Notre-Dame West has a new bakery-patisserie: Rosetta has opened its doors in St-Henri, doing pastries, pies, macarons, and pizza in the space formerly housing arts and crafts store Ajf.
Le Journal de Montréal reports that co-owners Maria Cammalleri and her son have experience in the pastry business: they also own the eight-year-old patisserie Rococo, which has two locations, in Anjou and Greenfield Park on the South Shore.
But while Rococo focuses more on French pastry (Cammalleri’s specialty), Rosetta is more Italian, though it won’t stick strictly to Italian goods — case in point, the various macarons on offer.
According to Le Journal, it’s an hommage to Cammalleri’s mom, Rosetta, “who did two things in life: take care of [Cammalleri’s] father, and cook.” Rosetta is involved with the bakery, too: they’re using her cookie recipes, and Rosetta makes fresh vegetable caponata for the bakery, too.
STATUS — Rosetta is open at 3631 Notre-Dame West from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Closed Mondays.
