Guru Coffee House in Gloucester

I have visited Guru Coffee house on Brunswick Road in Gloucester many times. So I thought I would write about the recent visits. On many occasions I visited with my dog, and both were enjoyable.

The eatery is between the city centre and Gloucester Park on Brunswick road, Guru has 2 floors for eating or drinking and a covered outside area. There are a variety of seating options, including a variety of sized table, tables with stools and my favourite the sofa or armchairs on both floors.

Dog Friendly

I called ahead to check if dogs were welcome inside and yay they were; the puppy was even brought a bowl of water to where we were sitting. The staff were welcoming to both human and canine guests, and other diners even popped over to pet the dog.

The Menu

Guru has an extensive menu for food, from breakfasts to a grill menu. They serve healthy bowl foods, including many vegan/vegetarian options. They have a low carb section on their menu. I sampled their Chilli Con Carne with cauliflower rice and smashed avocado, very nice.


Drinks include a variety of coffee and tea options, canned soft drinks, juice and smoothie options too. I sampled a shot of the detox that the server let us try. Also, the Energiser health juice, which includes; apple, celery, orange, pear and sweet potato. They also serve a selection of alcoholic beverages, including wine, cider and beer.

My Visits

On the first visit, I opted for San Pellegrino pomegranate, then the lemon and mint drink.

For lunch, I opted for a double Highland Venison burger. They served this with sauteed potatoes with rosemary and garlic, this was delicious and very filling.

For dessert I enjoyed a slice of their coffee cake, wanted more, but showed some restraint.

On my second visit, I mixed things up, this time opting for a lamb and feta burger. Different from the one that I had had a year previously with salad and sweet potato fries.

Lamb & Feta Burger

This was really juicy and flavourful and the sweet potato chips were crispy.

On my recent visit in May 2021 the menu has slightly changed, however it still looks great. I opted for the ginger health drink with their Stateside bratwurst, which was topped with pulled pork.

Also enjoyed on this visit was the guru’s small English breakfast, which I was told was great too. This included all the usual treats, including bacon, scrambled egg and sausage.

A hidden gem IMO and somewhere I will return too, as it seems unique, has healthy options and delighted that the dog was welcome. You can find out more about Guru on their website
