The antique COVA Patisserie was first founded in Milan in 1817 on the corner of the famous Piazza della Scala. With a rich heritage of almost two centuries, COVA has a distinct; inimitable image and identity that surpassed the test of time.
The tantalizing aromas of COVA’s pastries; confectioneries & cappuccino filled the air, tempted European Royal Families and aristocrats to gather at COVA Caffè before and after the opera to sample their sumptuous delights. Since then, COVA has always been the place to leisure; to see and be seen; relax and meet with friends & acquaintances. The interior of COVA is a vision of elegance, luxury, combined with a unique atmosphere that stimulates conversation and activity.
As the city of Milan recovered and began restoration after the war, so did COVA. In the 1940’s, COVA relocated to the renowned “Via Montenapolene” and the savory aromas of fresh pastries once again filled the air. Presently, Via Montenapoleone is the most fashionable street in Milan, lined with stores that carry only the most exclusive designer labels. And the name “COVA” is still a prestigious brand name that is synonymous with superb pastries and confectioneries throughout the years.
