Food Porn: Dolci

UPDATE: Dolci moved twice after this article and have recently closed.

Elmwood Ave has a surprisingly large selection of desserts.  I’ve had some good experiences at most of the restaurants and we have featured Delish and Zillycakes on our website.  But I’ve yet to have an experience on Elmwood like I have with other dessert shops.  Dolci was my last shot at being blown away, I’ve already tried their Pomegranate Italian Ice over summer and thought it was delicious.

Dolci’s menu includes several flavors of Gelato, tiny cakes that are perfect for a couple to share, and the usual cookies, cupcakes and tarts.  They’ve recently added pizza’s to their menu to go a long with their non-dessert options like various specialty breads and soups.  We stopped by on a week night and grabbed some food to go, here’s how it tasted…..


I have to say that before this I had never tried a Macaroon before but always wanted to try one.  So when I walked inside and looked at the counter, these Chocolate/Coconut Macaroons really stood out.  I realize that these baked goods might not be very “fresh” and that they very well could have been sitting there for hours, but when I got home and took a bite into one I was a little disappointed when it was a really stale exterior with a soft coconut filling.  Maybe I didn’t really experience a true “macaroon,” but either way, I wasn’t impressed.

However I was impressed with their S’More Cupcake that I also ordered.  A soft/delicious vanilla cream cheese frosting with a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers and topped some hardened chocolate sauce.  What really set it apart with the cupcake itself that was baked with some Anise flavoring that reminded me of freshly made Pizzelles.  Not only was that delicious but the cupcake itself was moist and fell apart as I ate it.

They have so much more to offer at Dolci, I’m looking forward to trying out more of their desserts and posting them here.
