Pasticceria Marchesi

Top choice pastries in Corso Magenta & Sant'Ambrogio

This wood-panelled pasticceria (pastry shop) has been baking since 1824 and turns out 10 different types of brioche alongside bignes (cream puffs), millefeuilles, pralines and more. The window displays have the feel of a Hitchcock dream sequence but, with perfect-every-shot coffee, there’s no shock ending. Don’t overlook the fruit gels packaged together in contrasting flavours like green apple and prune.
