Hours: Monday-Friday 7AM - 7PM, Saturday-Sunday 10AM-6PM

What I tried:
Blueberry Tart and Chocolate Nut Cake
Decaf Latte (Illy Brand) and Regular Latte (Vintage Coffee Brand)
Location in the heart of downtown Hamilton and amazing position on James St.
A wonderful addition to the coffee scene in Hamilton
A variety of handmade chocolate goodies (truffles, cakes, bars, chocolate shoes).
Delicious cakes and pastries.
Currently their location is being dwarfed by construction next door and can be missed. This should not be a problem once construction ends.
Personally, the range of items offered at Heaven's Kitchen is overwhelming. It does not allow them to perfect and focus on a few good items but instead focus on quantity. As a result not every item displayed has the same quality.
The chocolate cake was to die for!
Extremely professional and friendly. It was their second day being open and they were very enthusiastic.
The coffee's and the desserts were great. Very moist and fresh. The owner makes all the desserts in house.
We were the only ones there around 4:00 PM.
Having visited many café's in Hamilton, the décor at Heaven's Kitchen is unique however it was dated in my opinion. It had a Victorian European feel to it no doubt but a little out of character for the Hamilton's coffee scene. On a personal note, it was not my taste. I showed my mother pictures of this café later in the day and she was in love and will definitely pay a visit.
Give Heaven's Kitchen a try as it may be a different experience for you vs for me.
I believe that in time, they will know who to appeal to and can focus on what desserts to take out and what to put out.
I would also suggest starting "High Tea" sessions here as the décor and ambiance calls for it and downtown Hamilton does not have a place to attend high teas.
