Award-winning Hamilton pizzeria adding second location downtown
Published July 7, 2022 at 11:36 am
A Hamilton pizza joint that has built a foodie following despite COVID-19 challenges is expanding to downtown Hamilton.
Co-owner Justin Tanada confirmed Cowabunga Pizza will be adding a location steps from James Street North, on Vine Street. Tanada said the new location “will feature more than just pizza.”
Since opening in October 2020 with a takeout-only location at 536 Upper Wellington St., Cowabunga has earned strong reviews for its pizza, snack and dip offerings. (The latter include the likes of jalapeno ranch and truffle parm.)
Steeltown Chowdown was the first to report the news of the expansion. It also notes that Cowabunga makes even the elemental cheese slice mouth-watering.
“Their cheese pizza is phenomenal,” the Chowdown account noted on Wednesday. “With just mozzarella, fior de latte and oregano, it really lets the quality of the sauce and especially the crust shine through.”
Presently, Cowabunga is open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. every day. Their hotline for orders (905-575-1717) is usually open around 11 a.m..
Last year, Tanada won an award at the Canadian Pizza Summit.
The new space will be a 30 Vine St., which was formerly occupied by Nique restaurant. IT closed its doors for good in mid-April.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
