Nice bar/restaurant, local cooking, very good. Just wandered in. Good local craft beer selection and reasonable prices. Stayed on for supper. Couldn’t eat it all. Great.

Awful. Very bad quality. The crepes were were already made and reheated in the microwave. Also there is an extra charge 2€ for the service without mentioning it.

We went for a quick bite in the afternoon and ordered some soup and pasta. The soup only had beans and the water they were boiled in, no vegetables. The pasta did have some pieces of vegetable and traces of (canned) salmon. It was basically...More

We stopped in for an aperitif before dinner around the corner. We enjoyed a warm welcome and great drinks, what more could we ask. We plan to return to try the food next time.

Congratulations to management on losing two potential customers. We came to this cafe for the first time tonight to study and order crepes and brought a bottle of water with us. We were ready to order when a man came over and told us sternly...More

Although the place is born as a coffee bar, we had a very good lunch there. Excellent tagliata and antipasto di salumi e formaggi.

We were craving the normal Nutella crepe in a place where we can actually set & enjoy since we came to Italy. Found here, tasty Nutella & fruits crepe. Very friendly, welcoming, fast & tentative service. Would definitely come again.

Appealing from the outside but not so great here for us, we came in for late night drinks and crepes, service was very very slow, friendly but too slow. Crepes were ok but not amazing. Wouldn't recommend nothing memorable about visiting here

Very bad food. Very high price (really 5 € for an orange juice in that so not fancy place???) I highly recommend not to go.

Randomly ran into this café and was impressed by the ambience and food. Wine were well-picked and the galette was delicious and nicely prepared. Great service and would love to visit again on my next visit to Milan.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
