GGs is a haven of good vibes serving coffee and breakfast from the sixth ‘shed’ of Lovegrove Lane, a block of owner operator businesses off Grey Street in East Hamilton. This coffee oasis is light and sunny, decorated with 70s nick nacks that will leave you reminiscing over your family bach.

Well known for their chocolate lamingtons and delicious savoury scones (think beetroot, fennel and feta or rosemary and feta), GGs have also begun a toastie menu, serving up a variety of tasty combos like spicy bacon, kimchi, or Boston bean and cheese. House made soups are also a big seller from the little café, with hungry customers lining up for the French onion, broad bean and pea, or honey roasted parsnip versions. Well on their way to becoming a breakfast retreat for the hungry Hamiltonian, GG’s is big on having vegan options for the everyday diner too, and can make most of their meals to suit. Pyrony Pies and their very own vegan ginger loaf two things the cruelty-free eaters sure to enjoy.

What began as donuts and coffee has quickly developed into a full, thriving cafe that feels like a beach holiday. GGs serves Rocket coffee, Forage & Bloom tea, and Hakanoa Ginger. Karma Cola, Almightly juice, and Höpt soda are also well stocked in the fridge, or give the ‘Hot Malt and Maple’ a try to warm up a winter day. They do pour overs and chemex for the coffee connoisseur, and are also one of the very few establishments in Hamilton that offer free, functional wifi. There are a number of cosy tables inside as well as a sunny outdoor area at the front where large groups often congregate over Vitamin C and coffee. So grab the bros and come down to GGs.
