One hundred and eighty six

Pasticceria Marchesi was established in 1824.  To put that in perspective just 54 years earlier Captain Cook charted the east coast of Australia. I don't know if the display cases are original but I assume they are - such beautiful detail that stands the test of time (in fact I'm assuming most things about this place have been there for 186 years - this is sustainable design at its very best - naturally the "5 year lease and refit clause" scenario doesn't apply here!). Marchesi is an elegant Milanese location with a bustling counter where the beautiful people dash in for their morning cappucci ... and the pastries are as fresh as a daisy.
