From the moment it opened its doors on the Upper East Side in 1982, Sant Ambroeus—without question the most quintessential Milanese café in New York City—became a beloved neighborhood institution with a devoted clientele. Attracting families, art lovers, and executives from the nearby Metropolitan Museum of Art and Midtown, it wasn’t long before it was also on the “must visit” list of international visitors.
The justly famed and consistently superb homemade breads and pastries, savory sandwiches, creamy gelatos, and perfectly crafted coffee drinks have spawned restaurant and coffee bar locations in New York, Southampton and Palm Beach.
Featuring seventy-five recipes, including coffee drinks, breads, light fare such as tramezzini and panini, cookies, cakes and pastries, and the famed gelati and sorbetti, Sant Ambroeus: The Coffee Bar Cookbook brings the true soul of Milanese culture into readers' homes—quality, craftsmanship, and the feeling of being among friends—and delivers just a little of the magic stardust that has made Sant Ambroeus an essential destination for nearly 4 decades.
