Nice rustic feel. Warm decor. A bit of a turn off when we found an oil slicked lady bug in our spinach salad we were sharing. Staff quickly replaced the salad and apologized but there was no financial compensation or a visit from the chef which was disappointing. The lemonade was very watery. We both had fish and chips. The fish was good. The fries were a little lumpy.

My partner and I like to go for the Venison burger, it's so juicy and satisfying. Miijidaa Cafe has quickly become our favourite restaurant in town; the food is delicious and the waitstaff is so welcoming, kind and fun. They also have my favourite patio in Guelph, tucked away from the street but still downtown. I highly recommend Miijidaa Cafe!

Ate dinner at Miijidaa during a weekend visit to Guelph with a handful of buddies. The space was beautiful, service friendly and the food delicious. There were some skeptics in the group at the beginning but by the end of dinner everyone had to admit Miijidaa exceeded our expectations. A must visit if you're in Guelph and looking for a memorable meal.

This was my second visit and my husbands first. We were disappointed in our meals..i had the salmon wild rice dish which was over cooked and salty....my husband had the Duck which was cold and undercooked. For the cost and the restaurant not being very busy...should have been better and given more attention to the preparation.

A great experience with wonderful service, food and value. Shared 3 lovely apps - Elk Egg and Deep fried pickles were faves, and all enjoyed our mains. The salmon was excellent and my son loved the beef cheeks.

- Amazing food
- Awesome server. I have dietary restrictions and she was very knowledgable and eager to help me find something I could have
- Great playlist they had on
- We went on Mother's Day and they gave all mother's a little herb plant to take home. So cute! :)

Thanks Miijidaa!!

We would have had a better meal if the table we were seated at would have been biggest. Our group of 4 was seated at a small table with barely enough elbow room. It made the experience unpleasant as it felt as if it was a juggling act with the plates and a really small table. Side note, the same size table was also used for groups of 2 but it was far too small for 4 adults. Furthermore, all of the 4 chairs were very wobbly and I think could honesty be broken by a large grown man.

We had a very nice birthday dinner for two couples to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The atmosphere was perfect. Food options were great. Wait staff took care of us and went the extra mile to bring out their Peanut Butter chocolate pie to celebrate and provide my wife a birthday card and gift card. Very nice touch. We will return!

We love the Bookshelf and the ambiance at Miijidaa. We have had meals there many times. This week when we visited with friends, and the time before as well, we found the food to be uninspired. The bouillabaisse was rather tasteless, the broth not very savoury, mussels didn’t seem fresh. The salmon portion was very small and the accompanying vegetables not very appetizing. Vegetarian options were few. We were disappointed.
