This café’s story began with a stall selling freshly baked goodies at the local farmers market, and has grown into a well-known name and brand around Hamilton with three beautiful cafés across the city. Mavis started the stall almost a decade ago and has since gone on to establish a small empire of cafés in Hamilton East, Hamilton Airport and the Hamilton CBD. Well known for simple delicious food and creative aesthetic, it’s a great spot for breakfast, lunch or coffee and a nibble.

Serving Havana coffee, the CBD café is spacious, with a large white tree in the middle covered with fairy lights and a wall covered with big green ferns. Their waffles are ever popular, and they have a liquor licence for those wanting a glass of bubbly with their breakfast or a vino over lunch. Mavis even offers a special for the hungry students, a bacon and egg English muffin and a coffee for $10. A popular spot for evening functions - the café is regularly booked out for birthdays, weddings and corporate evenings. True to its humble beginnings, Mavis can also be found at the Hamilton Farmers Market on Sunday mornings, selling sweets and pastries.
