This is a tiny little cafe and popular, so parking can be a challenge but worth it once you get inside. in the summer you can eat on the patio. The bread is amazing and you can buy some to take home and the lunches tasty and fresh. Good price too.

Thanks for your review Anne! If you like sourdough bread we'll be making a new whole wheat sourdough starting the Wednesday after Easter, if you give it a try let us know what you think. Cheers! More

I have been a frequent customer at With the Grain for the past few years and I am never disappointed. The food is excellent, the staff are amazing and the environment is wonderful. This café is highly recommended and I look forward to continue experiencing their excellent service and food. These types of establishments are a rarity.

This place is great. They are a restaurant and a bakery. Their treats are absolutely to die for. I haven't tried their breakfast yet as I am in love with the WTG salad and BATH sandwich. The bread is sooo fresh and fluffy and delicious. They also usually have dessert samples which are normally big enough to serve as a... More

I'm not much into baked goods and probably wouldn't spend the $$ for bread and sugar that they charge, but this is a great place to go for a light hearty lunch. Their soup and sandwiches are amazing. Good organic coffee and their service is great too. Seating is really limited, so be prepared to wait unless you're coming at... More

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

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
