Dolce Restaurant & Bakery – What a Find!

Some days, luck is just plain with you!

Husband and I discovered one of the best food values I have ever seen – right here in Montclair, California!

Dolce Restaurant and Bakery is just that – a bakery with a restaurant attached. We first stopped by this Sunday morning for breakfast (well under $10)… and then we saw the dinner menu! Needless to say, I got out of cooking for the night.

They have a HUGE variety of mouthwatering entrees. From Bistecca alla Portal (Sirloin smothered in a red wine reduction topped with tomato mango chutney - $15.95) to Sole Crème L’Orange (sole in an orange tarragon cream sauce - $12.95). From Apple Glazed Pork Chops (center cut pork chop with an apple shallot butter glaze - $10.95) to Chicken L’America (Grilled chicken breast topped with a fresh fruit and avocado chutney - $9.95). Great continental food at reasonable prices - they range from $6.99 for some of the pasta dishes to $15.95 for the steaks.

Currently (in January 2010) they are running a 2 for $25.00 special. Choice of one appetizer (I recommend the crabcakes), two full-sized entrees (the sole and the pork chops are choices) and a one dessert to share.

The ambiance of the restaurant is okay. It’s large and clean – reminds me of a nice internet café/coffee house. Our waiter Nicki was super. Not a helicopter waiter – didn’t hover, but seemed to know when to show up and was knowledgeable about the food. Great personality and a pleasing manner.

This is the first time we’ve been there and we’ll certainly be back. I would recommend this to just about everyone – even the vegetarians sitting behind us seemed pleased. There are 26 different dinner items on the menu – including pastas. A real find for our neighborhood!
