About Earth to Table Bread Bar:

A restaurant with a motto like “good ingredients matter” the Earth to Table Bread Bar is a place where people can enjoy a good, healthy meal prepared according to traditional American and Canadian cuisines, as well as a variety of pizzas made per Italian recipes. One of its three locations is on 258 Locke Street South, in Hamilton, Ontario.

There is street side parking for cars and bikes, but not much, so come prepared. It takes reservations, and you can have a family meal here, as it is welcoming to children, and accepting of larger groups. There is a TV, but no Wi-Fi and no outside seating area. The inside is casual, with a relaxed atmosphere and a full bar.

The Earth to Table Bread Bar serves lunch and dinner from their exciting menu and earth to table ingredients. Their business hours are 8 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week.
