Milan. Colonne di San Lorenzo. A Saturday afternoon walk and a sudden craving for dessert… That’s how we discovered Mascherpa, small but refined refuge for the tiramisu and coffee lovers, a perfect mix of energy and delicacy. With a single window over via de Amicis, this small patisserie has already drawn the attention of small and big patrons looking for genuine products that are good both to the palate and the eye.
The secret of Mascherpa’s success is tiramisu, the king of Italian desserts, for the making of which the mascarpone (you now get the place’s name, do you?) is accurately selected for its freshness and accompanied by always different flavors, chosen based on the season and the pastry chef’s creativity. Instead of the classic version, you can taste the pistachio tiramisu, the one with cinnamon, the one with cocoa, with exotic fruits or in the vegan version, like the green matcha tea-flavored one. The traditional savoiardi can be substituted too, opting, for instance, for friable chocolate biscuits with strawberries and soft fruits, a small wrong doing to traditional patisserie that will surely be forgiven after the first taste!
Mascherpa’s tiramisu comes in three sizes (small, medium and large) to be consumed right on the spot, on pastel-colored tables, or you can have a take-away one and eat it while you walk with the handy, little disposable spoons. You also can’t miss the tiramisu-filled pralines and little chocolates that come in most original shapes. The best companion to the house’s specialty is, undoubtedly the coffee, roasted in Italy, served in a brewed version to best exalt its toasted flavor and aroma.
The kindness and pleasantness of the staff that will welcome you when you’ll peek beyond the window it’s just another strength of this unusual patisserie, where you can also reserve a whole tiramisu for every occasion. If you’re in the area or just have an irresistible craving for tiramisu you don’t have excuses: Mascherpa is waiting for you every day to treat you to its tasty proposals!
