One of the tallest buildings in Downtown Jersey City will be getting a new café just days after the business launched their initial New York City outpost.

9 Bar Cafe closed their storefront at 200 Greene Street last month, leaving vacant space on the ground floor at the 69-story Urby. But activity will soon come roaring back to the site as a new venture dubbed Canard Café Bar will be opening on Saturday, March 19.

The business has been developed by Gaston Ferreyra and Sebastien Muller, the latter of which serves as Director of Operations for Le District inside Manhattan’s Brookfield Place. The new café’s name is inspired by the French custom of canard, which involves dipping a sugar cube in coffee as a treat.

The first Canard Café Bar opened in Manhattan’s Financial District earlier this month and French Chef Anthony Matteu’s menu will now be crossing the Hudson River. The Jersey City outpost aims to offer an all-day experience for guests to socialize alongside breakfast, lunch, and dessert items that include classic egg sandwiches, crepes, apple turnovers, blueberry lemon scones, and mini madeleines.

“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.”

More substantial dishes at Canard Café Bar will include Mediterranean quiche, avocado toast, a croque madame, and a mix of salads. Desserts like Belgian chocolate mousse, classic key lime pie, biscotti crust cheesecake, and apple cinnamon crumble will be featured, and the drink menu includes hot and iced coffee, espressos, lattes, teas, smoothies, fresh-squeezed juices, and protein shakes.

Canard Café Bar has set up an Instagram account at the handle @canardcafebar and will operate Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., with weekend hours spanning 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
