Café Cova is an incredible establishment. It's extremely expensive. It's crowded. You often have to wait in line to get a seat. The tables are small. The portions are small. But on most days it's full of people.
Why? The old rule of real estate: location, location, location. Caffe Cova sits on the corner of the Via Monte Napoleone and the Via Sant Andrea. It's surrounded by boutiques with names such as Versace, Gucci, Armani, Etro and so on. Need I say more?
If you sit there for a while you'll see Milanese money coming by for a coffee, some pastry or a typical Italian bitter cocktail. Sitting between the real Milanese are people from all over the world. Russians, Chinese, Japanese, South Americans, French, Arabs, Israëli..... I don't think there's any coffee bar in the world where I've heard more languages being spoken than at Caffe Cova.
