We booked tickets for a weekend in Milano (yay!) and now I would like to get recommendations from people who have already been to (some of) the many veg*an restaurants listed on happycow.
I want this weekend to be all killer, no filler!

art, shopping and exciting items at the local supermarket tips would be highly appreciated, too!

I had an amazing meal at Mudra. The owner is a vegan, and he was great to talk to. I had a really enjoyable russian salad, a broccoli whip with good bread for dipping, a "carpaccio" with seitan, some seriously delicious savory crepes and chocolate banana bread for the road. It was just the owner working, so it was a leisurely meal - but one of my favorite experiences in Milano.

The menu changes seasonally, and not everything was available. You will be fed well though, and it was a great afternoon to sit outside and enjoy some thoughtfully prepared vegan food, that reflects the owner's heart and values.

It I can get photobucket to work I will post pics.

Oh yes, the jewelry at the store "Wait and See" was verrrry delectable. They have a cute store logo, too. Just down the street from "W&S" is a little trailer set up where they serve mojitos and other mixed drinks. Apertivos weren't vegan, but the atmosphere was great and it was all locals.

I am finding a lot of great sounding places, but maybe somebody else has some more input?

yes :)

I loved and went back three times to Be Bop. They have a separate vegan/gluten free menu and the staff answers all questions about ingredients: http://www.bebopristorante.com/

I had one meal at one of the Mens@Sana locations. this is a buffet type of place (no al you can eat, though) with healthy grains and greens etc.
not the best meal I had but solid and filling.

We had cake and coffee at Mudra Cafe, it sucks we came straight from be bop with full stomachs because their food looks great!
Their cakes are a bit pricey but the coffee is dirt cheap (and delicious) so it evened out in the end.

We had ice cream at Grom (a chain, I think) that marks their vegan option. they only had lemon when we went but usually have more flavors to pick from.

I was only there for a weekend and mostly walked around, went to the Casa Museo Boschi-di Stefano (it's free!) and had tons of cheap cheap and great espresso.

Here are my photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/theknife/s ... 25/detail/
make sure to spin on the bull's balls! :)
