A Little About Us
Famous Peppers is a family owned and operated restaurant which began in the heart of the historic village of Cardigan, Prince Edward Island, opening our first restaurant on the 15th of December 2003 to a spectacular winter storm and full community support. In fact, the level of support and commitment from the community enabled Famous Peppers to remain open year round, providing healthy food to local families, schools and businesses. Our focus from day one has been healthy, locally produced and grown products for our pizzas. Famous Peppers is the only pizza restaurant to exclusively use fresh beef, pork and chicken products grown in Atlantic Canada and produced on PEI, containing no gluten, hormones or preservatives. We use extra virgin olive oil and canola oil when making our two different styles of pizza crusts – white flour Parmesan oregano and whole wheat. We also have Gluten Free crusts available. Our in house pizza sauce is made using fresh herbs, superior tomatoes, and spices providing an exciting and mysteriously tangy base for our unique hand tossed pizza pies. Our extremely delicious in house maple cream sauce is as excellent alternative to pizza sauce, and is featured on several of our signature pizzas. We also brush the crust with a garlic infused olive oil and finish it off with Parmesan cheese as it comes out of our oven. With the help of a wonderfully supportive community, Famous Peppers has had the opportunity to expand and relocate to Charlottetown PEI, while opening new locations in Montague PEI and Shediac NB (which has since relocated to Dieppe NB). A million thanks to the residents of Cardigan, Eastern Prince Edward Island, who helped us get started, and everyone else who has supported us since. It is truly an honour to have grown as a business with you.
