Where is your favorite place to go for a quick bite or a little treat when you’re on the go? oTTo
What do you get there? Cappucino and the tart of the day, which is lovingly made in-house.
Why is it so good? The relaxed vibe, open plan, and collection of well-curated greenery make it an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Milan work-life. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is simple and delicious. Plus, they host weekly movie nights.
When is the best time to go? Mid-week, in the morning or early afternoon.
How did you find this place? It’s a bit hidden, on a side street off of Milan’s Chinatown strip. A trusted friend was generous enough to share it with me.
