The coffee  Bar : “De Amicis”

Caffè De Amicis is Situated near the university La Cattolica and the basilic San’t Ambrogio; just at the exit ot the metro San’t Ambrogio; this coffee bar is ideal for a break or for lunch.
Italian people from all ages go there to have a cup of coffee while reading a newspaper; which you can borrow at the coffee bar.
You will see students meeting for a drink; working people eating during their lunch break and the old habitués who just came for a coffee or to chat with the barman. It is not a place to stay all the afternoon though; you just eat or drink and go.

For lunch; there are lots of different paninis that you can eat at a table or take away; they all cost around 4 euro; which is the price in the city.
Then you have a choice of “primo”; often pasta and salads ; and “secondo”: meat with vegetables or fish or vegetarian dish. I like it because of the good rapport quality/price. The “secondo” (main dishes) costs at maximum 8 euros.  You can choose your meal directly in the window display, where they show you all the dishes of the day. I’m pretty sure they are all homemade and it is fresh food.
If you go there for a coffee, try the “cappuccino al caramello”, cappuccino flavored with toffee.

There is a wifi connection so you can check some infos on your computer if you brought it.

Clarisse- I’m a 23 year-old Parisian who studies in a Business School in France. After a semester in Milan as an exchange student, I decided to work there because I loved living there. I now know Milan very well, as I love just wandering in the streets and discovering new things. It is a very dynamic city and there are a lot of places which deserved to be seen. That’s why I wanted to share my experience with you. Also because I love traveling and when I’m in a city abroad I always wonder where would go the locals. So I'll try and advise you the bests spots to be ! What else you might want to know about me? Well, I love fashion and I’m quite gourmet so I’ll recommend you fine restaurants and bars to do the famous aperitivo and to eat the Italian specialties. As I like doing lots of different activities, I try and be informed about what's new so I'll do my best to keep you updated. 😉 Hope you'll find everything you need and have fun!
