Trick or TREAT at Dolci Gelati Cafe!!!

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. Post a picture with your kid or pet wearing a costume at our store Dolci Gelati Cafe tomorrow on Facebook or Twitter to win a free pint of gelato. Use #DGHalloween for this contest.

We hope you have a great spook and fun Halloween.

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!!!

Dolci Gelati Cafe to open at Shaw this Fall!!!

Wow I cannot believe that Summer is basically over. We had such a great season this year with the store in Takoma Park as we promoted the Dog Days of Summer Creative Flavor Contest with local media. The promotion was a huge social media event and on top of this we will donate proceeds of the sales to a local charity. Also, we have been very busy with the new store construction at Shaw, and even though the construction part is a little bit stressful we have been thrilled choosing the perfect furniture, decoration and everything that will express our mission to delivery the best product to our customers. The new store is full of new concepts including a popsicle station with chocolate dipping and fresh fruits and nuts where you can create your own customized popsicle. This is just one of the surprises we are preparing for you.

We are planning on open the store early this Fall and cannot wait to embark in this new journey with all of you.

Here is a sneak peek of the store....

Stay tuned for updates of opening date, menu, promotions and much more.
