Good but $$$

I've visited both Missoula locations several times over the years and I'm always shocked by the price for the food you get. The food is pretty good but not generous and not overly complicated for what you pay. My last breakfast consisted of a small latte and two pieces of Italian bread with a... read more

Dear Reviewer: Thank you for taking the time to write about Dolce. We are deeply committed to food that supports human health and sustainability of the planet. At breakfast, our bread is fresh, the bacon locally sourced, and the eggs all local and farm fresh. The milk in our lattes is natural from a single-dairy herd in Kalispell MT. With... More

Building is pretty, place is always packed, but you practically serve yourself and the prices are unbelievably high for what it is. Not deserving of the #1 restaurant slot for sure. I've had better service from their coffee shop in the mall.

I love Café Dulce, and often meet employees there for staffing over coffee. It isn't the most affordable coffee shop in town, but the quality is worth the price.

Dear Reviewer: Thank you for your comments on coffee. Means a lot to us. We just got our seasonal spring blend from Intelligentsia, "Persephone". Its delightfully fresh, and indeed speaks to the season. Try it as a pour-over when you get a chance. Best Regards, Peter Lambros Caffe Dolce, Proprietor More

This cafe is like a very spacious European style bistro, complete with baked goods, espresso, gelato, and deliciously flavorful meals. The European feel is accentuated even further by the restaurant's neighborhood location. The massive windows, high ceilings, and pastel walls allow for great lighting, and the seating arrangement encourages a casual atmosphere, which can get intimate after dark. Number one... More

Dear Reviewer- Thank you for taking the time to comment on Dolce. What we do matters deeply to us, and we're grateful to hear when we've hit the mark. A few notes on the ceiling-- it is the work of Italian fresco master Timi Turkeshi. What appeared to be an attempt at "vaulting" is not an attempt at illusion, but... More

The first thing you notice when walking into Caffe Dolce is the vaulted ceiling murals. The second is the gelato- a flavor to please any palate. Then there's the pastries! We make it a point to eat lunch here at least every other week. The food is delicious and the service is quick. Order at the counter, find a table... More

The wine, the beer and the food was exceptional. We each got a cup of soup and shared the Fillet of Beef entree. It was cooked to perfection and was enough for us to split since we are not big eaters. I can't say enough good things about the beef. It was amazing. We will return when travelling through Missoula... More

My wife and I arrived late after a long day, fully expecting to be turned away. But, we were welcomed with smiles and fantastic service and food. Although we were the last diners on what I am sure was a long day, you couldn't tell by the food or the way we were treated. The food was fantastic. They have... More
