You like plates piled high? Lots of carbs? Plenty of cheese? Wads of greens and dripping in sauce? You have come to the right place. Hardly anyone in a party of 6 went home without a doggie bag, except from my granddaughter who wisely chose a simple grilled cheese sandwich and no trimmings. My chimichuri sandwich was gargantuan but sheltered... More

We were on our way to John's Incredible Pizza for a birthday party and with needed a cake at the last minute. Saw Dolce Bistro & Bakery across the street and stopped by. We were not disappointed with how well kept the restaurant was and the variety of baked goods that they offered and at good prices. We should have... More

When this establishment first opened, I preferred the 'serve yourself' food option as well as the bakery that had much more variety. However, they now have a full bar and the walk-up bakery is still an option. The food is pretty good. We had a staff holiday party of about 30 people and it seemed overwhelming for the servers. I...

If you like being lectured by waitresses with a "TUDE"-this is your place. Apparently you are only allowed to have your eggs scrambled, if you are a large party no one can sit until at least half of you show, and if the restaurant double books the banquet room--it's your fault. The establishment has a large party 'Policy" of an... More

Dolce is normally a sure bet for pastries, cupcakes, etc. Paying near $100 for a 10 inch single layer birthday cake I expected something pretty darn good! The cake looked nothing like the photos they showed me and said it would look like: Instead of a dark blue starry night, it looked like whipped splotty mucinex. Then, almost even more... More

We met up with some friends and they suggested some pastries and coffee we had not gone to Dolce before. Wow what a wonderful bakery. We will return again.

Asian owned bakery, very nice pastries, good fancy breakfast menu. Don't let the mall location fool you, it's a foodie kind of place.

The food is acceptable for the price they charge. An order of their cheesy tater tots reveals that it is just frozen tater tots that are refried with some cheese and green onions. This cost a little under $10. The beet salad with steak was refreshing -- the sweetness of the beets, combined with their crunchiness, provided a lovely contrast... More

We just ate here for the second time. I was underwhelmed the first time, so was a bit hesitant to eat here again. I had the Smoky Bliss burger - and I would get it again. The bun was good and held up well, the meat cooked to a nice med rare and the bacon, spinach, onions and cheese were... More

Dolce has lots of great options...they sometimes seem like an authentic European cafe. I got my most recent birthday cake here!!!
