I recently had a weekend in Milan, and it was quite easy to eat keto. The difficult thing is just avoiding the ice cream and the pizzas, but it’s plenty of restaurants with low-carb and keto options.
Keto breakfast in Milan
In Italy people are consuming a sweet breakfast: usually, coffee with jam or chocolate croissant, cookies, or a slice of pie. That is why is difficult finding a bar serving an English breakfast.
Eggs and bacon are not a typical Italian breakfast. My suggestion to have an English breakfast is to search for a hotel or accommodation that serves this option.
If you just want to grab a quick coffee for breakfast, I suggest Starbucks. In Italy, they don’t really know what is heavy cream (they think is whipped cream, the one with sugar on it!).
My suggestion is just to stick to black coffee, cold or hot, and have a splash of low-carb milk (almond, the best available in Starbucks).
In Milan, I suggest the Starbucks Roastery.

Keto options at the supermarkets in Milan
If you need a quick snack, or just consume a meal in your hotel watching `netflix because it’s freaking warm, just walk into one of the many supermarkets and grab a keto snack. You won’t find any keto bars, candy, or cereals in Italian stores. So, conventional keto it is.
Here are my favorite options:
- Salads with proteins
- Cheese blocks
- Sugar-free drinks
