Built on two floors, right next to the Duomo of Milano, our Caffè di Palazzo Reale is one of the most famous museum-cafés in the world. A sober and elegant atmosphere conveying the concept that food is an art.

The attention to details, which characterizes the Giacomo group, is fully reflected in this literary cafe with an international flavour, halfway between a French bistro and a Viennese cafe but with the plus of friendly Made in Italy service. The ground floor is a retro-style room with large mirrors and a chandelier from the early 1900s, on the top floor you can relax sitting on upholstered armchairs, browsing the catalogues of the exhibitions of Palazzo Reale and sipping one of the tasty teas of our prestigious selection.

A truly unique place to relax after having visited the Museum, or after a sightseeing day tour or simply after a business meeting downtown. Occasions are countless at any time of the day as we are right in the center of the beating heart of the Milanese capital!

Every morning you can come for breakfast and taste just-baked croissants and Giacomo’s signatures pastries. At noon, you can savor a quick lunch with sandwiches, salads and other cold dishes or also traditional Italian meals. In the afternoon, don’t’ miss our happy hour aperitif in the delightful dehors, facing one of the most beautiful historic courtyards of Milan.

Whatever the reason that will take you to Giacomo Caffè – maybe just a reading break –  you will find yourself in a location that will give you a feeling of peace. If you fancy feeling like Hemingway attending La Closerie des Lilas, bring a notebook and a pen, this is the place to get inspired! A literary cafe that is the perfect place for culture lovers to have quality time. Also, a prefect place for private events.
