Miijidaa Cafe + Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Appealing options on the menu (enough to make me want to return!) Very tasty food. Stephanie was very pleasant and had a bright smile. Highly recommend it!
Good food, good service and wonderful all round dining experience.
The food was good. A nice meal before a movie upstairs. Tables a little too close for me. I don't need to hear others conversations. Loved the decor. Service was good.
The service was excellent as was the food. I would highly recommended this restaurant.
Excellent food quality. Healthy options and good selections for a casual night out or lunch.
Loved the service, specially Helena who treated us like good friends and a great host. Super recommendable !
This was our first visit to Miijida. This is a cosy restaurant in downtown Guelph. The service was good and they had some unique menu items. The Beef Cheeks were very tender and tasty. The goat cheese dip was a hit. First time I had tried Elk Scotch Egg...I liked it. They had smoked Ceasars on special and they were great. All in all...a good experience.
Would have loved to see more Vegan options i.e. twists on the menu rather than putting cheese in for protein. A Vegan pizza would be great. It doesn't have to have faux cheese, just other roasted ingredients and spices. That said, I plan to visit again and would enjoy the same meal repeatedly. The ragout was amazing!
We recently experienced eating at Miijidaa Cafe and we had a lovely server, and fabulous meal. Their daily specials are great value and all the food is fresh and filling. I would highly recommend a night out at Miijidaa.
We experienced the best service ever! Very happy with our experience, would go back if I lived closer to Guelph.
This place offers delightful amazing items. Unique items you will not find at a typical restaurant. Burnt onion stock, 3 sister ragout, brussels sprouts pizza, elk... gravalax... so much flavour!
As always the service was excellent, with only a minor hiccup from the kitchen (under cooked carrots). Wine and beer selections are all great, and the food in general is always excellent.
Awesome food, great ambiance. The highlight for my 4y.o. was that they had metal straws (not plastic) - it was a big hit :)
Excellent food and well presented. Restaurant on the noisy side. The waiter seemed to be in a hurry. Overall, a great place for a delicious meal.
Great food, really nice and engaging server. Much cheaper than I expected considering the quality and sustainability of the restaurant. Would definitely go again sometime soon, especially for lunch.
Just had lunch here. Excellent! Everything was great from the service, to the food to the restaurant ambience. Love they display the work of local artists. Love they have lots of veggie options. Everything is fresh, in house made and tasty! Great vibe. Just a fun place with a great patio outback.
Been several times - consistently excellent food, service and ambience.
My husband and I have made Miijidaas our go to local restaurant. The service is always excellent, Staff recognize us and welcome us back. All staff are educated and 100 percent knowledgeable on all items on their menu( how it's made, etc.) We have never been disappointed with our meals. Miijidaas buy local when they can and support our Community in many ways-- an important fact for us.
We highly recommend Miijidaas for any occasion-- or just a night out
Our go to place for birthdays and for just because. The menu is varied, with something for everyone, the Scotch Egg app is to die for but it isn't the only one. The Piri Piri cauliflower is so tastey. The wait for apps was a little longer than normal, but were comped which was nice. Our server was attentive but no over baring. Our party of five had the grilled salmon, chicken, the vension burger, braised beef cheeks and the tortiere all hit the spot.
Enjoyed a very good meal with very friendly service. The food is very tasty and local ingredients are used as much as possible. Would definitely recommend.
My husband and I had a great meal. We had the elk scotch egg and fried smoked pickles to start. The elk scotch egg was ridiculously good. My husband had the duck and I had the Canadian pizza. Both were excellent. We had ice cream (made in-house) for dessert. Our server was great. Very attentive and accommodating. They were great about accommodating my husband's dairy intolerance and were mindful about what he could and couldn't eat on the menu. Also, with a rooftop garden and and in-house smoker how could you go wrong?! I love the care and attention that is made to the values of the restaurant and to the food. We had a lovely evening and would happily return again!
