Pasticceria Marchesi, one of the oldest pastry shops in Milan, was among our best finds while in Italy. Each morning, Mike and I elbowed our way up to the small, packed espresso bar.
I loved starting the day with a smooth cappuccino, while Mike preferred a strong café. But we both thoroughly enjoyed the flaky, buttery cornettos, brushed with a barely sweet glaze.
The interior of the shop is a dream for any lover of sweets. Old-fashioned shelves house jars and jars of candy, while dark wood display cases encase hundreds of perfectly prepared pastries.
Outside the shop, the display windows are equally as beautiful. The treats are showcased for only one day, as each morning we returned to fresh pastries and new window designs.
So, if you find yourself in Milan, be sure to stop by Pasticceria Marchesi for a sweet start to your day.
