This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today we feature Pierrick Heudes of Cafe l’amiral, in Moncton.
I OPENED MY CAFÉ BECAUSE I WANTED TO SHARE WHAT I LOVE FROM MY HOME OF ST. PIERRE ET MIQUELON WITH MY COMMUNITY HERE IN NEW BRUNSWICK.
The concept is quite simple: it’s a French café in the middle of Moncton. Where I’m from, it’s always crepes, pastries, and all that good stuff.
I kind of fell in love with the pastries and crepes so I decided to do just that in my café. It’s my way of bringing a taste of home to my city.
Cafe L’Amiral offers homemade quiche and croissants, salty and sweet crepes–some with a homemade sauce using French chocolate or my own recipe for peppercorn sauce, paninis, salads with homemade vinaigrette, and soups.
I try to make everything fresh and healthy.
