Dolce Bakery & Cafe Kissimmee
I’ll be honest, I live in Kissimmee but when people ask what’s good to eat here, I usually reply “Nothing really.” Not until I found Dolce Bakery & Cafe. I can’t believe it’s been here 4 years and I’ve never noticed it! It’s on Osceola Parkway near Old Dixie Highway. It was a hidden for me, but fear not, the Feisty Foodist finds her way.
I go inside and instantly, the display of pastries welcomes me. OOOOOHHH…. It’s very bright in here. Am I in Miami? Modern decor, the amazing aroma of fresh coffee. I’m looking at all the baked goods, everything looks great. You know that kid in the candy store? Yep, that’s how I’m feeling right now. So many choices! The staff is very friendly here and quite helpful as well. My friend and I decide to each pick an item. I’ve got to get some café con leche too.
My fresh fruit berry tart was AH-MAY-ZING! What would I have done to make it better? Nothing. The crème pâtissière (pastry cream) was perfect and the pâte sucrée (sweet tart dough) was a beautiful golden color. In general, I typically don’t eat all of the crust/dough (usually because it’s overbaked/too dry/bleh) but this tart was done just right. The café con leche was good as well. The guava and cheese pastry was tasty but not the best one I’ve ever had. Still really enjoyable though. I’m stuffed from lunch earlier or else I would have ordered more items!
Overall, this a great spot! Indoor and outdoor seating is available. For those not into sweets, there are other menu items such as salads, sandwiches and breakfast items.
