PRADA’S LEGENDARY MILANESE BAKERY IS COMING TO LONDON

Posted on by Cameron Tewson

Pasticceria Marchesi is Milan’s most established bakery, being founded in 1824 and now owned by Prada. The bakery is famed for its beautiful, mint green interior, its sugary sweets and panettone and is pretty much a Milanese landmark. It’s where celebrities come to take breakfast, fashionistas hang out and anyone who’s anyone comes to get their patisserie essentials.

Pasticceria Marchesi has announced that they’ll be arriving in London in April in a new spot on Mount Street. Set to occupy 117 Mount Street, immediately opposite The Connaught and down the road from Berkeley Square, it’s the spot previously taken by much-missed Allen’s of Mayfair, purveyor of some of London’s best game and meat since 1830, which met its ultimate demise in 2015.

And what can we expect from a London-reboot of Pasticceria Marchesi? We’re guessing more of the same, it seems unlikely that Prada will want to mess with such a winning formula. Mint green, Wes Anderson style interiors (he actually designed Prada’s Fondazione Prada café), an espresso bar, favourites from the Milan shop’s menu and, of course, lots and lots of panettone.

Marchesi will be opening in April (exact date TBC) at 117 Mount Street in Mayfair.
