“Coffee and sweets with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Andrea Pansa is an old fashioned, stylish pastry bar on the Main Square of Amalfi, next to the cathedral. Just have a sit on their terrace, order a coffee (the shakerato is heavenly), and choose any one of their pastries. Or linger a bit longer and have a drink. Whatever you choose, you'll enjoy every bit of it!

“A must...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Great little coffee and pastry shop situated in the main square of Amalfi. We visited twice a day for the delicious offerings especially the superb frothy cappuccino. Especially nice to sit outside in the evening for an after dinner coffee and people watch.

“You only do this once.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We visited the Andrea on our stop in Amalfi. We were told by our guide that you pay a pretty penny if you sit outside and order. We paid 27 euros (yes I know but as the title of our review states) for 3 cafe con leches and 3 Santa Rosa sfogliatella pastries, but what a feeling of sitting outside at 9 something in the morning on a June morning, enjoying the fresh air, the morning hustle and bustle of the locals, the church bells rang once or twice, the swallows buzzing around the church bell tower and enjoying one of the best lemon filled pastries I have ever eaten with the two ladies I love. The Andrea fullfilled my family morning breakfast dream. Grazie!!!

“Amazing "do-nuts"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I visited this little cafe/patisserie in mid-morning, after skipping breakfast. Instead of choosing a croissant, I had what looked to be a "zeppoli." However, the person behind the counter simply called it a donut...but it was sprinkled with sugar (like a zeppoli). It was sooo good!! This and a cappuccino is all you need. Also, the chocolates here are also amazing!!!

“Deserts, coffee, aperitifs and people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We visited Andrea Pansa every day we were in Amalfi, sometimes twice a day, in the morning for sweets and coffee or in the early evening for drinks and snacks. Service is outstanding and the pastries were out of this world. We tried most if, not all. We particularly enjoyed people watching from the outside tables. Do not miss it.
