Situated in the city’s Golden Triangle of Via Monte Napoleone, Via della Spiga and a few famous shopping streets in between, the Louis Vuitton-owned Pasticceria Cova has been the place to go for a cappuccino for two centuries. Take part in people-watching at its finest, as people flock in from surrounding designer stores.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Bar Martini is just as good for a lunchtime hot beverage as it is for dinner and drinks. The venue serves a range of delicious beverages, including offerings with hazelnut chocolate, white chocolate, whipped cream and chocolate chips, plus amaretto di Saronno. The intimate venue brings the outdoors in, with greenery as a contrast against the black surfaces.
Don’t miss the gorgeous breakfast spread at the hotel, which takes its name from the Italian jewellery and fragrance brand. It offers classic pastries with juice and coffee or an American version with eggs made your way. The luxurious designer space has been replicated with branches across the world, including London, Bali and Tokyo.
This poolside eatery by designers Dean and Dan Caten, also known as Dsquared2, was launched during Milan Fashion Week in September 2013. The pair have their headquarters below the venue inside the Enel building. Sit outside and enjoy dishes from chef Elio Sironi while taking advantage of the financial district’s stunning skyline views.
