In a withdrawn, discreet and bohémien area between Porta Venezia and Città Studi there’s a bar which has opened more than thirty years ago that holds high the banner of patisserie tradition, a small gem that is also a point of reference for all of the inhabitants of the neighborhood: the Bar Pasticceria S.Liviana. As you step in you will be greeted by an intimate and authentic atmosphere, which surely is the added value besides the incredibly wide offer of artisanal products.
The Bar Liviana is a hangout place very far from the urban bar concept where you consume fast with limited time and rush; it is conceived as a moment of intersection between work and house, school and after-school, sunday breakfast and lunch at your grandparent’s house, that moment when you take a deep breath and enjoy life. A real gathering place, like those you find in province, when you don’t even need to read the paper but talking to the barman is sufficient to know what happens in the world around us. Liviana, along with her family, will welcome you like you’re in her own home.
From breakfast to happy hour, in here you can forget about the clock. If you enter for a coffee you’ll stay until Spritz time without even realizing it. Between the bar counter and the patisserie counter you’ll want to taste everything everytime: fresh brioches, cakes, tarts, mignon pastries, meringues and profiteroles. If during the happy hour you’ll feel the call of the salty snacks, puff pastry-pizzas or the rustici with ham and cheese or anchovies, for a classic Milanese happy-hour to go along with a nice prosecco.
In its simplicity this place preserves an old-time beauty, maintaining a great quality-price ratio. Treat of the treats: it’s just wonderful to relax in the little dehor, a real hidden garden, that is only partially visible from the street, behind the corner of via privata Pelagio Pelagi, to enjoy your break in peace.
