Profile Last Updated: October 01, 2008
This authentic little French deli and grocery store opened its doors in Calgary in June of 2008. Aptly termed from the French word that means grocery or general store, L’Epicerie serves up fresh wholesome deli sandwiches and stocks a pleasing variety of delicious regional food items, ranging from imported products and spices to rich breads and espresso coffee. L’Epicerie is located in the Victoria Crossing district just south of the downtown core. Strategically situated on 13 Avenue and 1st Street S.E., L’Epicerie is happy neighbours with another Calgary favourite - Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut. Wow, what a winning combination!
Owner & Chef
L’Epicerie owner Dominique Moussu wears two hats in this city. He owns and operates this exquisite new French deli, and he is an executive chef at Teatro, an acclaimed Italian restaurant in the city. Raised and trained in France, Moussu came to Canada in the mid-nineties and has since cultivated a following of food-lovers that went wild when he opened his own food stop. If his intention was to lure Calgarians with the fine spices and culinary delights of his homeland, he has succeeded to grand heights.
Tasty Morsels and More
Stop by L’Epicerie to sample incredible homemade pâté, fresh loaded deli sandwiches (with real Dijon mustard!), gourmet handmade chips, and apple truffles. Before or after you satisfy your hunger for amazing European treats, do a little shopping for some unique food product and items you won’t find on the shelves at Safeway. L’Epicerie stocks imported dry goods, European spices, specialty cheeses, dried fruits, chocolate wafers, and special European coffee blends. If you don’t speak French, just point and drool!
