Hi All!

Today I wanted to do something different and show you a little hometown hidden gem- and no- Hamilton, Ontario is not actually my hometown, but it is the town that I call home now! And I’ve definitely found a gem! – my new favourite little cafe called ‘the cannon’

You know one of those restaurants that whenever you have friends in town you want to bring them? Well this is that restaurant for me 🙂 – ‘the cannon’

179 Ottawa st. north, Hamilton Ontario   //   289-700-0088   //

the cannon is a little cafe-style restaurant, where they have all the fancy coffees, teas and lattes- but they also have the most amazing waffles!

 (beautiful latte art for me)
(Making our Chemex – a fancy slow-filter coffee)
 Iced for Cael
Hot for Kristie
But now for my favourite part- the waffles. And these aren’t just regular waffles (although you can get regular waffles) -these are fancy dinner waffles! 

This is one of their ‘Brunch Plates’- my favourite the ‘Merican Brunch plate, which is a pesto waffle, topped with grilled veggies, goat cheese, avocado, two poached eggs and balsamic reduction (and of course I added a side of bacon).

I think I could live off this, definitely on my top 10 list of favourite meals of all time. 
Other than the amazing food, it’s just a really relaxed atmosphere, very quaint and friendly!
Perfect for some sisters coffee time, or even just hanging out with your laptop for a bit- I feel like I could just spend hours relaxing here 🙂

Love love love this place! So much that I thought I should share it with you all. So if you are ever coming to Hamilton- you know my recommendation.

I have definitely given myself a serious waffle craving right now…

What are your favourite hometown (or current town you call home) places to go?

    I came across your blog via a post from "calm under tension" ( I've been trawling the internet for bra-making posts, its a new thing to me) and my heart totally skipped a beat when I saw the first post I saw is about the Cannon! Its definitely my favourite hometown cafe too, nothing beats waffles and ottawa st fabric shopping 🙂
