Milan: flowers and coffee at Fioraio Bianchi Caffè
Lost in the backdrop of colorful Brera, Fioraio Bianchi Caffè is set in a cute corner just before you leave north of this upscale design district. A rustic-chic cafe, filled with flower arrangements and greenery, Fioraio is where you can definitely find an Italian fare with a modern twist.
What once used to be a flower shop has now transformed into a coffee place and a meeting point for having that good ol' aperitivo just before dinner. Dinners are also fresh and inventive with particularly delicious border-crossing desserts, from Provencal lavender brûlée to a spice-inflected apple strudel. Otherwise, if you visit during the morning service make sure you try one of their freshly-made paninis and small sandwiches.
Man up the espresso order right by the bar, pick it up and find yourself a cosy little corner to indulge in it. Perfect place for a quick stop with a great service that goes like clockwork!
