The cafe is quite spacious and beautifully decorated. It's not cheap but certainly good value for money. The cakes and small pastries are rich and decadent, the stuff friendly and the coffee brilliant. Put these together and you have a great pastry shop that you might want to visit.

The apple pie I got was pretty special, with a soft lime taste. The best one was the chocolate mousse cake, which also had a raspberry back-taste. Service, which was... More

I visit this place every time I am in Milan. They have great Italian pastries and one of the best chocolates in Milan (chef owned many awards). Best place to buy panetone in the Christmas time and Colomba for Eastern.
