5 Fabulous Ways to Use a Pint of Gelato This Holiday Season

MYOA ‘Make Your Own Affogato’
Winter is here and the cold weather has started 
to descend upon us in Washington DC so don’t 
forget to take a moment to warm up with a visit 
at one of Dolci Gelati’s several locations 
throughout the DMV and enjoy a traditional 
affogato – a scoop of your favorite gelato 
topped with fresh hot espresso – OR buy a pint 
of your favorite Dolci Gelati gelato to make your 
own affogato’s at home

What is an Affogato? 
An affogato (Italian, “drowned”) is a coffee-based dessert that takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or icecream topped with a shot of hot espresso.                                                                                                   Some variations also include a shot of amaretto                                                                                             or other liqueur.

Who is excited for Halloween this year? If you haven't decided where to go Trick or Treat yet you should come to Dolci Gelati Cafe in Takoma Park between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm for free Kettle Corn samples as our treat to our customers. I am sure kids will love this and you can use this as an excuse to treat yourself with gelato, pastries or coffee. We will also have our fresh homemade Kettle Corn for sell at the store.

Our shop is family and pet friendly so we are looking forward to see lots of kids tomorrow at the store, and to make our trick or treat even better we will have a picture contest.

Fall Inspired Flavors!!!

My favorite season is here!!! Even though summer is the best season for gelato, I love seeing the trees changing their colors and the crisp air. Fall also brings great memories of going camping with my family and having s’mores. There are so many things about fall that I love, one of them is the gelato flavors inspired by this season: Pumpkin Pie, Caramel Apple, Cinnamon, Honey Mascarpone Fig and Cranberry Orange Sorbetto. The flavors are available at the store in Takoma Park.

Beside the amazing gelato fall flavors, there are so many reasons you should visit us this fall:
  • Vanilla or Salted Caramel Affogato 
  • Espresso
  • Chocolate tarts, fresh baked croissants and many other pastries

So enjoy the beauty and all the great flavor that fall brings!!!
Stay tuned for updates of the new store at Shaw….it’s coming soon…very soon!!!
