I need a world of "Trendy" and "Corporate" chains, the Vienna Restaurant in downtown Guelph is old school AUTHENTIC. GREAT breakfast selections that do not leave you hungry, or poor. It is a favourite destination for a family gathering Sunday breakfast.

This restaurant started in 1901, and although I have lived in Guelph for 16 of the last 18 years I had never heard of it. We went for a late breakfast and the place was very busy but service was very attentive and the food was top notch for breakfast fare at very reasonable prices.

Their food is so good here that they don't make reservations so make sure to get there early. It was packed and there's a reason for that. Amazing food, great quality and fast enough service for the amount of people there were. Definitely coming back!!!

Yes it's a typical "breakfast special" place but the cleanliness makes you forget they've been a restaurant for over a hundred years. That's cool and deserving of support! Great old pictures of Guelph adorn the walls. Go here and when you say you've just been to Vienna, everyone will know what you mean.

This place was recommended to us for breakfast. We took 3 hungry university students there and it great. The portions are large, the price is fair and the food is fresh. It has a diner feel and good service. We will go back for sure.

Upon arriving at 10.30am the place was bustling and lively. We were seated within 4 minutes at a booth. The booth was clean and cozy for the four of us. The server was cheery and took our beverage order and returned immediately with piping hot coffees and chai. The coffee is bottomless and good. The breakfast meals were large, tasty... More

Tired restaurant, food and staff. This place is somewhere from the past. Of delis and dinners, it just needs a total overhaul. I love Germanic food but this place just turns out very plain and greasy food. No effort to improve their food or their dining experience, just feels like what might have once been popular has never bothered to... More

I love this place. It's cozy and unpretentious. The staff are friendly and super attentive. The booths are awesome (even if the seats are a little lumpy). I always the breakfast special ($5.49 on weekdays 8-10am). Their coffee is not great though.
