Just moved here. Last night ate at Atmosphere Cafe and it was *awful*. I read two positive comments here about this place and was sorely disappointed. Started with the quail egg, roasted potato & spinach salad. The salad was entirely devoid of seasoning. It was like eating plain spinach. Not even a pinch of salt. Next was the chicken & duck liver pate. I think it came from a can. It was actually watery on the bottom. But the worst was the pizza. I couldn't even eat it. I had the sausage and portobello pizza. On each slice there were five roasted whole cloves of garlic - five per slice - who can eat that? Toppings were piled so high so that nothing was cooked properly. In particular, the sausage looked like it only been boiled, no searing at all. And the thin crust pizza was soggy. I love pizza, and was really looking forward to this meal - big fat disappointment. I could have done better myself. The service was bad too - waitress couldn't even remember the specials and we waited 10 minutes before she returned with her notes. Food was brought the wrong table, and they had a hard time keeping our water glasses filled up.
Is there any place really stellar to eat in Guelph or am I going to have to drive to TO every time I want a good meal?
