Stacy's Mom at Ambition Cafe

stacys mom at ambition cafe

Alas, you can't get Stacy's Mom with Mexican Wine. (What?)

Let it be known: we have had Stacy's Mom. And Stacy's Mom has got it goin' on.

So there we were, tucked into a booth at Ambition Cafe in Schenectady, scanning the lunch menu. It's all the usual stuff until we get about half-way down the page: Stacy's Mom -- turkey, fontina, garlic mayo, lettuce and tomato, all on warmed, herb foccacia.

Yes, we'll have that, please.

And we're happy we did. If you think about sandwiches like pop songs (we'll try not to stretch too far), Stacy's Mom is one of those uncomplicated, hooky sort of things, the idea behind which seems so simple that you'd think everyone could make them. But more often than not, they just end up being kind of forgettable. We've still got Stacy's Mom in our heads, though.

Was it the best sandwich we've ever heard eaten? No. But we're looking forward to spinning it again.

The Bottom Line

Stacy's Mom sings. And Ambition Cafe itself is kind of fun. Check it out for lunch in Schenectady.

Ambition is one of the gems in Schenectady. It is a great little place to enjoy a fabulous lunch. You should go immediately if you haven't already been....

I highly recommend the Ambition sandwich and the Cranberry Club - yum....

My personal favorite is 'Ambition" with the "All American cheeseburger" coming in a close second, yum,yum!!
Get there for lunch early, Ambition fills up quickly. enjoy the best lunch ever!!

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
