A taste of home
This is one for when you are feeling homesick: Mama’s is a welcoming, American-style bakery run by ex-banker Matt and his Italian wife Cristina who serve up (delicious) freshly-baked bagels, muffins, cheesecake and other specialties from across the pond. Birthday cakes, pumpkin pies and other special occasion cakes are made to order and savoury choices include club sandwiches, filled baguettes, salads and soups. Mama’s is a reference point for Florence’s Anglo-American community, so it’s a useful place to meet other travelers and source local information.
