Café Giacomo Palazzo Reale

Milan
Anhelo
The Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) of Milan is an important art museum specializing mainly in  modern and contemporary art, in the Piazza del Duomo. When we visited, the Museum was bustling with visitors attracted by two major simultaneous exhibitions, one dedicated to Van Gogh and the other to Chagal.
The Museum’s Café is a place to recharge before or after visiting, or simply for having a snack and a good coffee in an art-laden atmosphere. It’s got the feel of a literary café, where the ground floor is a salon with high ceiling, bistro furniture and and a mirror of almost royal proportions behind the bar.

In contrast, the upstairs room is a lower ceiling, quiet space, that’s decorated and set up as a reading room which provides a wonderful break from the noisy flow of tourist crowds.

The visitor crowd of the museum were clearly enjoying themselves in the salon and the terrace in the interior courtyard of the Palazzo. In proper Milanese style, the staff were handling the many requests of a busy time professionally and friendly.

As in the Giacomo restaurant bar at the Museo del Novecento, the coffee at the Palazzo Realo comes from Anhelo in Naples. This café was awarded a 1 out 3 "coffee beans" score by Gambero Rosso - we felt that its lovely atmosphere and very good espresso deserved the mention there.
