The Best Breakfast in Milan

This was the best breakfast we had during our week-long stay in Milan. We tried mostly everything in this little pasticceria, and we were pleasantly surprised. This place may look small and dusty from the outside, but the inside holds so many delicious confections. But, the true secret of this tiny... read more

The Pasticeria Marchesi in via Santa Maria alla Porta # 11 is a classic of Milan ... the specialty is the coffee taken at the bar, quickly, a shot and go, among the milanese business people and locals that visit this places since 1824 (or so they claim ... ) in any case, the quality of the coffee is indeed...

If you love dessert, you will like this place. We had cappuccino, some cookies and chocolate. They were simple, traditional, fresh baked, not too sweet, and delicious. You must try small bread(looks like meringue) dessert stuffed with cream (or chocolate cream. Don't remember the name). Bad: No seating area

I admit that we visited this pasticceria as I needed to use the toilet. On entering we found it full of hustle and bustle which gave it a great atmosphere. There are no seats so everyone was drinking coffee at the counter. While my husband ordered two espressos I went in search of the ladies. I asked the lady behind... More

In Milan it's the best. The service is very polite and everything is special. Coffee is good too. I advice the panettone during Christmas time.

Vienna has Demel, Milan has Marchesi. I only miss a table for spending few minutes reading still a place to go. Try chocolates and pastries. Coffee is excellent...

Not only coffee, cappuccino and pastries. Also the best "aperitivo" in town, with a wide selection of well done cocktail drinks and up-for-grabs snacks. 7 to 8 PM. Closure at 8 PM is implacable. Fun guaranteed. Don't miss it.

Our native Milanese friends assured us this was the best coffee in Milan. This is Italian style break-time. Drink the coffee standing at the bar or while eyeing some ridiculously rich looking pastry.

Un caffe, a quick slurp with perhaps a piece of delicious pastry and off you go. Quick with quality. Superb.

And my favourite morning haunt when in Milano. I head here for caffe and brioches, heavenly delicious. Happy to wake up half an hour earlier to get on tram 16, or just go there on foot. Off the tourist track, at the corner of an 18th century building and the interior is of the early 19th, with a brass counter,... More
