I had a great experience at Sugar & Spice Bakery, though it was not in person. I live far from Florence and would like to order a decorated cake as a birthday present for a friend of mine who lives in Florence. Ordering on-line turned out to be quite easy. Masha, the owner, was very kind and responsive. She specified... More

We were celebrating our wedding at Castello di Gabbiano in Firenze September 7th 2013, and the hotel manager Cornelia recommended Sugar&Spice since we prefered an american wedding cake. Good choice. My husband and I visited the bakery in Firenze to decide the details for the cake, and we also did a tasting of different alternatives. Masha and her colleague were... More

We have lived in Florence for two years and after trying Mama's Bakery and The Diner we had given up hope of enjoying an American breakfast experience in this city. The bagels and service at Mama's Bakery left us so disappointed and the food at the Diner is really unappetizing. Their food is all stored in the refrigerator with salsa... More

Upon entering the door, you can smell the sweet fragrance of a freshly baked apple pie. The cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate combined together gives you the desire to taste one of their delicacies. I remembered when I first entered their store, it was love at first sight. I was impressed on how they furnished the place; it's very cozy and... More

I didn't waste time when I got to know they have some of my favourite food (that it's really hard to find in Italy) and in the last couple of weeks I went to Sugar & Spice a few times. After trying several things (bagels, chocolate chip cookies, brownies and others), I can say that the quality is average, nothing... More

A friend of mine, who lives in Asia, got in touch with them and ordered a Xmas pack of cupcakes online. So they (from Sugar & Spice at Borgo Croce) called me and said they could only deliver it on the 24th in the morning. I said I was going to be working at that time. Then they told me... More

Cupcakes are expensive and don't taste so good! NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY

We had a great experience at Sugar & Spice Bakery this afternoon -- what attracted me was the sign that read "Specialita Americana" because I was looking for a very specific item that would be difficult to describe in Italian, and I was desparate. The owner, Masha, greeted me kindly when I walked in and recognized that I could not... More

I ordered a birthday cake and it was awful, incredibly sweet and tasted very strange. Their pies are a bit better. We had apple and pumpkin pie that was passable but as they are also quite costly next time I think I'll bake one myself. They have several stores and possibly the bigger ones have better quality goods, i ried... More

Not really good. The cupcakes are ok, nothing more. If you are desperate for a cupcake, you can find your fix here. Otherwise wait until you get home and have another excellent italian biscuit from Robiglio, just up the road
