In 1930, two pastry chefs came together with the goal of providing Milan with delicious homemade treats. Eighty-five years later, people are still lining up to taste them. G. Cova & C. prides itself on keeping alive the very recipes that made them famous all those years ago – and the Milanese are extremely grateful.
This establishment is most known for its panettone, the famous winter-time sweet bread that you either love or hate. If you love it, have it by the slice or take home an entire loaf in a nicely wrapped package.
But if you’re among those who can’t stand this Italian version of fruitcake, don’t worry. G. Cova & C. has plenty more on offer.
If brightly colored, beautifully crafted pastries are more up your alley, you’re in luck.
But don’t waste any time – the sweet treats, particularly the tiramisu, sell out quickly.
If you prefer savory over sweet, they’ve got you covered. Choose from a selection of meat and cheese plates which are perfectly paired with the delicious house red wine.
If you’re watching your waistline, pop in for a coffee…but we can’t promise you’ll be able to resist the goodies on the menu.
Whether you go to G. Cova & C. for a sandwich or a slice of cake, just make sure you go – because how many cafés can say their ceiling is lined with loaves of bread?
