The Bar Magenta
Situated near the metro station Cadorna and the basilic San’t ambrogio; the Bar Magenta is a great place to stop at every moment of the day: the morning to grab a cup of coffee; at lunch to eat a panini or a main dish; during the afternoon to drink something or in the evening for an aperitivo. I would not recommend the aperitivo though since it is not the best one in town: you can not even take the food yourself which is usually the concept of the buffet!
However, the panini are good and the dishes too. The panini are a little expensive : 5/6 euros but well furnished and fresh made! The dishes cost around 8 euros. Pay attention that you will have to pay a service to the table. So for example if you order your meal; they make you pay and then you want a coffee; you will pay the coffee+ 50 cents of service!
During your break, you can enjoy free wi-fi and/or watch TV.
The bar Magenta is quite big so there are always some tables available. It is also possible to seat outside. During the evening there is some music playing; the mood is cosy. You won’t go there to party but to enjoy a drink with your friends.
On Monday night, there is an animation by a young guy ( actually a friend of mine!): Dr Why, I let you be surprised…
On Thursday night, there is always “musica al vivo” (music on live) from 23.00 to 1/2 o’clock. It is very nice!
