Bakeries You Can’t Miss in Milan

Gourmet bread by Egalité bakery

Don’t call them bread shops! Milan’s new bakeries are inspired by British and Northern European models and have rediscovered the use of wholemeal flours, ancient grains and traditional bread making techniques.

A map of these venues follows

Crosta

You can breakfast on freshly-baked cakes and pastries in the morning, purchase bread and sample pizza on the peel at lunch and throughout the day, while at dinner, there’s pan pizza.

Egalité is a bakery and a patisserie, serving breakfast (including baguettes with butter and jam, croissants, pain au chocolat and aux raisin), lunch and aperitivi.
