Welcome to the Caribou café !

A veritable institution in Poitiers for wining and dining out, the Caribou Café is a Canadian bar-restaurant seating 120 and situated in the heart of the town, close to the market place and a stone’s throw from the Cordeliers shopping centre.

In a cosy and authentic setting, we provide specialities inspired by Canadian culture, and typical recipies from the Quebec region. To accompany your double maple syrup hamburger or your surf & turf, we offer a wide range of beers imported from Quebec (Griffon, St-Ambroise, Pisse du Caribou...), as well as other more classic beverages.
Our Poitevin “trappers’ meeting-place” is on two levels and is decorated in an original and typically Quebec style. The panelled walls are hung with snowshoes, beaver traps, photos of winter scenes and ice-hockey sticks. Welcome to our innovative Sugar House, where you will be transported into a world of good-natured conviviality !
