Enjoying a nice breakfast outside, before going to work or more relaxed one during the weekend, is one of the small pleasures of life that deserves to be lived in a welcoming place, with personality but above all capable of offering quality products, good and maybe even beautiful. The place to find all of this, is Babouche.
The name of the restaurant is French and literally means “slipper”. The message is obvious: make yourself comfortable, here you are at home. Named in this original way precisely because, owner Martina Besana was born in a recently built building (in Via Maestri Campionesi in Milan) and wanted convey that sense of comfort and welcome that only a well-appointed house can give.
But what does Babouche have to offer over other pastry shops? A wide variety of traditional French croissants stuffed with traditional cream or chocolate and pistachio, with jam or ricotta, strictly handmade by their pastry chef. For more tasty snacks or breaks, the restaurant offers a selection of desserts, cakes, pralines and pastries that are a real treat for the eyes, a joy for the sense of smell and awe for the palate. What about a lunch break? Salads with fresh raw salmon, quiche, croque or salted brioche help you break the day with taste but without overdoing it.
Babouche is not satisfied by only pampering its customers with breakfasts, snacks and lunches. During aperitif time they offer seasonal cocktails accompanied by PDO cold cuts, stuffed milk sandwiches, oversized black Apulian olives and much more.
Those who have been pleasantly surprised by Babouche’s cuisine can also request a personalized catering service for each special event and above all to make a great figure.
To finally convince the skeptics (or the dieters) of all this delicious pastry-bistro has to offer, there is an extra surprise that makes it nothing short of unique: Babouche is open until 09:00 pm just to satisfy your desires after dinner if you want to try something delicious.
A very famous English writer and poet said: “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to give in,” so make yourself comfortable with Babouche and … give in!
