Since Pierre has retired , his son has taken over . Hours are inconsistent , and Quebec style poutine not as good . Perhaps food prep could be more sanitary , as in use nitrile gloves or wash their hands before handling cheese curd !

I think this is the THIRD time I’ve had to mention this. CHANGE YOUR HOURS ON YOUR WEBSITE. They’re clearly incorrect. For the third time now on a day “you’re open” I show up on a Tuesday afternoon at 4 AND NOBODY IS THERE AGAIN....More

Honestly some of the best poutine I've ever had outside of Quebec! Smoked meat sandwiches are also great. Prices are a bit high for large portions but none of the items on the menu will leave you feeling hungry.

The poutine is pretty good, the hotdogs are not the best. The coleslaw they use for the hotdogs is too vinegary and they put too much on along with too much mustard and relish and onions, so the hotdogs become very cold. the prices are...More

This is the kind of poutine I grew up eating. It's just like the chip trucks from my hometown which I always thought were the best kind. So glad I found this place, will be going back for sure!!

I must admit - I've only gone to Pierre's after a night at the pub/bar, but from what I recall, each time I eat it, it's absolutely delicious poutine.

Pierre's poutine is a dirty little cafe in downtown guelph. The place could REALLY go for a sprucing up. Some of the walls have holes and cracks, the floor is old laminate. Luckily, you don't need a pleasant cafe in order to make good poutine....More
