“If you like that talented group of people; if you’ve been hankering for a taste of Québec right here in Cambridge, with a touch of New England…Café du Pays is a no-brainer,” Eater Boston editor Rachel Leah Blumenthal wrote. “And especially with winter coming, the restaurant’s hearty meats, irresistible house-made sourdough, and maple-tinged desserts and drinks will be the perfect antidote to the cold weather.”

Blumenthal also deemed Cafe du Pays the only local place to enjoy true French-Canadian cuisine – like the ever-popular poutine – without having to travel North.
Poutine is now available til 11pm Tuesday – Sunday.•••Crispy fries, meat gravy, & cheese curds.
