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.

Lainee and Emilio Bonito Live at Mulberry


Lainee was born and raised in Toronto, ON, and at an early age looked forward to escaping the city for the fields, streams and woods to the North. Those treks to the country inspired her to pick up the guitar and start songwriting. Passionate about books and poetry, story-telling has always been front and centre for Lainee. Her musical style fuses pop with flashes of folk and gritty Americana.

Born and raised in Hamilton, Emilio Bonito crafts intricate instrumental songs that fuse acoustic fingerstyle guitar with avant-garde, indie folk and pop culture influences. Emilio’s music fuses his eclectic influences into an artful mix of new and old. CBC Radio described his debut single “Marth” as “a great example of contemporary fingerstyle guitar.” Subsequent releases have explored themes of rumination and self-reflection. Recorded by moon:and:6, the production salutes other fingerstyle greats such as Andy McKee and Canadians Don Ross and Antoine Dufour, while staying true to the Emilio’s hypnotic and undulating percussive style.

Laura Keating Live at Mulberry


The world around her is suddenly in closer view. She writes about the things she sees, the things she hears and the things she feels. It goes deep. Laura Keating is a Hamilton-born folk-rock singer-songwriter who engages audiences with her personal stories which are the framework of vibrant melodies. When Keating plugs in her acoustic guitar, away she goes, with vocals that deliver the gentleness and power needed to soothe the soul or wake up the mind. She's on a journey to the heart and soul of life and she invites you along for the ride! Her collection of songs is derived from a passionate heart and delivered with a compelling percussive style… sometimes mellow and reflective, sometimes raw and edgy but always emotional to the core. Keating thrives on telling a good story, so there's always a message in her songs. It can be the simple turn of a phrase, or a gaze at a rippling wave, that triggers a song into existence. Finding beauty in unexpected places entices her to write words which provoke thoughts about our own lives. Honesty is everything and Keating exposes this fragility on stage and in her debut album Let Me Tell You, being released November, 2017. Being the youngest sibling surrounded by musical brothers, music was always in front of her. From the early age of seven, Laura was toting around a guitar; then playing the piano to death in her teens; not surprisingly, writing her first songs at the tender age of fifteen. It was her passion then and is again, today. Music found Laura when she needed it most and her songs speak volumes. Her music is the sum of her parts and she wants to share it with you. Watch Laura Keating stir passion into performances at local live music venues, patios, fundraisers and house concerts. For your copy of her debut album Let Me Tell You, contact Laura on Facebook at LauraKeatingMusician or email laurakeating.music@gmail.com. Digital uploads and website coming soon.
