A piece of cake can be up to 8 Euros so overpriced from my point of view but delicious. I went there in a boring Sunday night but the ambient was fine.

We had a huge slice of cake (even though we chose the "slim" one, it was more than enough) for 5€ and two mini cakes (1,5€ each) that the waiter selected (I wanted to be surprised). The staff spoke good English and was very polite.

Very good brunch with a lot of food only for 15 euro! You can have 2 pancakes, fresh orange juice, a side dish and a coffee for it and it was very good!

Crowded place with extremely rude staff, they seemed bothered to bring our food, plus they started to make stories up or to accept credit cards and to not allow us to split the check. Oh, did I mention it's overpriced for what you get?

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
