I love walking up Madison Avenue in the summer and seeing everyone sitting on benches outside the ice cream shops that are hidden among all the designer stores. Sant Ambroeus is a well known Italian "pasticceria, gelateria and ristorante" on the Upper East Side. I grew up having birthday cakes from here every year that were amazing. Their gelato is equally as good. I got the mint chip, and it was so refreshing it cleared my sinuses. The quality of the gelato is so good, and thick, the chocolate is so rich and the mint was so fresh.
