The place is a good choice for a quick bite to eat - one of the best options in the vicinity. The sandwiches are nice, as well as the desserts.

We had some pancakes that didn't feel fresh also the omelette is not to tasty, the beagle was ok with fresh ingredients. The only thing that deserves your money is the cappuccino.

This is a it states on the name a typical American bakery . Great cheesecakes and nice for a brief stop or a snack but not for a meal. Good service and not too expensive but not worth going out of your way to try.

Those were not eggs benedict, I am sorry, and on top of that they were cold. Everything for 20 euros each! I wouldn't pay more than 5 euros for such food, I will never... More

Lovely place for a good breakfast brunch in Milan. Very close to the main square but without being sourrunded by many tourists. I defenetly say it is a good breakfast place American style. Brunch is closer to a full American breakfast cafe, do not expect thos brunch buffet hotel like

The cheesecake was really really good. The pancakes were served cold, and we asked for them to be warmed and still returned to the table warm. The waiter was really nice and didn't charge us for the pancakes, he did say they are usually a specialty, however looking at the other reviews looks like our pancake experience is not a... More

Worst pancakes I ever had. They were cold and tasted like cake. The lady who was serving got mad when I asked her to warm them up. My friend ordered a burger and it was really good, but the pancakes were TERRIBLE. The french fries were excelent though.

Been here for a coffee, which was ok (nothing special). When we went to pay I was a bit surprised since beside the coffee there was an extra charge of 1.3€ per person for service. Will not return.
