Pasticceria Marchesi

11A Via Santa Maria alla Porta
Milan , Italy http://www.pasticceriamarchesi.it/
39-02-862-770

Little seems to have changed in this coffee and cake shop on Via Santa Maria alla Porta since opening in 1824. Baristas still wear white shirts under black vests and bowties while dispensing pralines, éclairs, and 30 different types of cream cakes. There’s far more available too in the old-fashioned, dark wood display cases and jars of candy. Add in some truly old-school cappuccino and one of Milan’s most popular breakfasts is served. Around Christmas, Pasticceria Marchesi bakes one of the most sought after panettones in Italy.
