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.

The only thing we found was that with 5 people at the table there wasn't enough table space when our large size pizza came. But otherwise we love the Bread Bar and will be back in a week or so.

We had a 10:30 sitting and were seated right away. It was very busy and our server worked hard to keep up with everything. Food came out as it was prepared and sometimes with gaps in between but it never took too long. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and prefer the concept of ordering small tapas rather than heading to a brunch bar laden with food that people invariably take more than they can eat. The tapas dishes were just the right size to allow you to order 3 or 4 for yourself and enjoy wonderful flavors.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

I always enjoy the Bread Bar. On this visit they happily swapped asparagus for steak in the pasta dish and in the past I have brought vegan friends who have been able to eat well. The new mushroom app is good, but I found the cheese sauce a bit bland. The Arnold Palmer was tasty, the bread plate was a big hit, and the pizzas were excellent.

We were served by lovely Laura, who was friendly and responsive. The umami burger was absolutely delicious. And we caught a peek as some gorgeous pizzas on our way out. Have already told lots of friends. Definitely will be back to try brunch soon!

We visited Bread Bar for brunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was extremely busy upon our arrival, which is a mixed blessing. The servers were doing their best to keep up, but due to the amount of guests and how few servers were taking orders, there was a bit of a wait at times. The runners bringing the food out were unfortunately a bit careless, with some stopping just short of throwing the food on the table, without any real regard for who was to receive what. The food itself was good, though a few items were not as described on the menu (this is forgivable as the substitutions were good). The salad bar at the bar was well laid out, with a decent selection and well presented. Overall a good experience and a good value when you factor in that two drinks are included in the price.

We were so happy to have our son's birthday dinner at the Bread Bar. Our reservation wasn't ready on time but the waiter brought us some very yummy treats to tide us over and they were very gracious with our service. The pizza, soup, and salad were excellent. Nice beer selection. We will definitely come back. Thanks!

As always, excellent food, atmosphere and service. I mentioned in my Online reservation that it was for six plus a small child so we needed a high chair, and that it was for a 30th birthday party, but the message was not read. Not a huge deal, they didn’t have the seating set up but they changed it quickly, and no mention of the birthday, but it would have been nice. Other than that, love the place!

Always enjoy this restaurant when in Guelph. Local craft beers to choose from, different items on the menu and the same items are all very good. Yesterday we had the fried Brussels sprouts as an app to share, and they were excellent. As was the pizza and burger etc.

I yawn at salads, but the quinoa was a pleasure and the short rib was melt-in-your-mouth.
Couldn't even finish it all which is rare for me.

Always a great brunch with lots of food plates within a reasonable time. Didnt feel rushed. Love the bar area food. Scones delicious!! Only negative waitress spilled my husbands Cesar and coffee on the table and onto our guests jeans and seating area. Very apologetic, was an accident but our guest was a little wet. No big deal. Our waitress was very efficient and still tipped her well.

Been there for dinner, this is the first time for brunch, food was excellent, different style for brunch ordering from a menu.
Prefer the dinner/lunch menus over the brunch.
Two alcohol drinks are included in price but no reduction in price if you don't have alcohol.
