REVIEWS OF Cafe Dolce IN Connecticut

Let’s just say I’m not easily wowed! But this place has taken my ‘wow’ and turned it up the dial a couple thousand notches! You want great food drinks or pastries go here! Great atmosphere and wonderful ambience! It’s the total package: Fantastic owners, staff equally charming and super friendly, best food! I love style - unique interior design and all that stuff and Cafe Dolce knocks this right out of the park! WOWED? I’d say! Enough said!

I love this place. Boutique coffee shop with the best small roast coffee in Norwalk. Amazing pastries and light food too. Staff is super friendly.

Jessica Schule

Decadent pastry shop with delicious cold brew and chai latte.

Irynka Orlova

I love their cappuccino! Really strong and tasty :-)

Melissa Salguero

If you are a coffe nut you will love this cute cafe. They have a wide variety of espresso drinks and teas. They even have cold drinks like milkshakes and lemonades. They alao have a lunch menu that inclues creps, paninis and in house made pastas! The main attraction in my opinion is their variety of sweet treats. I had the apple strudel and it was so amazing. Flakey crust and it was still warm from baking. You can take your order to go or you can sit in the dining area. There were fresh herbs on the table! This place is a solid 5 stars from service to food. I will be returning for sure.

Just left this coffee shop and from a baristas point of view this shop is the best. Not only did my pour over come out perfect but they owner and workers are so sweet.

Elizabeth Womack

The best coffee and crepes along with a wonderful and knowledgeable staff.... I go there at least 3 times a week and don't live near at all it should show it's the best place around.☕

DJ Torcaso

This little cafe was delicious. Grabbed a prosciutto and salami panini with a pineapple lemonade. Both were awesome! All of the coffee looked great (can’t drink coffee anymore unfortunately). Pastries looked delectable and the service was awesome. Friendly staff, very attentive, happy to help you. So many choices for snacks or meals. Definitely give this place a try. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve seen one negative review and none of them hat was stated in that review was applicable. Never been here before today, but will definitely be back next time I’m in the area.

A gem of a bakery hidden in a strip mall where you'd least expect it. Great breakfast pastries and coffee.

The best place in Norwalk! Delicious food and drinks

Alex Henkin

Very nice addition to the neighbourhood. Great food with upscale Italian flavour. Terrific pastries. One of the few places around to get a real cup of tea. Friendly attentive service. Quiet. One should try it.

Nikhil Mehta

Nice and cozy, all what you expect from your coffee shop. Awesome cakes!

Meagan Henry

The pastries are delicious and the coffee is amazing! I can always find a place to sit, even when it's busy.

Paul Heslinga

Great coffee, friendly staff. Both the baked goods and crepes are delicious and fresh. Favorite place to visit Sunday mornings.

Amanda Wilson

Super friendly service & great food. We found this by accident on our way through & we were so glad. The panna cotta was probably the best I've ever had. I'm just sad I probably won't being coming across this again.

Mel Torme

I was looking for a local coffee shop and was a bit apprehensive to try this place, since it's also a bakery and breakfast spot. I was actually looking for Oasis Coffee a block over but couldn't find them. That being said, this place has great coffee. I had a single origin, double shot PNG. Crema was abundant with great mouthfeel. I don't know of they roast their own beans. If not, they have a great source. If they do, they nailed it. It also helps to have a good barista, which they do. Cheers!

Attila Polacsek

It's a Hungarian cafe/bakery with an excellent selections of pastries and more. If you are in the area you must stop there and have a coffee or latte. Super friendly staff.

Polina Kharenko

Best Debos cake. Ever.

John Giuca

Friendly service. Always busy. The pastries are very good, assuming you like the types they offer. Their crepes are great. Tender and delicious

Tom Mirto

this is the best place in fairfield cty I have been a chef and baker all my life you have to try this place once and you will aways go back

Andres Ramos

Best coffee spot in Norwalk. Service is great and so is the menu. Their assortment of baked goods is solid. They also do crepes. I believe they also bake cakes for birthdays etc. They are even open 7 days a week.

