We decided to eat at With the Grain at 12:30 on a Wednesday and we anticipated it would be busy. It was packed inside but we were able to find two tables out on the patio we could squeeze together (there were four of us). The staff were friendly with us and came to our table in a speedy fashion... More

Everything is so fresh and homemade, it makes you feel like a kid with their homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches a must. It small and quant the smells of the food cooking will make you want more. Good for tea, coffee and dessert or a light lunch. One word Yummmmy

Stopped by on our way to the Elora Gorge. We just grabbed some fresh baking from the little bakery shop. It was early on a Sunday morning so they did not have their full menu out, but we liked that! Everything was fresh and delicious, especially the coconut oatmeal cookies. We shared them with our friends on a picnic and... More

Went to this restaurant on recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. Cute little spot, with a take out options in the front, seating in the back and a bakery across the street. Server was friendly and polite and the food came fast. If you're not into local, farm fresh, whole grain type of food I probably wouldn't... More

For the regular and not so regular breakfast fare. Friendly staff, good coffee and food, great bread and their bakery is a treat.

The atmosphere was a cute little cottage with some outdoor seating. The atmosphere was a "seat yourself and hope to find a spot" type of setup. Luckily, a very nice couple gave up their 4-seat table for us and moved to a 2-seat one after they had already gotten food. Canada is so great! The breakfast was really good. I... More

Delicious food, and wonderful service. Great casual environment, bright, and cozy. Always busy and full of life, both from the customers and employees. Healthy food, making a difference.

If staying for brunch, choose from lunch or all day breakfast menu. If you are in for a coffee cup of chilli or well laid out plate of breakfast, a well prepared dish awaits. Good quality food. The best scrambled eggs yet.

Headed to WtG for a late Sunday lunch and left happy and satisfied. The restaurant is located in a room off the entrance and is seat yourself. Our server brought us menus after a little wait and everything on it sounded amazing. We settled on the breakfast plate and a sandwich with salad. Though the server was slow take our... More
