Mama’s Bakery in Florence: a touch of American food in Tuscany

Are you visiting Florence all day long at in the afternoon you get hungry? Mama’s Bakery is the your solution, since it is the go-to spot for American food in the city. Order a plain bagel with some good cream cheese (which is made of herb and garlic), or a club sandwich, or all the American food you can think of.

Tourists are crazy about the place, the Italians a little bit less, since it is a little bit expensive, according to them. You have to keep in mind that, for them, a sandiwich is just something cheap and quick to make, due to the fact that in Italy people don’t use that much topping.

But never mind, since it’s the only American bar where you can taste the original cupcakes, muffins, cheesecake, cinnamon buns and whoopie pies, maybe during a sunny day, sitting outside in the dehor, or inside, chatting with the waiters. The desserts take advantage of seasonal fruits and, of course the American-style coffee.