Alan Kun

Great brunch spot for the weekend. Cozy and affordable. Service was friendly and attentive. Great atmosphere and delicious food. Amaaazing pastries, sandwiches, soup, desserts, and the excellent chai and fresh made espresso drinks...all exceptional! Highly recommended!!!

Tristan Mcpherson

I love this place! The baked goods are fabulous! The chocolate croissant is one of the best I've found in the United States outside of France and Belgium. Coffee is great. The salads and crepes are also awesome. Can't go wrong!

Mehdi Pouresmail

Coffee was poor giving false impression being “good” coffee. I have been to countless top notch cafes given 90+ reviews by Coffee Review. Baked goods and pastries were exceptions and delicious. Customer service was poor where a guy push my hand away to serve me pastries. Also the cashier was rude not handing back change to my hand but tossing them on the counter. The high ratings are misleading ranked by amateurs and snobs distracted by baked items rather than the focus: coffee! Your business is not a cafe despite your expensive equipments. You do a disservice to the companies that make the equipments. It takes an expert to do it right especially good coffee and customer relations. George Howell would be disappointed. You need improvement and I am never returning.

Brian S

D E L I C I O U S ! Coffee is great, and anything you want to eat is delicious. Pastries, sweet or savory breakfast treats, crepes, paninis, and any dessert treats(cupcakes, cookies, cakes). Wonderful service, 2 owners/chefs and the whole staff are very helpful. Clean, fresh, cordial atmosphere. Worth stopping by anytime you can.

Kristina Josephson

Great coffee and baked goods!!

S Go

This is a wonderful coffee place with always freshly made food. As in delicious lunch and dinner food. Freshly made in house pastries and cakes and super nice staff. We live across town but come here for a great meal and are never disappointed. Specials are always awesome.

Paul Novak

Hungarian pastries, crepes and really good coffee.

Captain Norlon

Larry Pantus

Awesome place. Great owner with good customer service.


Used to go to SoNo Baking Company regularly, their slow service and long lines were always frustrating... once I found Cafe Dolce I haven't looked back. I love this place for coffee, desserts and yummy breakfast treats. Best Almond Croissants!

Yvette Spivock

Very cute and authentic looking inside. Great menu the latte was excellent, the service fantastic, the pastries looked delicious!!Didn’t get to try the food but would definitely recommend and I can’t wait to go back and try more

Laura Ruoti

Excellent coffee, excellent pastries, excellent service. Enough said.

Peter Vassiliou

Great coffee! Delicious panini and excellent service!!!

David Jonas

Friendly, knowledgeable, smiling service!

ioannis kalmanidis

Best crappes

William Knuth

Delicious and Homemade everything. Small but very high quality and freshly prepared breakfast and lunch menu. Ex: If you order a sandwich of any kind it will be on their own freshly baked bread or rolls and daily specials are always something great and interesting. This is one of the few REAL European bakery cafes in the area and they are talented at what they do. Their home baked pastries are as good as pastry gets. Viennese standards like croissants and Euro style cakes as well as wonderful european gems like poppyseed or walnut streudels.

steve Castiglione

Nice place. Very clean.

Amanda Nguyen

Cute little coffee shop, nice staff and amazing coffee

Genesis Spratt

Met up with a bunch of mom friends and their kiddos for morning coffee date. It's small, but the large common table was free, and we maxed it out! Staff was very fast and accommodating. Lots of good food options for all sorts of diet types, and very clean. Would love to see more coffee shops with kid friendly spaces, but obviously understand that some places just don't have enough space for it!

Sofia Briskin

I liked this place a lot. Home style coffee.

