The pink color and the bohemean style of the interior makes this bakery even more welcoming. Inside the bar there is a retro garden that offers a lovely escape from the Milanese rush. So much more than just a pastry shop 😉.

The space is very nice and informal with a bit retrò atmosphere: grandma’s armchairs and wooden tables occupy the ground floor. Thanks to the open workspace you can osserve how their greatest desserts come to life.
