Bar Luce, Milano

The Wes Cafe

You might have noticed that I'm a bit partial to all things Wes Anderson around here so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that he'd designed a cafe in Milano in the Fondazione Prada. Having walked past it three times without noticing it, the fourth time drew me in when I noticed a woman holding a paper shopping bag with the words 'Bar Luce' beautifully written on its side.  

Nico 'These days' began playing in my head.  I stepped inside. It was overwhelmingly beautiful, here is what I saw......

The waiters fit in perfectly with their white shirts and black bow ties, they always carry something delishisly Wes Anderson
