Pandenus is a coffee-bakery, a cozy spot with small tables, dark colors and ethnic style decorations. It has 2 locations, one in C.so Concordia 11 (with some tables outside) and one in a side way of Corso Buenos Aires (Via Tadino 15), the main shopping street of Milan whose bars are unfortunately quite depressing with their cheap interior and expensive dishes.
I like to go to Pandenus for a coffee or a quick lunch, especially if I feel like having something healthy or vegetarian, but my favorite is the aperitivo. There aren’t many tables so you have to arrive quite early, towards 18:00, or you won’t be able to get in.
I usually go to the seat near Corso Buenos Aires on my cinema nights (there is the Arcobaleno just around the corner, with English movies on Monday), I order a glass of wine and head to the buffet: a variety of breads and pizzas, bruschette, meatballs, fresh and cooked vegetables are displayed together with fruit and vegetables bunches. The quality of the ingredients is really high, but you might feel that waiters and queuing clients are putting some pressure on you to leave your table as soon as you have finished your drink.
