Wonderful flavours!

We tried a quesadilla and a Thai curry, with a sweet potato soup and a salad accompaniment. All were beautifully presented and full of bright distinct flavours. It's unfortunate... read more

Just passing through en route from Michigan to Toronto, and chanced upon this cafe on the web....a very lucky accident. We tried a quesadilla and a Thai curry, with a sweet potato soup and a salad accompaniment. All were beautifully presented and full of bright distinct flavours. It's unfortunate we live 300 km away....otherwise, we would be regulars.

Great atmosphere and outstanding food and service! From their grand opening until now the food and hospitality at The Wired Up Pugs has been second to none. I discovered them by accident but would recommend that you make the trip on purpose. Head down with your pooch, enjoy a lunch on their patio and take a walk down one of... More

Millrace Folk Festival means another visit to Wired up pugs. Although the chef had been caught in traffic and necessitate a wait, the kids running the place handled the situation well. As usual the food was fine and the service prompt and polite. Glad to see they are so well thought of in Cambridge. I wanted to try some place... More

Malaysian curry tortilla was the best dish in town! This is a welcoming little spot in Galt with a very friendly owner who takes pride in his food.

Maybe not what we expected based on the name as Wired Up Pugs is in a very old cottage with its own charm. The chef and waiter obviously genuinely care about the patrons and their enjoyment of their meal as they are willing to adjust your menu choice to meet your requirements. We enjoyed a wild seafood pasta dish and... More

The Wired Up Pugs was recommended to us by friends so being the foodies that we are we thought we would give it a try and we are very happy we did. As you enter the restaurant, the walls are filled with stories and history of the owners and their journey. As you walk into the restaurant, you pass the... More

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 the careful attention of the owner to his... 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
