Driving up Nivel Hills, you would not miss this modish cafe just right after Bellini. But don’t be intimidated by Dolce Cafe’s posh tone for their prices would not cost you an arm. With desserts ranging 80php up, breads from 50php up and coffee & shakes from 75php to 130php, Dolce’s offerings are worth every dime.
The cafe seats around 12 people al fresco and around 35 indoors. Edd and I were greeted by the aroma of fresh espresso when we entered the cafe. Not to mention the modern and chic arrangement and design of the cafe added up to the excitement to try out the bistro’s specialties.
Dolce Cafe, who just had their soft opening 13th of February 2012 , blazes products that are loved by the owners. One of Dolce Cafe’s bestsellers are their buttercakes. Mango, ube (purple yam) and the classic buttercake are sold at 80php a slice. Most customers rave about the buttercake and mango, but the ube buttercake would be my personal pick.
Dolce’s Chocolate Trifle -layers of mouse, moist cake and cookie crumbs topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with choco syrup. I bet your already slobbering.
Dolce Delight. This was my friends E and Homer’s dessert. It looked so foxy I had to let Edd take a picture of it. hehe. Will definitely try this when we go back this weekend. Price: 150php.
Dolce’s Raspberry Roar. Iced Espresso in a tall glass with raspberry syrup at the bottom. Stir and enjoy! Priced at 130php.
Dolce’s No Sin Apple Oats. Apple, Cinnamon, oatmeal and oats topped with whip! No Sin Apple Oats is a drink invented by Holly Dychangco, CEO Chrome architecture & Interior Design Studio. Holly also is responsible for the interior design of the swanky Dolce Cafe.
And before heading out, check out some of the nifty stuff for sale!
Great looking coffee and tea mugs! ^_^
Had my sugar fix for tonight and looking forward to another sweet journey this weekend to Dolce Cafe!
And thanks a bunch to Holly and Shelah Dychangco for being warm hostesses!
