Delectable and delicious, sugar-sweet perfection: Prada’s Pasticceria Marchesi has just opened its doors in Mount Street and we’re in love. Everything from polished marble floors to green velvet chairs is film-set beautiful and transports you straight to Milan.
There are little boxes of sugared almonds and dragées tied up with bows, puffy cream-filled pastries, glossy cakes, Italian panettone, and of course proper coffee. For breakfast (until 11.30am) if you’re eating in order the bread with cream spreads – including homemade nutella, hazelnut and coffee (delicious) and pistachio, to take away we recommend the Bombolone – an irresistible Italian donut.
The surprise is that you can also order cocktails here; try the Marchesi – Bitter, vermouth Carpano Rosso, Dry Gin and Biancosarti.
