Artisan Coffee, Fresh Baked Goods, Smoothies and Paninis
Highlight New French-Inspired Jersey City Social Gathering Place
JERSEY CITY, NJ — Canard Café Bar, a French-inspired café and lounge known for serving unparalleled coffee, freshly baked croissants, and homemade desserts, has opened a new outpost in Jersey City Urby, located at 200 Greene Street.
Canard Café Bar was founded by Sebastien Muller, Director of Operations for Le District, the premier French market and food hall located in Brookfield Place. The café’s name is inspired by the French custom of canard, dipping a sugar cube in coffee as a treat. Following a successful launch in Manhattan’s Financial District, Muller will be bringing Canard’s highly curated food and beverage menu across the Hudson River to Jersey City Urby.
“With Canard, we’re creating a lively environment for people to enjoy delicious coffee, pastries and bites throughout the day,” says Muller. “We’re thrilled to be opening in the Jersey City Urby where we will be part of a community that can share in our culture and is a hub for the neighborhood to stop in for a coffee, work, or meet with friends.”
French Chef Anthony Matteu and his team will offer an all-day experience for guests to connect and socialize in a casual setting. Canard Café Bar’s extensive cuisine items will feature breakfast, lunch, and dessert items, including classic egg sandwiches, crepes, apple turnovers, blueberry lemon scones, and mini madeleines. More substantial dishes comprise a variety of quiches and sandwiches, including a Mediterranean quiche, avocado toast, and a croque madame, as well as a mix of salads.
Mouthwatering desserts include Belgian chocolate mousse, classic key lime pie, biscotti crust cheesecake, and apple cinnamon crumble. The drink menu consists of hot and iced coffee, espressos, lattes, teas, smoothies, fresh squeezed juices, and protein shakes.
Canard Café Bar will be located in the lobby of the 69-story apartment tower, Jersey City Urby. Known for its energized shared social spaces and inspired design, Urby partnered with the Canard Team to further enhance the connection between residents and their surroundings.
“We’re excited to bring this fresh concept to Jersey City,” said David Barry, founder and CEO of Urby. “The addition of Canard Café Bar reflects Urby’s commitment to creating vibrant community spaces for residents and locals.”
Canard Café at Jersey City Urby will be open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm.
