I’m always trying to find a new coffee spot to get the work grind going. The Sant Ambroeus Hospitality Group opens Sant Ambroeus Coffee Bar at The Hanley Building, a collection of luxury residences on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Continuing the success of the group’s coffee bars at The Loews Regency Hotel and Sotheby’s, the newest iteration features an assortment of coffee drinks and grab-and-go Milanese fare, in addition to lunch and cocktails.
To complement selections from the espresso and cappuccino bar, the Sant Ambroeus Coffee Bar menu will offer breakfast pastries including signature Italian cornetti, scones and cookies. For lunch, guests can enjoy warm pressed panini, including the Duomo with tuna, olives, celery and cherry tomatoes and a selection of paninetti—soft house-made rolls, with a delicate crust brushed with olive oil. Other savory items include salads and seasonal soups made to order. The coffee bar also serves Sant Ambroeus’ celebrated desserts, including Gianduia, a hazelnut sponge cake and Tiramisú.
The newest Sant Ambroeus Coffee Bar will serve traditional Italian cocktails such as the negroni, bellini, spritz and more. Each day from 5pm to 9pm, the coffee bar welcomes guests for Aperitivo Hour, a traditional Italian custom, featuring an assortment of small bites with the purchase of cocktails or wine.
Designed by Bonetti / Kozerski Architecture and Design DPC, the coffee bar features elements inspired by the original Sant Ambroeus restaurant on Madison Avenue, including silver travertine floors and walnut-paneled walls paired with fluted marble in the signature Sant Ambroeus colors of pale pink, mahogany and cream.
