One of Hamilton’s most beloved roasters has announced that they’ll be opening a new location along downtown’s “restaurant row” on King William Street.
Currently, the roaster’s primary shop is located up the Mountain on Concession Street with stands at the Hamilton Farmers’ Market and Mohawk College.
The announcement of this new location came over social media yesterday, to many cheers.

We are beyond excited to announce that RELAY Coffee will be opening a café location downtown at 27 King William St. ☕☕☕ This is a big step for us and we are able to do it because of the support and encouragement you, our dear guests, give to us on a regular basis. ☕☕☕ We LOVE roasting and brewing coffee for you and are delighted to have another place to meet you and to create a place where you can breathe deep and settle in. ☕☕☕ There is lots to do as we move forward but we do so in anticipation of a Spring opening sometime in May. Thank you for sharing in this with us. It makes all the difference. ☕☕☕ #HamOnt #news #cafe #CoffeeRoaster #locallyroasted #coffee #CoffeeShop #barista
The announcement mentions that the address is 27 King William Street, which is the former home of Rust City Brewery. The space will be significantly larger than Relay’s current mountain location. No official word if the Concession Street location will close and be consolidated into this new spot.
Given that the King William space was formerly serving coffee, the new location won’t need to undergo heavy renovation and as a result, we can expect a spring opening “sometime in May”.
Relay Coffee has been a staple in Hamilton, having recently celebrated their 10th anniversary.
