Picnics in the park: for 40 euro (it's not really cheap, right?), you can get a picnic basket for 2 people with everything you need: blanket, cushions, juice, coffee, 2 bagels, 2 fruit salads, and 2 slices of cake, muffins or brownies.

They've been growing a lot lately, after the exisiting Viale Premuda, Largo Augusto and Piazza Sant'Eustorgio, they opened the Via Larga branch and the brand new Via Tortona one during Design Week. And they are also planing to open new stores in other cities like Bergamo, Como, Varese, etc.
There's one thing I've never liked about CB, their brunch. I know brunch was invented in the US and it consists of a plate of eggs, pancakes, coffee, fruit and juice (and a mimosa or bloody mary) but after having eaten brunch around Milan, with all the rich buffets and the all you can eat formula, this CB brunch didn't seem as great as the others.
Yes, the prices are high, but where else in Milan can you get bagels, NY cheesecake and a mug of american coffee?
You can find California Bakery in many locations all over Milan, visit their website to find out about openings and events: http://www.californiabakery.it/
