I have recently fallen in love with a beautiful Italian café/ pastry & confectionery shop called COVA located at the IFC mall in
interior design is as delicate and intricate as its delicious delicacies and the
European atmosphere takes you back almost entirely to a different time. Shanghai
Not surprisingly, the café has an interesting history. It goes way back to 1817, when it first opened its doors in
at the Piazza della Scala. It is said that European Royalty and various
aristocrats would frequently gather at COVA café before and after an opera show
to indulge in the premium Italian confectioneries and yummy delights which
include their famous chocolates (made with natural cocoa butter) and fruit
jellies. All of the café’s chocolates and fruit jellies are air-flown directly
from COVA Milan to Milan .
The café also has a large selection of cakes, an assortment of pastries and amazing coffee.
