A gem in paste clothing

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The first time we sat on the patio on a hot day and did not really appreciate the opportunity to eat and taste excellent Asian food. The second time we sat indoors after making a reservation. Although the reservation was not necessary it demonstrated... read more

Cruising home along the 401, my wife was searching Trip Advisor for a great Bistro experience and The Wired Up Pugs Cafe caught her attention. Well worth the short diversion (10 to 15 min south of the 401), we were delighted with our visit and will return. Following the owner's (?) recommendation we received delicious dinners, prepared with fresh ingredients,... More

Stopped by for the first time for lunch. The food and service were both excellent. Had a very different appetizer - can't even describe it but very good. Gazpacho soup was very complex flavours and my panini was amazing. I will be back.

if you are looking for a delicious meal made using fresh ingredients this is the place to eat! Gluten free options abound. When my daughter and I last had lunch at the Wired Up Pugs the owner who was held up in construction not only called his staff to let them know he would be late, but he also requested... More

Had a light lunch there today. Their Roasted red pepper and sweet potato soup was excellent: light, tasty, and perfectly spiced. The rice crackers served with the soup were so good that I ended up buying some of the packages to go. The dark chocolate salted cheesecake was delicious. I do wish for desserts they would offer a "just a... More

My husband and I tried Wired up Pugs for the first time last night (May 22, 2015) and we will definitely be back. Our food was amazing. My husband had the red Thai curry with tilapia and he said it was one of the best currys he ever ate (and he gets a lot of curry). I had the Tilapia... More

This little gem is by far the best in Cambridge. The only thing that is better then the food is the hospitality and passion of the chef/owners. You are welcomed as soon as you walk into the door. When you read or hear people about supporting local and eating local, this is the place they are talking about!

Went with friends for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was fantastic, fresh and made to our specifications. Mouth watering Red Pepper soup is a "must try". Since all meals are made to order and are freshly made you need to have time to enjoy the experience and not be in a rush. Lovely presentation of the food... More

I went here last weekend with a few friends for dinner, and we all absolutely loved it! The food was superb, the servers and bartender friendly and chatty, and the atmosphere extremely welcoming. Will definitely be returning in the near future! My new favorite restaurant in Cambridge.