Wall-e Martinez

I was overwhelm with the delightful aroma of the coffee and fresh pastries. It take me some time to make my decision over the well presented menu options but with a professional service from the staff offer a premium variety of daily specials. Finally after my meal set and done I was one more time ready for my journey to make a better day.

Vic Levy

Wonderful and welcoming staff, and the deserts are top notch! The only problem with this place are the long line and no available tables every time I stop by. Seriously, its time to expand!

Laszlo Fazekas

Rare find, authentic European pastry. Dolce offers the best Napoleon ever. Azert magyarkent nekem tul edesek a sutemenyek. Five stars.

Dawn Brown

Visited on a Thursday. The service here is better than most. This place has a good atmosphere.

William Cipolli

Phenomenal. Croissants for days and good espresso drinks.

Tudor Cosmin Teleaga

Probably the best place to get a quality coffee in the area. Staff is friendly and the overall experience is excellent. Highly recommend.

Chad Chasteen

Great coffee and some tasty pastries make this place a winner!

Judith Wasserman

I have been there several times now and welcome this wonderful cafe to my neighborhood. Great coffee, great food, always fresh and delicious . With the friendly atmosphere my family and I enjoy the cafe immensely.

Jim Eckel

Best pastries outside of Continental Europe!

Hannah Shapiro

This is my absolute favorite coffee shop. Its a fairly small venue. The coffee is extremely good - I like strong coffee. The americanos and cappuccinos ate very good. The pastery/bakery selection is perfect. They have good crepes and paninis too. The service is always excellent.

Elena Beleno Carney

Delicious coffee and pastry. We driving from Massachusetts from DC, stopped here by chance. We will definitely stop intentionally next trip! Really good coffee, fresh food, professional baristas. 2 minutes of route 15.

robert cornwell

Great coffee and service

Jeremiah Poker

Been here a few times now. Tried the crepes, morning pastries, and some of the cookies/sweets. Everything amazing so far. Best ham & cheese croissant around, ask them to heat it up slightly. Semi-table service. Order at counter and they will bring you goodies :)

Jay Robinson-Duff III

The food was very tasty and it was a great break from our activities of the day.

Grace Dennison

One of the BEST crepe I have ever had. THANK YOU!!!

Daniel Neaton

Excellent cappuccino, very nice vibe. I'll be back!

Dina Quintanilla

Delicious pastries. Great coffee/espresso drinks and matcha lattes. The hot menu is also a favorite including sweet and salty crepes. The owners are really friendly and make sure that you are well served. Overall, would recommend to anyone looking for a sit down meal or a quick coffee drink.

Aub Driver

Bold and busy European styled cafe with plenty of food offerings.

Tina Bratbo

Great place. Very rustic and chic. A little on the pricey side, but the products are of the very best quality - you get what you pay for. Would definitely go back

Coffee Time And Travel

The cafe is actually pretty big inside and they had a good assortment of cookies, cakes, and pastries As usual we ordered a small black coffee for the husband and a medium iced latte for me. Along with that we ordered a chocolate chip cookie and crescent The crescent was delicious, it was the first time I’ve ever had one. It was a thin bread like crust filled with a cinnamon streusel and was delicious. The latte at first I though to myself great they just gave me a big glass of milk but it was also really good and the espresso was made correctly. The husband said the coffee was very good so that was a plus. The final cost was $11+ for a small coffee, medium latte, crescent, and chocolate chip cookie.

Rick Yorgey

A great find just off the Merritt Parkway (Exit 40A). Delicious soups, crepes, paninis, desserts and probably everything else. We were travelling thru from DC to Maine and happened to stop here on our way north. We were so impressed that we made a point of stopping again on our way south a week later. Cafe Dolce will be our lunch spot on the trip to/from Maine for years to come.

Alex Ferro

Good coffee and nice meeting spot!

Beth Timlett

Lovely little coffee shop, enjoyed a quiet cup if tea with a cookie. Lots of locals which is always a good sign.

