Retro cafe by day, sleek cocktail bar by night, Hamilton's newest CaféBar has it all. This simply adorable spot is perfect for everything from Sunday brunch with the bestie to first-date drinks. A true foodie paradise, 1101 CaféBar officially opened its doors at the end of 2019 and if you haven’t been there yet, it’s totally worth checking out.
Once inside, you’ll feel like you’ve been blasted back to the ‘70s with the orange retro chairs and an impressive record collection that decorates the space.
By day, this charming spot operates as a cafe, serving delicious lattes and tasty lunch items from 11 a.m. on weekdays.
On weekends and holiday Mondays, you can enjoy a special brunch menu with $5 mimosas, Caesars, or kir royales to wash it all down.
But a whole new level of fun starts when the sun goes down.
At night, the cafe transitions into a fully-licenced cocktail bar complete with dim lighting and Instagram-worthy drinks.
The CaféBar is attached to the equally adorable Osten Beer Hall, which is worth checking out as well.
So, whether you’re after mochas or mimosas, this Hamilton spot is the place for all of it.
Brb, we’re driving there real quick.
With lunch items like roasted cauliflower flatbread, wild sockeye gravlax sandwiches, royale burgers with cheese, and more, you’re sure to find something that tickles your tastebuds here.
What’s better is that every menu item is under $13, so you can dine out on a budget.
You can even get beautiful latte-style art in your hot chocolate.
On weekends and holiday Mondays, there are two brunch options to choose from, a meat-based meal for $12.75 or a veggie option for $10.75.
The meat option includes two eggs, house-made pork sausage, double-smoked bacon, sauerkraut, and rye bread.
The veg option comes with two eggs, cauliflower hash, onion house pickles, aioli, and rye bread.
This place's chic modern decor, great food and cocktails, and affordable prices make it a must-try for anyone in the Hamilton area.
