Coffee and books....two of my favourite things. I had a peppermint latte....I wish I could remember the exact name of it, it was divine! It was their seasonal offering.

I had soup for lunch twice in a row - really good. There is a book store and craft store in the same location - very nicely done.

We were in Port Hardy to go to a concert with some friends, and we bought our tickets at Cafe Guido. We ended up spending four hours at this great place that turned out to be a combination cafe/bookstore/gallery. Great sandwiches, good strong coffee, books and art - and the company of good friends - what's not to love? Put... More

FAST internet! Friendly staff. A locals meeting spot for coffee, baked goods or a light meal. Cute gift shop downstairs.

Just expecting the standard coffee shop clone we were pleasantly charmed by the Guido's menu including soups and sandwiches as well as a nice open cafe setting that links into book and craft stores. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Well located in the central... More

the cappucino I had there was aweful, but then this is port hardy and the choice is very very limited. My wife had the soup which was very garlicky but tasty. I heard others say they enjoyed their coffee so I guess they were not italian coffee snobs like me. The shop is nice as it connected to the book... More

Very pleasant cafe, friendly staff serving good range of food and drinks. It has the added attraction of local art and a nice book section. Used by the locals so it has a buzzy atmosphere, nice place to sit and people watch.
