Delish bagels, good Amrican coffee, fabulous sweets. Love that this place makes me feel at home. Friendly service and good prices, too. Cute American-Italian couple owns the place.

“The only thing missing was the NY Times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Stopped here after visiting the Pitti Palace. Mama's Bakery is about a 5 minute walk. i hadn't realized how much I missed American coffee and a bagel w/cream cheese until I ate there. I was thrilled when I asked for an espresso and was told "We only have American coffee". I love espresso, but after a while you just want to taste the watery stuff. The bagel wasn't as chewy as a NY bagel, but definitely close enough to cure some homesickness. Great atmosphere too!
