About Us

Mulberry Street Coffeehouse opened its doors on August 9th 2010. Since then we have been serving our Hamilton community as high quality coffee slingers,  a unique event space, and purveyors of addictive delicious baked goods.


The History of Our Building


Our Building was built in 1887 by its original owner, Thomas Allen, a builder by profession.

In 1906 the building was expanded. the commercial space fronting James St. North was converted into a hotel lobby and drinking establishment, and the building commenced its existence as ‘Armory Hotel’. Its main clients of the day were the armed forces officers and their families from the Armory facilities directly across James St. North.

Original plaster ceiling medallions have been maintained and enhanced in the former hotel lobby i.e where you get your coffee. Check out our original inlaid tile work in the floor of the cafe.

Claire Coupland Live at Mulberry


BIO:

With powerhouse vocals comparable to Susan Tedeschi and Brandi Carlile paired with the velvety softness of Joni Mitchell and Laura Marling, Claire has the ability to silence a room with her voice alone. A musician sensitive to dynamics and a performer committed to delivering the raw emotion of a song, she "sings like a broken sparrow" (Vance Gilbert). Claire tells stories of life's ups and downs in emotion packed, song driven arrangements, smooth fingerpicking and lush open tunings. Brimming with soulful vocals, and addictive melodies, her songs build and breathe and are written without losing the emotional platform great songs come from. She brings a fresh, graceful feel to contemporary folk, and is sure to move audiences with skillfully crafted songs but also charm them with her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph).

Gillian Nicola Live at Mulberry


The first thing that strikes listeners about Hamilton’s Gillian Nicola is the strength of her vocals. This rising singer/songwriter ranges from acoustic folk singer-songwriter to textured and electric Americana, and reflects a layering of influences and sounds. Her songwriting captures both autobiographical and outwardly inspired stories surrounded by a rich, folk-Americana musical landscape that is anchored on authenticity and honesty. After multiple tours supporting her 2016 EP, “No Place to Call,” Nicola spent early 2018 at the Alberta’s Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity composing her full-length debut, set for release later this year.
