What Are People Saying About Dolce and Bean

dolce and bean reviews

Featuring rich belgian chocolate (imported every day, and every bit as decadent as you think) with pastries and a gelato counter, D+B has an incredibly friendly staff and a sweet, polished interior. It's interior is bright and airy and is completely uncluttered.

The coffee is fresh, and espresso should be a welcome addition to bleary eyed families all over the area.

I loved the dark chocolate belgian chocolate with raspberry cream, and the other truffles I tried were wonderful. Similar to Kilwins in Alexandria, this spot will definitely inspire some sweet tooth fantasies.

dolce and bean review

This is such a lovely shop. We went for the first time last week thinking it was just an ice cream parlor and were surprised to find all kinds of delicious and beautifully displayed treats. The owner was kind enough to let us in even after they had closed, so we got to enjoy the decadent gelato.

If you need a housewarming or hostess gift, this is the place. The chocolates and macarons are beautiful and would stand out for sure.

dolce and bean review

First, let's get the obvious out of the way, gelato is by far some of the best ever.  You ask what if I don't want gelato, that is ok because there a lots of flavors of macaroons to choose from.  Still not getting the sweet tooth satisfied, how about the finest Belgium chocolate?  If all else fails there is good coffee. The other wonderful thing about this special treat is the location of Del Ray, a perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by or better yet all the dogs on their evening strolls.  I love the ambiance, the staff and the owner, Petros is just as nice as can be.  Lease stop in, take time to sit and relax and spoil yourself.
