered the beef hash and bee sting pizza. The bee sting pizza is very unique and tasty. Would love to come back to try other pizza flavours.
Good quality and worth the price. Enjoyed the breakfast menu and of course their amazing pizzas. I love that the there is a patio but didn't enjoy the noise of busy James St., but that is to be expected of course!
Great experience! Lights dimmed just a little bit more would really improve the ambience.
A quick lunch. Food was ok. Nothing to crazy or stand out about the quality and food.
Was a slow start as it took a while for our server to get to us, but after that service was great. Our server was very sweet. We ordered the burrata (highly recommend), bee sting pizza and el Diablo pizza. We both loved the food. Was very yummy. Patio was nice, occasionally a little loud but nothing crazy. Will definitely go again :)
Quiet on the patio. Attentive service and excellent service. The bread board is a meal in itself. Watermelon and quinoa salads were both very tasty. Need to go back again to try dessert!
So good. Such good cocktails too
This was a recommendation from a fellow chef in Hamilton. The staff were wonderful to our 10-month-old. Three of us had pizzas and they were all really good. We loved the pizzas so much that my mother purchased a cookbook so we could try them at home. We also grabbed desserts to take home, which were also really good.
My father had the breakfast sandwich with fries. There was a very generous serving of fries, but he did comment that he would prefer home fries with a breakfast item.
Always a great time! Even with the limited menu it was such a pleasure - we ordered a large Cheese Louise with mushrooms added and it was so delicious!
The space and ambiance are among my favourite in the city.
Everything was great but we didn’t know we were going right in the middle of the menu change from lunch to dinner so had a very reduced menu. We were celebrating my mother’s birthday so we were disappointed. They should put that on their website. Everything was lovely though, as long as you only wanted a salad or pizza 😜
Fantastic service. Delicious food in much bigger than expected portions.
We have been meaning to try this location for awhile. We usually go to the one on Locke. This location is amazing. Beautiful, spacious and parking (paid) close by. Our server was amazing. We will definitely be back.
Reservation was easy through the OpenTable app and it was a weekday evening. Our hostess was very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. Food tasted fresh and delicious, we ordered the bread platter (they are called Bread Bar after all!) for a starter and then a pizza, the umami burger, Mac and cheese and a sumptuous salad for mains and the chocolate brownie dessert. Their selection of craft beers was also very enticing. portions are excellent, we have enough for another meal from the leftovers. Was a treat for our family of 4, 3 of who are vegetarian. We will go back to try their spiked milkshakes and espresso drinks. thank you.
