Wholesome, hearty foods, well-prepared, with friendly knowledgeable staff...what's not to like about this charming casual restaurant near Guelph's city centre? And, after your meal, cross the street and pick up some terrific baked goods at their bakery. The 4-grain whole bread is the best I've tasted, and the fruit/nut bread is packed with good stuff. Worth putting on your Guelph... More

If you're looking for good food and a cute atmosphere you've found the right place! I've visited many times and among my favourites are the WtG breakfast and the BATH sandwich. I love that most of the ingredients are fresh - even the ketchup is homemade! I would definitely recommend for all looking for a delicious breakfast/brunch and baked goods.

Not sure what is going on with this restaurant. We have gone there for years for breakfast but in the past couple of months both the service and the food (mainly the food) has really gone down hill. We love the atmosphere so we kept going but this past week we ordered the classic breakfast with poached egg and a... More

Fabulous dark roast coffee (Planet Bean roast) Ive had all hot the breakfast options. Theyre all good. Try the house made sausage patties in the WTG Bacon n Egg Brekkie. Most amazing sausage ever! Toast is made from fresh baked bread....my wife loves the parfaits and muffins

Thanks so much for the review! I will make sure to pass on your comments to the staff. Is it the Grainer Gold dark roast that you enjoy? That is my favourite for the first coffee of the day. :) More

I ordered the traditional breakfast spread and everything just needed a bit more zip, seasoning or flavor. The baked goods and coffee are delicious but my toast with butter needed help. I expected more, but at least the ingredients were good and the vibe is fantastic.

Almost embarassed to say I visit WtG at least once a week for with lunch, breakfast or a mid day snack. The BATH sandwich is my go to- best sandwich in Guelph. Lemon bars are heaven. Service is always friendly, even if at times a little slow (always worth the wait). Prices have gone up recently, getting a little too... More

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and the kind words about us. We have had to raise our prices recently due to some higher food costs, as well as after the increase in minimum wage we felt it was important to increase wages in a fair way for everyone. We hope however that our food will... More

this place is great for lunch, fresh bread, or a treat. I love the BATH sandwich. I have used With The Grain for catering as well, and everything is fresh and staff are great to work with. It's also worth it to go across the street to the bakery to grab something to take home.

Everything here is just amazing. From the fresh baked bread to the sweet treats (Lemon Tarts!) to the gorgeous little cafe. Not to mention the Coffee which is delish. Can be a bit busy on weekends but it's very understandable. Make sure to check out their seasonal treats (Ginger Bread cookies etc.).

This is a local favourite! Food is always fresh and made to order. I highly recommend the BATH sandwich (Bacon, Avocado, Tomato, Havarti). One thing to be prepared for is the service. Guelph is known for it's "hippy" population and With the Grain is essentially their headquarters. Expect slow service, sometimes painfully so, especially off peak hours. But the wait... More
