This is a great place! I love the cupcakes that they have in here, they are perfect for a gift basket and they are very sweet, just there, ready to be desserts!

I used to travel to LA for some good pastries. I'm so glad there is a good bakery in the I.E. Now if they can make decent potato balls and cheese rolls, I would never have to venture to Portos again.

www.dolcecafeandbakery.com Purchased a few single slice cakes and loved their tiramisu. My son loved his swan shaped cream puff. Nice treat for the family. The bakery is huge and has lots of seating. I think they serve sandwiches and coffee too.

Pros: the best sandwiches by far!

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? 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 Crme 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.

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 caf/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!

Dolce is definitely a great find. So far, everything I've tried there has been delicious. They have so many things to choose from that everytime I go its hard to make up my mind what to get! For lunch they have a variety of paninis, pastas, salads, soups, etc and they have a huge bakery filled with tons of goodies! The place is clean and decorated so cute! Definitely stop by if you get the chance!

I don't know what's setting off the 'tirade' post - but my 2 cents about Dolce:

Dolce is mediocre at best - not bad but then not terrific either. I ordered a birthday cake for my husband - Strawberry Fresce and it was 'OK. ' I suppose I'm spoiled by Gabino's Bakery in LaVerne. I also ordered a panini which also, wasn't spectacular.

Pros: HORRIBLE MANAGER AND FALSE ADVERTISEMENTS!

.

My boyfriend first introduced me to the pastries and after trying their tiramisu cake I became a regular customer. A couple weeks ago, we were told during a dinner service by our waiter that they were having a party where we get to sample appetizers, desserts, and wine for FREE. We were thrilled they were having such a great promotion, but when I arrived on March 20 to the ??Free? sampling event to find out that I had to pay $8-$10 I felt like an idiot. I drove 13 miles to the event to find out that I was tricked into some stupid marketing scam! Furious, I spoke with the Chinese manager in mandarin and he had the nerve to push my complaints onto a waitress who told me that they had always made people buy tickets to the event. I told her that our waiter that day had specifically told me to bring friends and family to a FREE event but nobody did anything to assist me. I was just told that the event was free for the members of the chamber of commerce but since our waiter didn??t mention ANYTHING about that I feel that they should have at least let us in anyway. Well, truth be told besides their pastries everything else was disgusting. Don??t bother trying their dinner menu, everything tasted bland as hell and after reading a review about their spoiled pastries I don??t think I will ever go back. Tricking people into coming to their event was just distasteful and using this type of false advertisement is pathetic.

Thank you for the fabulous event. My wife and I enjoyed the whole event and the great service that was included. Everything from great wine, delicious food and desserts. They even had a band playing. Can't wait to go to the next event.
