Hamilton CBD Bakeries

Before there were cafes the bakery ruled supreme. Hamilton Central is home to some long-standing favourite bakeries as well as some up and coming ones. We paid them all a visit to see what was on offer.

Lynda’s Lunchbar
6 Harwood Street
Visit at lunchtime to see how popular this tiny spot hidden in the back streets of Hamilton Central is.
Be tempted by the sweet treats, get your fill of their giant filled rolls, try a gourmet pie or select from the takeaway items of the deep-fried variety.

The Grumpy Baker

In three years the Grumpy Baker has won the hearts and tummies of many Hamiltonians with their freshly baked breads, rolls and pies, not to mention their doughnuts and cinnamon buns.
