Milan’s finest Sunday brunches have become as much as a ritual as the city’s famous ‘happy hour’ aperitivo, and at their best, they combine superb savoury and sweet Italian with international favourites such as eggs benedict, often prepared to order. A lot of the city’s favourite aperitivo venues also do Sunday brunch, but the three we have chosen below offer an extra special experience. It’s always worth booking in advance and finding out the times: generally from about midday to four o’clock, but it varies.
This Sunday brunch has become famous in the city, in part for the lovely location, one of the rare hotel gardens in the city. There are tables inside or amongst the trees, and it’s very pleasant to just relax with a good cup of coffee after having enjoyed the delicious menu specialities. www.hclub-diana.it
