I made and reservation unknowing that it was for a buffet brunch. I don’t love that brunch was the only option on a Sunday afternoon. $35 was way too much for what was offered and what I ate.

The food was fine, certainly not bad but not outstanding. The service was fine, although we had to look for our server a couple of times. Pace was generally pretty good. But it was truly quite over priced.

The price has increased from $30 to $35 per person for brunch. $30 was already a stretch, for $35 I no longer feel I can justify the value.

The pizza is great and the atmosphere is fantastic.
Unfortunately the service was not as great. It took almost 15 minutes for our server to finally acknowledge that we were even there. He seemed uninterested in our needs.

I think more effort has to be put into meal presentation. I had a roast chicken with side of soup and that’s all it came with. I think a dinner platter has to come with a vegetable and a potato or rice as a side for The price you charge.

I invited an out of town business colleague to lunch having eaten at the Bread Bar before. You made me look great! Even though our server was being trained, she took beautiful care of us, and she and her trainer were seamless in their service - my guest mentioned the welcoming vibe.

The choices for healthy food were impressive, and our dishes were really creative and delicious. And the pie that we each indulged in was outstanding! As we left, my guest was considering when he could bring his wife for dinner.

Even though the Bread Bar is a bustling place, I always feel l valued as a customer and pampered as a diner. You gotta go!

Great place to go for lunch in Guelph. The hummus on the bread plate was outstanding. Pizza was very good - we had the apple and bacon and an arugula salad. We live in NY and have high pizza standards- they met them. Plan to return to the Bread Bar the next time we are in Guelph.

A family favourite - whenever we go out for a meal it seems to be here! Service is always great. Even if you've had something before there's always a little bit of a unique twist.

Sunday, Sept 30, 2018, 5:45 reservation. All round perfect. Was a bit noisy but music was turned down on request. Food excellent, perhaps best pizza outside of Italy. Prices seemed appropriate. Note visited mid August. One pizza was prepared wrong. It was promptly replaced (original left of others) and a nice box of sweets supplied as a gift. Wonderful. Highly recommend!

Had a great experience at Bread Bar for Sunday brunch. The only thing I didn't love was the price, which came to $90 after tax and tip for 2 people - but that's expected for a place that only buys local ingredients. I would recommend something like this a lot more of the price was more affordable.

Great food in general, a bit pricey for what you get. Not very good for anyone with food allergies. Vegan friend had maybe 2 options on the menu that had to be altered to suit her diet and a gluten free friend had the same issue.

Usually find the food quite flavorful but two of us found the mac’n cheese lacking in cheese flavor. Third person loved his umami burger and the fries.
I prefer your pizzas. Otherwise it’s a fun place though we all find the wine to be overpriced considering the quality.

Food was excellent, the only comment I would add is to go easy on the chillies, they are supposed to enhance/ compliment the other flavours and not overpower them. My wife had the fried Brussels Sprouts appetizer but the red chillies just killed them.

Upon booking I was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and I noted we were celebrating a birthday. (nothing was done at end of dinner I had to mention to server and my daughter was not surprised)

Our pizza was under cooked (we asked for well done) so we asked to cook a bit more, came back very salty.
(apparently they re drizzle with oil and salt after it comes out of oven)

We were compensated with cookies. Well that's not a dinner we should have had a new pizza!!!!!!!!!!!

The food was excellent, however the service was poor last night. We were seated right away and were offered water as usual, however I indicated needing a minute to decide on my drink order and was forgotten about for fifteen minutes. Also, my dirty salad plate was left on the table, even after my main course arrived, and was only picked up when my boyfriend moved it to his side of the table. This, despite the waitress walking empty-handed past our table at least five times. Our server did not deserve her tip that's for sure.

We had a nice visit to Bread Bar. We've both been many times and our overall experience has been great. Definitely the best pizza in our neighbourhood and we do enjoy the cocktails. Use of seasonal ingredients helps keep the menu interesting. Few other restaurants do as good a job in that department.
