The cafe looks really cozy and serves as a great rest stop while we wait for the train from Varenna-Esino to Milano Centrale. The food at the display counter looks fresh and appetizing, while the restroom is very clean.

Got some water from here while waiting for our train back from Varenna-Esino station to Milan Central. Located directly on the station it province a good level of convenience for train users.
