About Hayes Common

We are a neighbourhood eatery offering creative robust food, craft beer, carefully selected wine and great coffee.
It’s a place to start your day with a leisurely breakfast and coffee by Atomic Coffee Roasters; enjoy lunch overlooking the river; drop into for a bite and a beer in the afternoon; or linger for the evening over dinner with friends.... we are your home away from home!
We love good honest flavours and seasonal food - our menu is updated with the seasons making use of our kitchen garden to supplement where possible and we use local suppliers where we can. All of our meats and eggs are free-range to ensure the best quality and flavour.

Service exceptional. Party of three food great for two. On the other hand my burger was dry and the side plate of chips was overdone and salty. Last time I was there everything was great. I had raved about your burger to friends, but was letdown this time. Last burger had a beetroot relish, this one had a slice of beetroot. The difference is obvious. Will we come back again.? Yes, but will be trying something else.

Always welcoming . Efficient and friendly staff who go the extra distance. Good food and drink. I am not happy filling in those star things. Surely I can do a review without that? I have no idea what I’m comparing it with. The best cafe in the world? Hamilton, Auckland, Hamilton East? What? It doesn’t make sense to me, but I do enjoy coming to your cafe

A great location with a fantastic vibe. The staff were so friendly and helpful, equally matched by the scrumptious food. Thankyou for a lovely experience.

We had the best Wade Group Christmas party yet, Shona and the team were so hospitable and made the lead up and evening so enjoyable. The food was outstanding, especially the Christmas Ham as was the lovely selection of wines. Thank you so much for also allowing our very own in house band “Wade Groups Got Talent” to play.

Great meal, usual friendly informal ambience, good service. Only reason it's not 5 stars is that we didn't get one meal we ordered (lamb); it was replaced by a delicious beef dish, so not the end of the world. But just took the edge off a little ....

Great selection of wonderful food, excellent location. Very friendly Staff and service, just would’ve been nice to have been approached a bit more regarding drink fill ups and desert but it was extremely busy today. We will definitely return. Thanks
