La Poutine is a cozy little spot on the edge of the U of A campus where we serve up faithful Quebecois poutine, as well as countless variations.


Poutine. It couldn’t be any more Canadian.

La Poutine opened it's doors in May 2011 inside the historic Garneau Theatre Building. The concept was built out of for poutine, love for Canada and a love for serving the community. On our team you will find passionate individuals who'll guide you through the menu and help you build the poutine of your dreams. 

What is Poutine, you ask? Poutine is a dish created in Quebec in the 1950's consisting of fries, cheese curds and piping hot gravy. The word "poutine" is rumoured to mean "hot mess" in old french slang.

At La Poutine, we aim to elevate the traditional 1950's poutine by using fresh, homemade and local ingredients. Each poutine is crafted with love and each component has been carefully sourced:

Fries: Our fries are hand-cut from locally grown russet potatoes and twice fried in canola oil. 

Cheese Curds: Our curds are brought in from La Belle Provence, Quebec for that authentic squeak.

Gravy: We offer 3 types of gravy: Traditional gravy, Beef-Style gravy + Gluten-free.

Our petit restaurant has 10 seats inside and 12 outside (Oui! Even in the Winter!)  We look forward to welcoming you!
