After an intensive shopping session, stopping for a snack is an absolute must. Whether you’re in search of a relaxing lunch break or merely need to recharge your batteries with something sweet, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you wish to prolong your multi-sensorial experience in the vintage universe, the Fioraio Bianchi bistro in via Montebello 7, located in the heart of the vibrant Brera district, will satisfy your every need.

Aromando Bistrot

Here, in an atmosphere where time seems to have stood still, you can sample traditional dishes surrounded by stunning flower arrangements, wrought iron furniture and wooden chairs, whose design conjures up a truly retro feel. If, on the other hand, you’re feeling nostalgic, head to via Moscati where, at number 13, you will find the Aromando Bistrot featuring a Fifties-style décor. Its charming interior is decorated with old wardrobes, gramophones and other memorabilia that summon the spirit of days gone by, transporting you back into history to a day spent dining with your grandparents.
The Boydem

A little further on, just a few steps from the Duomo, the aroma of spices wafting out of The Boidem, in via Santa Marta 3, tempts diners into its delectable atmosphere, making it almost impossible not to linger there. In the cosy space of this picturesque Israeli restaurant, you can titillate your palate with traditional Middle Eastern delicacies, served on Art Nouveau-style platters, while sitting on chairs purchased from antique markets.
