Hamers Coffee

Hamers Coffee serves a curated selection of coffees and teas in an intentionally designed space.

They also serve artisanal breakfast sandwiches made in house, the idea being to modernize and elevate cafe staples.

Everything is set up for efficiency in the colourful space designed with help from Company Company and Jaime McQuaig of GUNNAR. Jutting placement of the angular bar is intended to create an opportunity for conversation.

Handbrew ($4.75) is code for pour over, a minutes-long process wherein coffee is weighed, brewed and meticulously swirled as it slowly filters into a waiting vessel, bringing out the subtleties of the specific beans.

Give this nutritious tea a try for the first time in the cafe ($4.75), or take home a whole cake that will last an incredibly long while.

Kuura also makes one-serving cakes ($3.50) that are suitable for shoving into a pocket and enjoying throughout the rest of the day, as each cake can be used to brew a cup of tea six or seven times over. You can also just have it brewed for you to enjoy in the cafe.

Puer teas are prepared using a tea board and a process of rinsing and steeping repeatedly.

With a dark brown hue strikingly similar to coffee, an initial steep is quite heady and intense, the flavours mellowing out with each successive steep.

A Best Western breakfast sandwich ($9) has the toppings of both a Classic Western and Veg Western sandwich: prosciutto, manchego, romesco, aioli, caramelized onions and grassy roasted shishitos, all surrounding a fluffy centre of soft scrambled egg.

A Patty Melt ($8) brings together an all-beef patty, American cheddar, caramelized onions, horseradish beet relish and Russian dressing, faithfully reinterpreting a hearty diner classic.

Slices of spongy white Pullman loaf from Blackbird are griddled for all sandwiches.

A spicy, smoky, vinegar-forward house tomato ketchup is available for dipping.
