We were stumbling around looking for another restaurant as we had a taste for American food on a cold rainy Sunday morning. This looked like an American franchise...well lit, staff wearing uniforms, etc. Greeted by the baker's wife...she's Italian and he's from San Francisco. Well it was just what we wanted....great bagels with lox, etc. I had an egg and bacon sandwich...everyone loved the food. We went back three times for breakfast while we were there. It's not too far from Santo Spirito and if you are in the Oltrarno area be sure to stop in....clientele are locals and college students.

It's hard to find good american breakfast in Florence, and as an american travelling abroad for an extended period this was a nice place to go. They have decent bagels and more american sandwiches, but I found the proprietor unwelcoming and intimidating, and my friends who went independently felt the same. The food is a nice change of pace though, if you're looking for a taste of home. Pricey though!

The food is good but I expected more variety. Cupcakes and brownies can be found elsewere in Florence! The sandwiches were well prepared and tasty, I liked the bagel bread.
The place is clean but it looked kind of "empty" and not very warming.
The staff makes its work but they seemed mostly shy.....a smile would have been appreciated. The only one who seemed to take care of clients was the owner.
This place could do more to be "distinctive".

Every time I visit Mama's it makes me happy. The service is great and the treats are delicious. A little bit of America on a back street in Florence.
