Founder Mario Clemente was raised around the warm hearth of home-cooked Italian food in Bari,Italy. Cafe 252 is his way of bringing the rich flavors and fresh ingredients of Southern Italy back to Ansonia. Here at Cafe 252, it is our mission to provide every customer with more flavor, more quality ingredients, and more courtesy. We resolve to provide a friendly, family-style atmosphere for each patron that comes through the door. Our fresh-faced staff serves up a variety of sandwiches, salads, pastries, and panzerotti daily.And trust us, your taste buds will bring you back for more. How do we know? Because we Italians settle for nothing less than the best; just have a taste of our New York baked bread or Nutella Croissants. If we don't have exactly what you are looking for, tell us! Our number one concern is you. In addition to our traditional Italian cuisine, we also are available for catering services for any occasion.