Fantastic restaurant with amazing local organic food. The staff are also kind and very helpful
Friendly service, great blend of fabulous food and wonderful relaxing ambience.
just a great overall experience - so nice to sit outside too
Food was very good. Service was fine, but very slow. Not sure why...it wasn't really crowed. Our waiter was nice. Just everything slow. Nice to be out with girls...my husband would have walked out after waiting an hour for food to arrive.
We had several wait staff care for our needs. Our main server was Helena. She was beyond amazing. She provided us with the perfect balance of attentiveness and space for us to be. As a same sex couple celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, we so appreciated being acknowledged (this has not always been our experience in other places). We have been to your restaurant on numerous occasions and have always felt welcome. Hence our decision to share our special day in your venue.
Helena is a keeper. She was also very complimentary of restaurant's leadership and the sense of team she experiences with the other servers. It was evident that she enjoys her job and she said so.
We will see you again for sure.
Great restaurant, ambiance, food, service etc.!
I took a good friend of mine to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately there were a group of people on the table next to us that were very rowdy and so we could not have a good conversation as could barely hear each other. Nevertheless we enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent!
Will definitely be returning.
I have eaten at Miijidaa 3 times and have loved everything about it. I want to adopt all three of the servers we had. Menu is very interesting and we all had something we enjoyed. Miididaa will be my first choice restaurant from now on.
The "dreaded" in-laws were in town and we opted to try them out at Miijidaa. We weren't sure how they would like the eclectic menu, but the decor was a hit right from the get-go, and once the mains had been served the rating just skyrocketed.
My future wife and I have eaten at the majority of the restaurants associated with Miijidaa, and we find Miijidaa to be the right combination of interesting flavours, and down to earth presentations. Nothing too fancy for an everyday meal, but always worth returning to.
Also, the best pizza game in the DT Guelph area. Of non-take out places. We've still not tried all the local pizzerias ... yet.
This is a favourite spot for us for celebrating special events. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, service is friendly and efficient, and the food is wonderful. The fact that the food is creative and unique but they also accommodate food sensitivities is a bonus. We've only ever had good experiences there.
Our waiter was fabulous! Very friendly, very knowledgable about the menu, the ingredients and taste and texture of many dishes. Great recommendations and kept an eye on us to make sure glades were full and that food at several points during our meal was satisfactory. Well done! We love this place. :)
Great food. Something for everyone on the menu. Very friendly servers.
We always love coming to Miijidaa! Great service and food. It is a Guelph gem!
Great location, delicious food. Sitting outside during summer time is very enjoyable.
Excellent service (Jocelyn) and good food! Will definitely be back. Great concept (green, local etc.)
Nice place, unique menu but unfortunately both my wife and I suffered from stomach cramps that night and for that reason alone we will not be returning.
From the moment we entered, we were impressed by the warm and creative atmosphere. We were there for our anniversary and enjoyed the Wednesday date night menu. $49. We started with the HAY SMOKED ARCTIC CHAR. My husband loved it and although I'm not a big fish eater, I enjoyed it very much. Fresh and tasty! I ordered the BRAISED BEEF CHEEKS
and my husband ordered the PAN ROASTED CHICKEN. All DELICIOUS and beautifully presented! We finished up with Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. YUM!!! Great value for great food and fantastic service. To top off our lovely little date we were surprised with an anniversary card from the restaurant. What a lovely personal touch. We will definitely be bringing back the kiddos to enjoy this gem of a place!
I would highly recommend the Mijiida cafe! You won't be disappointed.
Service and food was great as always. Love the patio out back - a nice, quiet patch of paradise in the middle of downtown!
One of our favourite Restaurants in Guelph. very friendly staff, excellent food and very nice ambiance.
Excellent food and service! The care our server and the kitchen took was phenominal! We have a family member with allergies that has a difficult time eating out - at Mijidaa it was made to be a relaxing and very pleasant evening, with more options than ever expected!
