When the going gets tough, the tough get some coffee in their system, and that’s what Union Espresso is here to help with. Located immediately street side in the centre city, the little coffee shop takes its mission to supply Hamilton locals with their daily caffeine hit seriously (not without a little chalkboard humour every day though).

Keeping things simple, the one-man show hands out Atomic coffee in all the usual forms, while a small selection of cookies keeps the hunger in check till lunch time. White tiling, modern black stools and a gleaming copper coffee machine, it’s easy to see how this has become a local favourite stop off.

Sharing a space with local camera store Snapshot, Union Espresso gets keen photographers wandering past as well as the extra bonus of snappy photographic prints on its walls. There’s room for a few small groups in the inside area, or sit out front and watch some of Hamilton’s colourful life pass on by.
