Sapphire Cafe & Lounge


SAPPHIRE Cafe & Lounge is an independently owned restaurant and bar located on the busy street corner of Macdonell and Wilson in downtown Guelph.  We specialize in fresh, flavourful food, fair-trade family plantation coffee, premium cocktails, martinis, a handful of fine beers, wines, quality juices and real sodas.  Our coffee is the finest, professionally prepared by trained baristas and we feature our own custom roasts.  Sapphire is your friendly neighbourhood cafe and bar with a clean, modern decor and a warm charm.

We focus on fresh produce with international recipes and try our best to support fair-trade, organic and/or family farms, serving you with professionalism and charm.
