Earth to Table: Bread Bar is a living extension of the food philosophy that began when we were writing the Earth to Table cookbook. Earth to Table celebrates what is best about food and is trying to shorten the gap between producers and consumer.

Please note we only reserve part of the restaurant and save space for walk ins. The Patio is sat on a first come basis, we do not take reservations on the patio.

Bread Bar celebrates and cooks with the seasons. We offer handcrafted food, made with the finest ingredients for people who want a better quality meal. Good Ingredients Matter.

I come to the bread bar ALOT as it's my favourite spot in Guelph to eat. BUT I will say the last five times I have been to have dinner/lunch I have popped into to use the washroom, they were filthy, toilet paper and used paper towels all over the floor, the bin overflowing with paper towel , no toilet paper on the holder. I love the food, I love the servers, I love the ambiance but just thinking for all of this the bathrooms should not be in this disarray. I can understand if it was once that I saw them that way but it seems every time. It's not just the women's either as my husband went in and the men's were the same. Just so you know.

Everything great except the noise level. Very difficult to carry on a conversation with anyone at your table except the person sitting beside you.

I took a friend for lunch--she really enjoyed it. She is a "salad person", so the soup and salad lunch was perfect. We were able to enjoy a very relaxed time. I had asked for a seat by the window--we were accommodated! Thanks for a nice time!

We had the bread plate, delish as a shared appetizer. The mussels, minus the bacon (i don't eat meat) were outstanding. The pizza was flavourful, but a bit soggy in the middle. We did not stay for dessert this time, the bread plate is filling. The service was great and we had no major complaints.

They put a chair on the end of a four person table for a five person reservation.

Service was too slow. Too long between drinks and dinner and dessert.

We love the BB! The Guelph location is amazing. Our server was wonderful and super friendly. One of the few places that you are almost guaranteed a top notch experience every time. My sister came from Toronto with her girls just for a birthday lunch at the BB Guelph. Thank you again

Based in the size of the stands for the pizza, your tables are too small.

Met a friend on the patio for dinner and we both had pizza which was very good. I have only been to Earth to Table:Bread Bar a few times but enjoyed every visit! Have already recommended to others.

I booked a table a week in advance but was not given a very good table and had to wait in spite of being on time. Book far in advance and ask for window seating or the patio. The food, as always, was very good. We had an excellent braised tomato/cheese app, yummy mushroomy saucy burger and two good pizzas-one meat and another a veggie combo. The veggie one could have used more spicing. We added chili oil. The waiter was pleasant and efficient but seemed to be pushing us to leave towards the end of our meal. We decided it was an end of shift but that is still not a reason to get us to wrap it up. Also, I like to be told what is not on the menu before I start deciding what to eat. We chose two things that were not available, so we were disappointed twice. I like this restaurant's food but they need to upgrade their service. Have more fun. Everyone on the floor looked stressed.

Great food! Server could have been more knowledgeable on food items and also found that she “cut us off” from ordering hot food items after a few rounds. She stopped coming around to our table to clean dishes and to let us order again. We eventually just got the bill because she seemed annoyed with us. For a $35 brunch per person (not cheap) that is all you can eat, I expect to eat all I can eat...
