Where is your favorite place to go for a quick bite or a little snack when you’re on the go? Gelato? Piadineria? Mercato?
The place where I like to snack when I come back to Milan is the California Bakery in Corso Como. I also like to stop in Eataly for a quick lunch with a piadina romagnola.
What do you get there?
During the afternoon, I usually choose a nice slice of red berry cake with whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and a carrot, apple and ginger centrifuge. At lunch I like to eat a piadina. I love raw ham with cheese, tomatoes and tartar sauce.
Why is it so good?
It’s one of those places where you feel always at home. What is more, I love to look at those counters full of desserts.
When is the best time to go?
I usually go there around 16:30/17:00 but also around 19:00 after the gym when I want to treat myself with a special something.
How did you find this place?
When I got back to Milan after having been in London, a model friend invited me there for an American coffee. From that day on, I never stopped going.
