Popover King in Boston's North Station/Haymarket Area Has Closed

A bakery-cafe and restaurant that featured a beloved regional food item has shut down.

According to a tweet from @AlexDiPrato, Popover King is no longer in business, with a message from the Canal Street shop confirming that it has indeed closed its doors. The message does give what appears to be a glimmer of hope, however, saying that "We hope to someday come back," though no other details were given about a possible return, including whether it might return to its space or reopen elsewhere.

Popover King first opened in March of 2019, being a "bakery/cafe by day and an elegant bistro by night" and offering a variety of popover options; the place switched to takeout/curbside pickup and online ordering as the pandemic took hold this spring.

The address for Popover King was 74 Canal Street, Boston, MA, 02114.
