Delicious local bakery

I have been to Dolce several times now, for both dinner and brunch. The food is good and basically normal fare (burgers, etc...) without being boring. Everyone will be able to find something they like without feeling like they've had that particular dish somewhere else before. My husband loves... read more

Every year for many years a group of us drive from different areas and meet at Dolce Bistro and Bakery. We arrive around breakfast time and leave near dinner time. We have always been made to feel welcome and get great service even though we stay a really long time. This time I had the Apple Cinnamon Crodonut with coffee... More

I had been wanting to Visit Dolce Bistro & Bakery for a while now and got the chance when we took a relative out to dinner for her Birthday. Dolce is positioning themselves more as a gastropub rather than just a "plain" restaurant. The sign says "Dolce Bistro and Bakery" still. As usual for our dinners, we got there early,... More

My wife and I went here on a Groupon Special . We are very glad we did. We each had a burger and they were both cooked great and very tasty. We also had a craft beer ....... also very good. And finished off the meal sharing a piece of Almond cake. It was very fresh and super good. We... More

I went in on a recommendation and was so glad to see a place like this in the inland empire. They had a good number and variety of craft beers on tap and bottled. The burger SELECTION was not abundant but the burgers themselves are AWESOME. I had the cheese and onion which is much much tastier than it sounds.... More

We wanted to try something different for a late lunch, so we drove to Dolce Bistro & Bakery in the city of Montclair. The reviews were hit and miss, the menu looked appealing, and we wanted to support a local business. Upon entering, the business was large and looked welcoming. I thought the interior was decorated very nicely. Besides a... More

I have been dying to try an original Cronut from New York. What sounds better than a donut/croiussant hybrid pastry, filled with cream? Instantly knew I needed to try one, ASAP. Unfortunately I live nowhere NEAR the east coast. We were in California for the Holidays. After researching online, I found that I could buy Croughnuts from this bakery, which... More

This little restaurant may not be heavily advertised, but it is easily the best of the local eateries and well worth a trip. The burgers are excellent and range from good old fashioned style to creative ones like the "Not so Classic"; the latter is especially tasty. The braised short rib is very moist and tender, and the portabello mushroom... More

We have been long time customers. The menu includes new dishes as well as old favorites. Pasta dishes and sandwiches are creative and tasty. There are several really good vegetarian choices. Cakes are light and fluffy. Service is welcoming and accommodating. A new wine bar is an appealing addition. It has been fun to see the evolution of this unique... More

We loved this salad, healthy with mixed greens, cheese and walnuts. They are well-known as a local bakery and they have desserts, cakes by the slice or whole, cupcakes, and many kinds of cookies. They have just had a major renovation. Restaurant is in the corner of the parking lot and hidden from the street, but huge when you walk... More
