Tipografia Alimentare – Food hub

The Tipografia Alimentare was immediately successful as soon as it opened recently, and that’s due to a number or reasons: it is near the Naviglio della Martesana, a canal to the north of Milan that is loved by locals but unknown by tourists, since it is almost impossible to find a place to stop by and have a drink… at least until now; it has simple but really high quality dishes (providers are carefully selected), and it has a great quality/price ratio.

The location is quite unusual: it used to be a post office, and it still has a sort of rough, industrial look, with wooden tables, basic chairs and shelves on the wall, but this only adds a genuine touch to the place that really makes it different from the gentrified cafes of the city center.

I’ve gone to Tipografia Alimentare quite a few times by now, and it is always full of very different people: families with children, young couples, runners (the Naviglio della Martesana is ideal for this activity), bikers and locals of any age. I love the croissant and the cappuccino, but I suspect that the many local cheeses, hams and wines are worth a visit at aperitivo time.
