L'effet-mer, a caterer like no other

your ultimate place to get seafood and fish prepared in a warm place

The L'effet-mer caterer, specializing in seafood, offers a ready-to-eat counter, in-home chef service, and oyster bar service for private and corporate events.

We want to move away from the conventional catering service by offering a friendly and fun service. We want to have fun with you during your events so that the overall experience is as pleasant as possible. Obviously, the quality of the product and the professionalism are essential. If you come to visit us at the counter, you will immediately see the warm energy. You will be charmed by the mermaids, the plants, and the window dining counter which is one of a kind.

At the ready-to-eat level, we want to make seafood and fish accessible and affordable. We want to democratize the offer of these products which were only found in restaurants or fishmongers. It is now possible to come and get a dozen oysters or a tartare in less than 5 minutes! Some items are also available on Doordash and UberEats.

We also offer seafood platters. These can be created from ready-to-eat items, but also with more premium seafood and fish, available on request. They must be ordered between 24 and 48 hours in advance.

On site, we sell spicy sauces from Piko microsauceries (on Duluth) and Mark's sauce. You can also buy merchandise: pullovers, t-shirts, oyster knives, and even oyster shell earrings!
