The Crane Hotel

I’ve been suffering from this grey, cold January weather this year, so I’ve been looking around for short escape out of London.

10 Best Cafes/Restaurants in Milan

Next week the Milan Design Week kicks off (also called il ‘Salone del Mobile’), I’ll be spending just a couple of days there and I can’t wait for it.

Milan is showing off the best of itself during the week and all the showrooms and art galleries open their doors to design events and installations.  In this city furniture is almost as important as food, so don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice meal. Here’s my top 10 list of cafes and restaurants around the city.

1/ 10 CORSO COMO

This cafe’ is hidden inside a traditional Mialense Courtyard, once you crossed the door from the busy/party Corso Como road you’ll find yourself transported into this amazing space: it’s a cafe, a fashion shop and also an art gallery and bookshop at the first floor. It’s definitely one of my favourite places in Milan, I have to say, I never try the food, but I had coffee and drinks few times and  I’ve never been disappointed!
