The focaccia is to die for. I could not stop eating eat. You buy it by the square, and they cut it up into smaller squares to eat. There's a variety of toppings, and plenty for vegetarians as well. Great bread, and delicious cakes and desserts. The coffee is Illy and delicious. Highly recommended

Long queues and the amount of people are nothing compared to the quality of food. I really don't mind waiting for my focaccia and desserts where the quality is so high. Still my favourite bakery in milan

Two years ago I visited this place by accident and fell in love with it. Calm atmosphere, buffet "aperitivo" after work, great drinks and excellent snacks. So this time around I had to find it again... and I was looking almost a whole hour for it with a friend. Finally we found it and then the disappointments started... 1. the... More

As well as great coffee and amazing range of freshly baked pastries and breads, Princi has a great breakfast menu with a range of reasonably priced choices. It was very busy when we went and it took a while to understand the coffee queue system, but it didn't take long to be served and the food was freshly prepared and... More

OMG, whenever I have a chocolate croissant anywhere in the world (including France), I compare it to the one I had here. These are the croissants you would get in heaven. I don't know if I was just lucky that day, but it was the most perfect croissant EVER... Crisp, buttery pastry with an abundance of thick warm chocolate...just thinking... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
