After trying various other restaurants in Guelph who either couldn't or wouldn't cater for coeliac (even though they advertised gluten free!) we ended up in this wonderful restaurant 😀. It was a group of six eating at lunchtime and only 1 was coeliac. The staff were very helpful and answered all questions, the lovely waitress double checked everything with the... More

I live overseas but Guelph is home. When I come back I always go to Atmosphere which offers a trendy and comfortable experience in downtown Guelph. The management and staff are great and the food and drinks terrific. Had a couple of visits and enjoyed each one. Good and relaxing location - eat indoors or cafe style on Cardon Street.

Right across from City Hall. A small obscure looking facade ... odd little place. WOW were we surprised... Food - Service - Price - Out of this world... Friendly, fast, ... really nice.... No question about a return visit.

My wife and I stopped by for a weekday lunch recently and could not have been happier with both the food and the service. We ordered and split a club sandwich (awesome bread!), the pizza special (sausage, red peppers and feta cheeses on a wonderful thin crust) and a blueberry spinach salad with blue cheese that was fresh and refreshing....

A nice little restaurant. Good service. Sidewalk patio. A bit pricey but not overly. Washrooms are clean and cute, each of the 5 has it's own little room. There is street parking with a splash pad across from it. The area has a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance. It is handicapped accessible. We had the homemade... More

Small yet quaint! No deep fried food here, only fresh good food! Love the bar and the bartender...she knows what she is doing with her bottles and glasses! The espresso machine is a dream! Will be back for dinner in the near future.

What a wonderful dinner my wife and I had. Sat outside with small gathering on their sidewalk tables. Pizza, salad & burritos. And good bottle of Riesling.

I have the great fortune of regularly visiting Atmosphere Cafe on my Taste deTours, To The Core Food Tour and these people are consistently generous, warm and friendly. Their food and specialty beverages are to die for, as is their decor. There's a reason these guys have been around downtown Guelph for more than 12 years.

Went here on a weekday evening with my friend for dinner. We didn't expect much when we decided to go, but every time I walk past Atmosphere I can smell the food from the street so I was intrigued. Despite my initial thoughts, Atmosphere cafe changed my opinion! I really enjoyed it. When we entered in there was plenty of... More
