I've been to this Second Cup location many times, it is a nice little cozy location at the corner of Gordon Street and College Avenue West just up the road from the University and the Veterinary College Small Animal Clinic.

As I come from a Latin American coffee-producing country, it is always difficult to find a coffee that compares to the quality of what I find back home.

I met a friend here for coffee. It has a nice atmosphere. The coffee was really fresh and delicious. We shared a large piece of coffee cake. The serving sizes are quite large for one person. I would return again.

This was the nearest place to the Delta Guelph to get a latte or espresso, and the first chance for me to explore a coffee house chain in Canada. I'm impressed ... better mocha than Starbucks (not so sweet), almost as good as the ones at our local Santa Cruz spots.

I am in here so often, they know my usual! People are great, coffee's out of this world. Sandwiches are good, but a little expensive. I mainly come for the coffee, comfy chairs, and free wi-Fi. This place is awesome!

I've visited regularly, always exceeds expectations. Located close to the University, a public Gallery, and Dowtown. Free Internet Service. Great variety of art on display.

don't like the new ownership and they need to be far more environmentally responsible.
