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

This is probably one of the oldest caffès in Milan, with an old-fashioned decor and exquisite patisserie. I have been there many times and always appreciated the quality, the ambiance, and the courteous service. I was thus very unpleasantly surprised that, on the last two occasions I was there (in both cases, showing off the place to out-of-town friends), the... More

Came here after reading all the great Tripadvisor reviews and it truly is a beautiful pasticceria with all the old traditional shop fittings! I came here with my mum and we bought a few small cakes and pastries to eat later and they were truly delicious! I highly recommend the chocolate filled profiterole (I don't know what it's called but... More

Marchesi is one of the city's oldest caffès and the decor will bring you back to another era. Porcelain cups, silverplate spoons, and old fashioned glass cases for the pastries go hand in hand with the refined service you'll find here. There are no tables and seats; this is the kind of place where locals pop in for a quick... More

I reckon this is one of the most popular and oldest pasticceria in Milano, and once you ate the meringue stuffed with cream, you totally understand why! it's heaven!

We were drawn to this place because of the beautiful window decorations. During fashion week, they made cookies shaped like buttons, purses, and pattern pieces. Great place to have a break if you're doing a walking tour. You'll burn off all the calories. Everything is fresh and tasty.

I pop in here whenever I have the chance for a Saturday morning breakfast and it's always a great way to start the week-end. I love the place that has been preserved over the years maintaining its original flair. Croissants are simply delicious and the same goes for the pastry. Also, this is one of the pastry shops in Milan... More
