1. Cracco Coffee Design
Nothing says style like Cracco Coffee Design. All-star chef Carlo Craccoâ€™s latest Milan offering is this pearly, elegant cafÃ©, which took the place of the old Triennale CafÃ© in 2008.
The white, avant-garde, minimalist space created by designer Michele de Lucchi is ideal for people watching. Large windows allow views of the outside as well as of the chefs as they prepare a host of small, gourmet dishes characteristic of Cracco, along with some of Milanâ€™s top brews.
2. Miani CaffÃ¨ (Zucca)
Located in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, amongst the hautest of the haute couture shopping in Milan, this cafÃ© is a must for fashion minded coffee-lovers.
Two floors, each with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bustling thoroughfare of the Galleria, beneath its shimmering domed roof, allows for plenty of fashion-watching, while the coffees and snacks might be good enough to distract even the most fashion-forward.
3. Sant Ambroeus
Sant Ambroeus, a cafÃ©, bar, restaurant, and patisserie, has long been a pillar of Milanâ€™s coffee and bakery culture. And for good reason.
Stunning Belle-Ã‰poque style envelopes you as you enter, as sugary-sweet as the frosting on the delectable sweets. A haunt of VIPs and haute-couture giants, the people-watching inside is as good as watching the street outside.
4. Bianco Latte
If you want a truly indulgent coffee, thereâ€™s nothing like Bianco Latte. The rich, creamy coffees are to die for, as are the many snacks and sweets typical of a classic Italian pasticceria.
Clean, simple style and the always-helpful staff assure that nothing comes between you and your heavenly beverage.
Take a birds-eye-view of the Milan streets from the Armani/Lounge. Minimalist elegance and pared-down contemporary style meets utter comfort in this fashionable hideaway at the top of the Armani Hotel Milan.
Skyline-views of Milan pour through the floor-to-ceiling windows while you delight in a delicious coffee or a perfect pre-dinner aperitivo.