Marina Ka

Really cozy place with breakfast/lunch options and delicious baked goods. The staff is fantastic.

Iliana Zuñiga

My sons and I just had breakfast there this morning and it was incredibly good. My 10-year-old son said that the café was a really cool place referring to the ambience. And my very picky eight-year-old boy just loved his breakfast sandwich on a croissant. Service was great and the food was superb. Great deal for your money and great food. Will definitely be back

Cheyenne Collier

Omg soooo good. Came here randomly because we went to a gas-station nearby. The best latte Ive ever had. The pesto pasta with handmade noodles was mindblowing!!!!! Mom tried the breakfast crepe which was really good as well.

Hilario Pena

Too small , not many tables

Ed Jones

Very friendly with a European flair of food and coffee choices. Exceptional choice when want something other than "chain" food.

Caitlin Connolly

Only place were I can get a REAL Cafe latte and house made fresh mushroom stuffed ravioli with a dried tomato sauce at the same time and LOVE both. They even keep iced filtered water out for their customers to help themselves. Favorite place since I moved here


Best coffee. Spinach feta croissants are delicious. Soups yum too.

Toby Rockwell

Real coffee drinks, a 4 shot large cappuchino. Crepes, savory or sweet. Fresh pastries and lunch paninis and salads. All this is only 2 minutes off the Merritt parkway.

Daniel Weiner

Great shop. Friendly staff, incredible cappuccinos. Their cold brew is great too. I'm not a pastry guy but the couple I've had were pretty good.

Robert Sabo

Excellent Hungarian pastries, excellent service

Ivette Pino

Loved the nutella strawberry crepe, so yummy. Boyfriend had a chorizo panini so good he ate it before I could take a photo.

Jason Ross

This coffee/pastry shop is just what Silvermine needed. It has been here for over 2 years now and has become a social hub for the community. Their food, pastries and coffee are beyond reproach and I would put it up against any fine NYC coffee shop or pastry shop. Little Italy, eat your heart out and meet the Hungarian Hot Spot!!! Thanks for being part of our communitty

Frank Ruiz

Nice neighborhood cafe serving some delicious looking pastries and foods. The place is warm and cozy, the kind that you would choose to have a nice meal with a friend. The brewed coffee isn't very good, it's so light it tastes watered down, maybe the espresso based drinks are better. Staff are very nice and attentive and the prices are ok.

Mark Palladino

Outstanding food and pastries!!!

Christine Kurjan

Excellent European bakers. Easy-going spot for hot-bev and tasty snack. Very authentic recipes.

Diane Jellerette

Wonderful pastries, crepes and coffee!

Amy Holomakoff

This is an amazing little place! Everyone who works here is beyond nice and the food is always delicious! Soup, Salad, Paninis, Specials... And did I forget to mention the chocolate croissants? OMG! If you haven't tried this cafe yet, you're definitely missing out! They are also perfect for if you need to get some work done on your laptop. Extra outlets make it very easy to sit and relax a while!

Dana Berwick

Really good coffee. They offer gluten free cookies, cake, and crepes.

James Puma

Latte was great! Pastries looked amazing!! Come early or they will be GONE :-P

Mike Stach

Best place for coffe, pastries and lunch !!! People who work there are very accommodating and cool.

Gracie Forte

I am writing this while I am here now and I am very happy with their food. I ordered the chicken Cesar salad and it was amazing. The chicken was great. It was definitely worth the extra money. I would also recommend their crepes. My siblings were very happy with them. I strongly recommend coming here for a quick lunch or breakfast.

Justin Robinson

It's the best option for coffee and pastries I've found in the area.

Consistently fantastic desserts and service. Went in on a Saturday morning and was treated to a warm farmer's cheese and peach strudel - out of this world!

Gleb Popoff

Hands down best bakery in Norwalk maybe even Fairfield County. Their pastries are amazing, they offer good breakfast including coffee. Very easy to park and get to the place
