The cakes & pastries beckoning from the counter of this Milanese-branded bakery suggest downturn-defying abundance, amplified by the sight of prosperous-looking Italian men chucking down coffee & pastries. Come for breakfast (they’ve recently started doing eggs & Tuscan sausages) or elevenses, when all is calm as office workers trickle in to buy mozzarella & ham sandwiches on foccaccia. It’s a ‘perfect place for lunch’, too, with hot dishes such as lasagne or aubergine parmigiana, seating at communal, copper-topped tables & stand-ups by the long counter. Princi has also added early-evening aperitivi to its armoury, with snacks gratis when you order an Aperol spritz or a glass of Vermentino. If you only buy one thing at this ‘try-all venue’, make it a portion of cannoncini – an almondy, custardy twist of puff pastry.
