Here are some of Milan’s best tips from a local you might find useful:


I bet you are hungry just by reading this post. Keep reading further, these are the 5 greatest brunch spots to try in Milan.

1. Ofelé. Coffee & Cuddles

Ofelé, Coffee & Cuddles is the place to go when a desire for sweet or savoury brunch kicks in. Hidden at a cosy spot at the beginning of Via Savona, Ofelé is particularly famous for its pancake breakfasts. I am eager to try the ones with maple syrup!

In Ofelé’s words, they are a bakery and bistro with a cosy atmosphere that resembles a grandma’s home, a place where everyone feels at ease. As the inside place is quite small, you might either need to wait for a bit or you can book a spot in advance. Children and four-legged furry friends are welcome! 

Ofelé also encourages smart working so you are welcome to come work at Ofelé while enjoying a good cup of coffee and some delicious snacks. It’s best to give them a call to book in advance though.

2. Hygge

The word “Hygge” (originally Danish) is a well-known concept in the northern countries. Hygge means to take time away from the daily rush to enjoy time with people you care about (friends or family or even alone) to relax and enjoy life’s quieter pleasures.

And Hygge, a fully specialized brunch restaurant between Colonne di San Lorenzo and St. Ambroggio does just this. It takes on the concept of Hygge and incorporates it into their daily work. Hygge is the place to go if you desire brunch in a cosy cafe with a relaxing and international atmosphere.

Brunch at Hygge is served on Saturdays and Sundays, between 10 am and 3.30 pm. Brunch is available only on reservations, so you need to book in advance to guarantee your brunch spot.

3. BGood

BGood is originally a bar with healthy and vegan options, but they do a pretty good brunch too! You will find BGood in the area between the Naviglio Pavese Canal and Bocconi University. During the warmer days, you can sit in BGood’s outside area on a cool green street.

BGood is all about a healthy lifestyle. They offer specialty coffee, poke bowls, salads, and healthy vegan places. As for their brunch, you have the coolest option of creating your brunch and add the dishes below:

  • filter coffee / capuccino
  • freshly squeezed orange juice
  • toast (avocado toast/eggs and salmon toast)
  • two side dishes
  • dessert

The cost for brunch is 18 euros per person.

4. Mugs & Co. Cozy Cafe and Bakery

Mugs & Co. Cozy Cafe and Bakery is a brunch restaurant on a non-busy street just south of Corso XXII Marzo. In comparison to other brunch places in Milan in this blog post, Mugs & Co. Offers brunches every day and not just on weekends! Ideal place to visit if you desire a delicious brunch on a weekday.

Their All Week Brunch is available from Monday to Saturday, 8.30 am to 12.30 pm with 7 different menus, ranging from scrambled eggs to English breakfast, pancakes, and veggie options. 

There is a special Sunday Brunch offer on Sundays! For 24eur per person, you get a main dish and an avocado toast of choice, together with a dessert of choice and a drink – fresh apple juice or orange juice, espresso, americano, or cappuccino. You can add a tasty alcoholic drink for only 5-6eur. Sunday brunches at Mugs & Co need to be booked in advance.

5. Cocotte

Cocotte is a concept bistro with indoor and outdoor space, hidden in a small street behind Piazza Cinque Giornate. It is by now easily reachable by the blue metro line – read more about Milan public transport here.

Cocotte serves brunch every Saturday and Sunday, between 10 am and 4 pm for only 20eur per person. They offer several sweet or savoury brunch menus, like Eggs Benedict or pancakes with maple syrup. No matter which menu you choose, Cocotte will freely offer you orange or grapefruit juice, a coffee, a delicious cake and a glass of sparkling to go with it!
