It is tough to leave With the Grain without buying deserts or bread and pastries from the associated store opposite. The bread and all the food is always great. It caters really well for vegetarians. Is modestly priced and consequently is usually busy.

Creative menu options featuring their marquée breads. Dietary requests are accomodated. Great coffee and latte. The apple-cherry pie is full of fruit (not syrup). It's a busy spot but worth the wait.

A small but charming little bakery! I have probably tried everything including scones, breads, sugar cookies and my favourite DREAM bars. They also offer coffee and special orders. Great place to try if you are in the area.

Tasty food and good sized portions are offered at With the Grain. I have tried several of the breakfast and lunch offerings and never been disappointed. When visiting Guelph, it's a family treat to go for a meal here. The relaxed atmosphere is appreciated and although the restaurant can be very busy (ie popular) the staff never seem anything less...

Sometimes when you drive though a town and need stop for a bite you come across a real gem, With the Grain is charming and special and you wish there was one in every corner- they have a bakery on one side of the street and a resturant on the other side with home made soups, sandwiches and desserts- with...

This is a very quaint, basic restaurant with a good menu. I like dining when they put a bottle of water on the table without being asked!! No air conditioning but the day we were there, had windows open and a nice breeze. All 6 of us were satisfied with our meals. Pricing was good for quality and portion size... More

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?

We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience, Patrick C. Our coffee and expresso drinks are made from fairly traded, organically grown and locally roasted beans, which is why our coffee and espresso drinks are priced the way that they are - that's what it costs to provide environmentally and ethically sourced products to our guests.
