5 places to find popovers in Boston

The airy pastry has roots going back to the 1800s, and they remain a fan favorite at many bakeries in the New England area.

We see it too, popovers have been popping up on more menus. The pastry is a fluffy roll made with an egg batter, similar to Yorkshire pudding, and it’s believed settlers brought the recipe to New England in the 1800s.

Want to try this treat? Try popping into one of these five local shops:

  • The Popover Lady — This shop in Boston Public Market has sweet and savory popovers, plus sandwiches made on a popover.
  • Ula Cafe — This Jamaica Plain bakery makes its popovers every morning, and they tend to sell out fast.
  • Wood Hill Pier 4 — You can get a single, warm popover during brunch, but the lobster popover (think: akin to a lobster roll) is a fan favorite.
  • Boston Chops — Head to the South End restaurant during brunch hours for a popover basket.
  • Clover Food Lab — There are over a dozen locations in the Boston metro area where you can get a popover with carrot marmalade.
