Dolce Via is Back

The Dolce Via is BACK and JUST AS GOOD as I remembered it. It has only been closed for two months but they seemed very long.

The website shows the restaurant before they spent two months working on it. It is less cluttered now but just as funky looking and the prices appear to be unchanged. The egg scrambles and deliciously spicy little cubes of potato hash are still fantastic. The blackberry raspberry fruit scones which first lured us the the bakery cafe are still absolutely perfect. They have lost the vintage kitchen table but the cafe still has an eclectic look. The chairs are still kinda dingy and not all that comfortable but adequate. There is still a play area for kids and a big cooler for looking at cakes. And the people who wait on you are still perfectly charming. On Sunday there seemed to be many many babies and small children which was lovely. It is come as you are, whoever you are, as long as you are willing to pay what it costs for the best ingredients carefully prepared and presented. It is at Taylor and Arco.
