Dolce Latte is a small pastry shop/café with two branches so far – One in SM Megamall, and one in Quezon Ave. Their specialty is cakes, and croughnuts – In fact, I think Dolce Latte is one of the few remaining local restaurants whose cronuts I have yet to try. Hehe.
Interior. They also sell bread aside from the aforementioned pastries.

French Onion Soup with caramelized onions and fresh mozzarella cheese.
Mom had the Dolcelatte Carbonara, with bacon bits, creamy cheese sauce, and parmesan shavings. According to her, the pasta had way too much cheese sauce that it made her feel queasy after just a couple of bites.
I had the Mushroom Frittata, which consisted of fluffy scrambled eggs mixed with some sautéed shiitake mushrooms, feta cheese, spinach, and topped alfalfa sprouts. Served with some orange slices and two pieces of bruschetta.
And lastly, Cold Milk and Cookies for dessert. Hmmm. I’m not really sure what to think of this dish. I mean, the cookies are decent, and I appreciate the fact that they used non-fat milk, but… There’s just something about this dish that didn’t click well with me. I guess I’m just slightly disappointed at the fact that it’s not chocolate chip. 😡
It’s really such a shame that we never got to taste their croughnuts, or even their cakes, since we were already too full. Maybe I’ll just use that as a reason to come back here. There’s some other stuff on their menu that I want to try out too, so I’m certain that Dolce Latte warrants another visit from me.
Food: 4.5/5 (taste), 5/5 (presentation)
