Great ambience

A great gathering place with friends, for starters and cocktails. Gets very busy, but has a great vibe with delicious food. During a rush servers are not as attentive as one would like.

Was there with friends and family members and everyone loved the place. My wife's nephew visited when he was younger and wanted to take a memento from the server which she obtained in Europe and she declined to give it to him. All had a good laugh!!

Visited our daughter in Guelph last weekend and went to Atmosphere Cafe for dinner. Food was freshly made and delicious ... Certainly didn't rush us out so we could enjoy catching up.

The first time we visited this place was just after Xmas 2015, service was slow but food was tasty so we decided to try again. This time the service was much better and the food was still very good! We will go back again. I really like thin crusted pizza and the salads were tasty and a nice size as... More

Really good food, nice options of beers and great service. I had the ultimate burger, my family got the blue cheese and apple pizza and the lobster and tuna sandwich. All of those really good.

Call it a cafe, bistro or whatever, this place is essentially a bistro with pretty average cooking abilities for Guelph. Service is excellent, wines lists are poor with high prices, and ambiance is 'bistro nice'…. Decent and interesting names for washrooms, and generally well laid out. The food however is pretty average bistro/pub/bar fare. Lamb was tasty, soup not too... More

No reservations required for couples and ample seating for larger groups make this establishment a popular choice right across from Guelph City Hall. The menu has a great variety of dishes including pizzas, hot entrees and a list of starters. Service and the decor are casual and welcoming.

Have always found the food good and the service excellent, It's that consistency and reliability that brings me back and I have yet to be disappointed. They put together some very interesting salads and delicious sandwiches, It all tastes so very fresh, A pleasant experience - simple yet sophisticated.

Really enjoyed the food and the service. Really interesting variety on the menu and there pizza is different and delicious. Fresh toppings. Have a wide variety of interesting drinks at their mini bar and a great atmosphere for a great night out. The staff were incredibly friendly and we're very knowledgeable in regards to their products. My personal favourite dish... More
