The food is consistently fresh and lick your plate clean delicious. They offer the best gluten free pizzas in Guelph. Never disappointing and always a meal to look forward to. Staff is friendly, quick to serve and atmosphere is filled with great energy.

Our tour group ate here. We filled the entire cafe. The service was excellent as well as the food. Since we were on a tour, we had chosen what pizza we wanted. The decor fit the name of the cafe. It was a grateful place to eat.

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.
