There's nothing quite so luxurious as perusing the pastry display at Sant Ambroeus, leaving with a sugary pink box in one hand and a little pink to-go cup in the other.
An Upper East Side institution since first opening its doors in 1982, the neighborhood staple has since expanded with locations downtown, out East and even in Palm Beach. Clearly, no one is immune to their selection of treats.
And now, just in time for the cozy months ahead, everyone's favorite Milanese café has published a can't-miss collection of their most beloved, classic dishes, Sant Ambroeus: The Coffee Bar Cookbook.
The almost-too-pretty-to-open book features seventy-five recipes, from coffee drinks and paninis to cookies, cakes, pastries and more.
