Very nice cheesecake, good apple pie, excellent foamy choco coffee. Yes a little bit pricy, but we thought we were worth it.

It is way too crowded and the space between the tables is as little as if you are sitting with other people, and not in a good cozy way. It is pricy. But you have a lot of choices for desserts. The brunch is good but you pay around 25€ which makes you have better expectations.

I like this place because it is elegant the way Milan can be without gold or diamonds but respectful of good tasty things. this is with American flavor but the Italian easy going way. prices are pretty high but once in a while for lazy breakfast or is ok really ok.

I was visiting a friend in Milano when he took me to California Bakery and although I'm definitely not a sweets person I fell in love with their maple syrup pancake.They had really good breakfast menu which Im trying for sure when I go back to Italy.

This resturant is good, the cheesecakes are outstanding (and I lived 5 years in the States), the ice coffees great, same with the teas... problem? The price is just too much! For the service you get the prices are insane, and not worth it! I would suggest to go to have a snack, but no dinner. I feel like I... More
