Dolci Comes Into Its Own

While enjoying the holidays on Elmwood today I popped into Dolci Dessert Bakery and Gelateria to see how the new operation was working out (see history). I was happy to find that many of the improvements that co-owner Dave Simspon had set out to accomplish were in full swing. Along with the desserts, the cafe was also serving up soups, paninis, breakfast sandwiches and daily specials – today’s specials included pulled chicken breast sandwich, fresh mozzarella salad and a classic lasagna. It’s nice to see the business finally coming into its own.

Not only is Dolci located in the heart of Elmwood Avenue, it caters to a crowd that is accustomed to expecting creature comforts such as lounge and cafe stye seating, as well as ever-changing culinary offerings. Dolci has it all. The cafe now serves coffee from Golden Cup, which is a local company. The best seats in the house are located on the second floor – surf the free Wi-Fi while scoping out the action on the street. No matter what your mood is, Dolci has you covered. Now that all of the conveniences are in place, Dolci should see its business escalate in 2012. The cafe is comfortable, offers freshly baked cookies, baked goods as well as a wide variety of gourmet gelato selections. It’s also spacious enough to accommodate different groups of people at any given time. 
Live music coming in 2012… and hopefully a beer and wine license. Stop in and support a locally owned coffee shop that goes over and beyond with its wide array of delicious offerings.
