A casual place with the most friendly and sincere service I've had in a while. All of us left with a smile on our face. This type of commitment to customer care is rare, hold on to it.

Outrageous price for a piece of cake 8 Euros, 4 Euros for a cup (no more) of tea, plus 2 Euros for service. The place needs cleaning and somebody should have the courage of wasting cracked tea pots...

The quality is the same as all other CB coffee shops but the staff are so kind. It was late night but the guys were so positive with smile. Not easy seeing everywhere

This is one of my little grandson's favorite places to eat. I like that there's a kids menu, he could hardly finish though so the portion was not tiny. Everything seemed fresh and tasty and my grandson got a very health fresh juice. We all enjoyed it here & in good weather you can sit outside.

You generously pay for a very nervous and inefficient service in peak hours (e.g. sunday morning), with terrible wait just for a very uncomfortable coffe at the bar. Quality of cakes has decreased during last years (why all that cinnamon in a cheesecake?). Very noisy inside, but the worst thing was the apparently nice outside tables. I was there with... More

Cozy cafe perfect for breakfast. I like the athmosphere, staff is very friendly and the selection is pretty good with different cakes, waffles, muffins etc (I would recommend the carrot cake). A bit pricey but it's worth for the food and enviroment. It can be very crowded on the weekend, not my favorite time to go..best early in the morning.... More

Cool place to hang out to drink a good selection of tea, some homemade pastries, maybe even a banana split if you're out of sugar. Price is quite high but this is Milan.

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
