In the trendy Isola district in Milan there is a bar that you absolutely must try. It’s called Aroma Napoletano Milano and every day it bakes large and colorful Ischian croissants. In fact, it cannot be said that the place is not instagrammable. You can also order giant 1 kg XXL croissants to celebrate a birthday or other special event.
The Ischia croissant is a mix between croissant and brioche dough; its double dough makes it tastier than the classic croissant.
At Aroma Napoletano 100% Arabica Neapolitan coffee is served to accompany the various baked croissants: pistachio with white chocolate, pistachio, pure white chocolate and red fruit purée, charcoal with lemon cream and meringue, Nutella, ruby chocolate rose, caramel and many others.
We recommend it for an outdoor breakfast, to start the day right. In the bar there are also other Neapolitan pastry specialties: donuts, staples and the legendary Neapolitan pastiera.
This cafe is totally worth a visit.
Expect giant croissants like you’ve never seen before.
Probably the best croissants in Milan.
The staff are amazing and friendly and be sure to order the coffee as well it’s incredible.
NB there is no indoor seating and expect long lines
