Baristello Outremont: Coffee, pizza, sandwiches, & more

Piero Ciampoli is a legend in Montreal’s coffee scene. He worked for many years as a barista at San Simeon before opening his first café on Jarry. Baristello Outremont is the friendly entrepreneur’s second project, and upon entering, you quickly realize that you’re dealing with a team of professionals.

Beautiful space and ideal location

Located in the heart of the Université de Montréal’s MIL campus, Baristello Outremont’s imposing, modern space is sure to turn heads. “We were inspired by northern Italy. In Turin, for example, cafés are prestigious, warm and grandiose monuments. That’s what we’ve tried to recreate here,” explains Piero.

The Baristello team has won its bet. It’s impossible to ignore the address’s high ceilings and large bay windows. In fact, the establishment is on our list of the most beautiful cafés in Montreal!

A complete Italian offer

Coffee in all its forms, pizzas, sandwiches, Italian sodas, sweets from Café Dei Campi – there’s something for everyone.

“Our pizzas respect the Italian tradition. It’s exactly what my grandmother used to make on Sunday evenings. We serve a soft, comforting pizza just like they do in southern Italy,” continues the owner of Baristello Outremont.

A place to connect

Baristello Outremont breaks away from the image of trendy cafés where you go to work in front of your computer with headphones firmly in your ears. Here, we take the time to live, to talk, and to create bonds by chatting as we should in a café.

“The café is just the bridge. The soul of Baristello Outremont lies in conversation and sharing” – Piero Ciampoli
