Come hang out.
CAFEWe do coffee, we do breakfast, and we do lunch. Come in the morning and get a hot coffee and biscotti, or come by during lunch to try one of our paninis… they’re pretty delicious, and for only five buck during our lunch special even the starving student and artist types can swing it. If you’re in Hyde Park, come by, and we’ll take care of you.

If you are up for coffee in the morning, you can still go and have this great caramel cappuccino with a warm croissant. For lunch, you can grab something to eat, like my favorite salmon panini sandwich and have one of there homemade delicious gelato or sorbet…

…The best thing about breakfast are the half priced coffee drinks in the morning, so you can get an entire meal complete with a doubleshot espresso for under $10.

Satisfying My Sweet Tooth at Dolce Vita

True to its name, this coffeehouse serves up bold, smooth coffee and sweet treats in a bright, lively, and colorful setting. My favorite thing to taste here (other than the coffee) is the gelato. However, with menu items like hummus and provolone & pesto Panini, Dolce Vita has a lot more to offer than sweets.

Dolce Vita is located in Austin’s trendy Hyde Park, a neighborhood that embraces the vintage Austin vibe with its vegetarian restaurant, all-natural neighborhood grocery story, and brand-new juice/raw food bar. It’s also right next door to Hyde Park Bar and Grill, making Dolce Vita the perfect place for some after-dinner coffee, dessert, or both. Furthermore, its central location makes this coffeehouse a great place to meet up with friends to catch up on some gossip, before a date, or to just hang out…

…It was one of the first places I ever saw booze and coffee together and I was so happy. I had the chai latte with Barenjager. Mmm. It’s still one of my favorite drinks…

Their sorberitas, assorted martinis and cappuccinos are to die for and fairly priced for a starving college student looking for a treat. Perfect hours, fun happy hour, and a nice crowd for a 26 year old who is sick of Spider House and needs to study- I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. …

DESSERTO’ the sweet life. Come in and enjoy one of our delicious sorbet or gelato flavors. We have seasonal flavors coming in and out, so stop in cause you never know what new treat we might have for you. Besides Gelato & Sorbet we also have many different types of desserts like our Raspberry Chocolate Cake. Come on in and satisfy your sweet tooth… We won’t tell.

…I thought their Hummus was delicious, their raspberry chocolate cake superb, and their pistachio and cinnamon gelatos amazingly smooth and flavorful. For me, slowly tasting Dolce’s chocolate gelato was exactly like slowly savoring a cold, creamy truffle.

This is a great date place. Make sure to check out the gelato; if you’re 21, have them throw in a shot of liqueur from the bar. YUM. They also have authentic Italian desserts. Sit on the patio to people watch and chat the night away. There’s also live music sometimes.

Gelato and white wine outside as the sun is setting – who could ask for more? : ) Great place to stop for dessert after dinner at Mother’s across the street…
