A new original bar was inaugurated last month in Milan. The Café puts together the style of literary café with the taste of Italian espresso.
On July 23, Milano inaugurated the first Italian Moleskine bar. A literary café in the heart of the Brera neighborhood offers premium quality espresso coffee in an old-fashioned atmosphere updated by minimalist design and an original, modern menu. The coffee bar combines the age-old atmosphere of literary cafés with that of more contemporary northern European coffee locales, meant to be gathering places for relaxing, chatting, using a laptop, or attending a talk while sipping coffee and enjoying a snack. More and more coffee bars in Italy and around Europe are adopting this format. Moleskine Café in Milano has joined with Sevengrams coffee roasters to offer a selection of artisanal products and single-origin coffees. After opening the first Moleskin Café at the Geneva airport, described as a “contemporary alternative to Starbucks”, the notebook giant is now launching in Milano with a worthy partner. The food menu includes breakfast pastries as well as sandwiches, soups and other quick lunch dishes. On a lower floor, a sales corner with a boutique display shows off the latest Moleskine products ranging from notebooks to pens, from briefcases to a wide selection of paper goods. For its ingredients the Moleskine Café kitchen looks to local providers, seeking, wherever possible, to use zero-kilometer products.
