The list of pastries in Milan is quite long, let’s find out together the ones that offer the most tasty breakfast 😉
My selection of top places for Italian breakfast in Milan
Pasticceria Sissi: fresh croissants all full of cream and chocolate
If you have decided to treat yourself in a special way Sissi is the right place for you.
This hystorical bakery is very famous among locals for its delicious croissants stuffed at the moment with a huge amount of cream, jam and chocolate. Their croissants are a real culinary delicacy. Other specialties include pralineria, bignè, strudel, pastiere and cassatelle plus shortbread with fruits and cannoli filled at the moment.
The pink color and the bohemean style of the interior makes this bakery even more welcoming. Inside the bar there is a retro garden that offers a lovely escape from the Milanese rush. So much more than just a pastry shop 😉.
Address: Piazza Risorgimento, 6, 20129 Milano MI
Take a note: closed on Tuesday
Gelsomina: a corner of Sicily in Milan
This bakery brings the quiet atmosphere and scents of Southern Italy to the center of Milan. You’ll be spoiled for choice in Gelsomina!
The amount of croissants fillings is embarassing (their pistachio and Palermo blackberry jam are on my top list) and the other types of sweets are no less: maritozzi with whipped cream, sfogliatelle, sicilian brioche and cannoli, single serving cakes, italian tarts and almond pastes.
Vintage furniture and tableware alternate with succulents plants and Indian fig in a warm and cosy atmosphere.
The wrought iron creations and ceramic floor tiles take you in an instant to the historical places of Sicily. Besides the service is attentive and very friendly.
Address: Via Carlo Tenca 5, 20124 Milano Italia
Tiemi Pasticceria: a creative touch for a special breakfast
From the moment you walk through the door you can feel the scent of fresh pastries. An interesting detail of the interior is the glass on the floor that separates the ground floor from the pastry laboratory, here you can take a look on how sweets are prepared.
Tieimi is a modern bakery that offers a wide selection of homemade sweets: from special croissants prepared with different recipes, shapes and unique fillings (Madagascar vanilla and Crema al Tiramisù are must-try) to super delicious pastries and cakes (shortcrust cake with strawberry, exotic cake with mango mousse). Everything you find here goes perfectly with your morning cappuccino.

Pavè bakery: the perfect italian breakfast
Pavè is one of the most visited breakfast places among locals. It conquered the fame for its delicious and fragrant brioche stuffed with homemade jams. The choice is huge: brioche stuffed with apricot or raspberry jam, with vanilla or hazelnut cream, ginger and gianduia, delicious pain au chocolat, plumcake and brownies, single-portion cakes for gourmands, juices, centrifuges and the whole cafeteria.
The space is very nice and informal with a bit retrò atmosphere: grandma’s armchairs and wooden tables occupy the ground floor. Thanks to the open workspace you can osserve how their greatest desserts come to life.
Address: Via Felice Casati 27, 20124 Milano Italia
Sugar: delicious cakes in a setting milanese
This small and artisan pastry can boast of a laboratory of over 300 square feet that bake delicious pastries every morning.
The bakery offers a series of creamy or baked cakes, small pastry and 14 different types of brioches. A true paradise for breakfast lovers and also located on a very elegant street.
On sunny days, enjoy breakfast on the outdoor terrace in the shade of centuries-old trees.
