A Downtown Guelph Gem!

This great little eatery across from City Hall has been around for years with good reason. My husband loves their garlic romaine salad (just the right garlic kick) and I love just about anything on the menu. They do up a mean thin crust pizza - my favourite would be the spinach goat cheese. The... read more

We stopped in for lunch and had a tough time choosing from the menu because there were so many tempting directions to take...in the end among us we enjoyed crepes, feature pizza and an "ultimate" burger. All the choices were delicious and the "atmosphere" fantastic.

I've been dining at the Atmosphere for years now, and they just keep getting better. Their drink menu is fresh and exciting, their food is very tasty, and always fresh. The service is wonderful, never in your face.

On a weekend visit to Guelph, we discovered this great place across from city hall. Great pizza (thin crust) & salads. The waitress was attentive & friendly & laughed at our jokes!! We will return on our next trip to town.

Atmosphere never disappoints! This time we were just there for tea and dessert. Amazing selection of desserts that could accommodate various dietary restrictions. Our server, Curtis, was attentive and friendly. A real pleasure!

Enjoyed a delicious dessert at the lovely Atmosphere Cafe. Their dessert menu featured a large number of naturally gluten-free items; including three different cheesecake options, an apple creme brûlée and a chocolate pate. The chocolate walnut caramel cheesecake was astounding! The ambiance at Atmosphere offers a an intimate setting for a meal - beautiful stonework throughout, charming decor and unique... More

Can get tight but it is comfortable and the food choices are interesting. Somehow two of our eight meals were forgotten so they had to wait almost half an hour. They got free food in return so I guess they made it right.

Dined at Atmosphere with good friends last night and all of us were very impressed by the whole experience. Welcoming contemporary decor, succinct and original menu, fresh ingredients, brilliant execution. Portioning was appropriate and all dishes were presented thoughtfully and artistically. The Bailey's crème brûlée with salted caramel lattice on the side was a surprise desert option and very tasty;... More

We decided to try put this place while we were in Guelph. I checked on Trip Advisor for an area with a few choices. We ended up here cause of the cute little patio and beautiful weather. There were 3 of us and we decided to split a salad and pizza. The spinach salad with avacado and house made dressing... More
