Popover King to Open in Boston's North Station/Haymarket Area

by Marc Hurwitz

A bakery-cafe that focuses on a beloved regional food item is on its way to Boston.

According to a poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Popover King is opening on Canal Street between North Station and Haymarket in the city's West End area. The website and Facebook page for the business indicate that a variety of popover options will be offered at the shop, while the "about" section of its Facebook page mentions that it will be a "bakery/cafe by day and an elegant bistro by night," celebrating "the venerable New England popover and the rich classic tastes of the region." (Coffee, espresso, and cappuccino will also be available at the place, according to the menu on its website.)

No specific opening date has been given as of yet for Popover King, so stay tuned for updates.

The address for this upcoming bakery-cafe in Boston is: Popover King, 74 Canal Street, Boston, MA, 02114. Its website can be found at
