Pasticceria Marchesi, one of Milan’s most iconic cafes, was founded almost 200 years ago in the same location in which it continues to operate today. It is a story of classicism guided by creativity.
The roots of Pasticceria Marchesi begin in 1824 when a small pastry shop opened inside an elegant 18th century building in a discreet, upscale neighborhood in Milan. The shop quietly went about its business of confections until the early 1900s when Angelo Marchesi expanded its services to a bar serving coffee, refreshments and early evening cocktails in addition to its freshly baked pastries, cakes, cookies and candies.
Today, the same café in Via Santa Maria alla Porta, 11/a is managed by Angelo Marchesi’s grandson (also named Angelo) together with his wife and two children. The family runs the business according to the café’s original principles, retaining its unique heritage. It continues to be an esteemed destination for Milan’s tastemakers who come to swirl espresso at the antique bar or pick up special sweets for an important event or gift.
