I love museums cafes, the nice ones where you go there just for take a coffee or eat something. This is another way for art structures to attract people: maybe they’ll start with a coffee and then they’ll visit exhibitions or the museum collection!

Lunch at Victoria & Albert Museum in London is one of my favorite ritual. You walk through the museum halls (for free!) with sculptures and artworks just to have a coffee.

Something is happening in Milan too, after the Hangar Bicocca café and the Mudec bistrot, here it comes the new GAM café, right next to the Giardini Pubblici of Porta Venezia.

The Modern Art Gallery is a real treasure in the city, they have an awesome collection from 19th and 20th century. The entrance fee is 5 € (3 €) but it’s free everyday for the last opening our and every Tuesday from 2 p.m. The location is amazing: the museum is located in the Villa Belgiojoso, built in 18th century. Don’t miss it!

And after some food for the spirit is time for some real food and you can reward yourself with great Sicilian food at the LùBar café.
The cafeteria is located in the southern porch of Villa Reale, where once there were carriages today there is a wonderful winter garden full of plants and Parisian atmosphere.lubar-caffetteria-gam-milano-6 lubar-caffetteria-gam-milano-7

Lucilla, Lucrezia and Ludovico Bonaccorsi were looking for a place for their Sicilian street food.
Their adventure started in 2013 on the beach of the Vendicari oasis in Noto (Syracuse), then they went around Italy with an Ape car exporting Sicilian street food. Now they are in Milan and flamingos in their logo are those you can find in the Vendicari oasis!

Interior is designed by Lucrezia, she is architect and set designer: tables, chairs and vases come from Morocco, while the counter piano from Berlin but do not be fooled by the appearance: it is not made in precious stone but it’s recycled plastic!
There is also a kids space with mini Kartell chairs!
If the pastel colors and blue eyes of the three brothers remind you of something I help you, their mother is the fashiondesigner Luisa Beccaria 😉 (I loooooove her!)

What can you eat there? Typical Sicilian products such as cannoli, granite, panelle, arancini and very good bowl that they called ‘scudedde’!
