There’s always something going on in Milan – whether it’s Milan Design Week, Piano City, or yet another fashion week. These events, especially the upcoming MDW, are exhilarating and inspiring… and at some point, exhausting!
Take a moment to unwind and enrich your time in Milan with a nice lunch, walk, or shopping spree at some of these design-centric staples of the city.
1 / Berbere Pizzeria
With restaurants in Bologna, Castel Maggiore, Florence and Turin, Salvatore and Matteo Aloe Berbere is known from their revolutionary pizza. Instead of using fresh yeast like that which is used in traditional Neapolitan-style pizza, Berberè uses living sourdough, which is far trickier to work with but transforms the texture of the pizza from soft and chewy, to crisp and crunchy
2 / Cafe Gorille
This gem is ideal for a weekend brunch or delicious lunch. The friendly service will make you feel right at home while your munch or browse the Book Crossing corner.
3 / Macha Café
An innovative restaurant suitable for any time of day where everything is made with Macha. For the uninitiated, macha is a special Japanese green tea with many beneficial properties for the body. Macha Café is the first restaurant in Milan that has devised an innovative and healthy menu around this ingredient.

10 / Pave Gelati
The best way to refresh the Milanese summer is with a gelatto. The flavours of Pavé’s ice creams and granitas are inspired by the recipes of the pastries that have made him famous throughout Italy.
