Service was a bit dicey here when we came for lunch. It would make sense on a busy day but there was one other table at the time. When we ate though the food was very good and the baked goods were superb. Took some home with us and chowed down, still good on day two.

I don't industry the place reasonably priced or relaxing. A 4oz cup American for over $5, and then they want a tip for slow service ND a noisy atmosphere. Why do people support such business practices?

On our way to an 80th birthday celebration, we stopped here to get scones. There is a bakery but also a wonderfully rustic restaurant. I had a cold coffee, bottled from a local producer. The sandwich was no ordinary cheese sandwich. With aged cheddar and a mango chutney my taste buds rejoiced.

Like the coffee. Baked goods are very good. I usually get mine to go so I can go walk in the park. A relaxing start to my Saturday mornings

The cafe has nice meals with fresh ingredients in a lovely atmosphere, but the attached bakery is the best one in town. I can't do without their oatmeal bread and whole grain English muffins. The sweet treats are an excellent bonus.

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
