I always see Dolcelatte along the right side of Quezon Avenue whenever hubby and I would go to Commonwealth. I knew it was a coffee shop, but to my surprise, it’s actually so much more!
Back in May, when our cook went home to the province for a vacation, I decided to have dinner at Dolcelatte with my family. It looks like a small place from the outside, but inside it’s actually big. It even has a second floor with function rooms so you can hold parties and events but I’ll talk about them later.
For dinner, hubby decided to order Hungarian Aglio Olio (P285, pictured above). Sliced Hungarian sausage sauteed in garlic tops a pesto-based spaghetti. It was very tasty and we were impressed by the generous amount of sausage slices that graced the dish. Yum!
Our son settled for Old Fashioned Cheeseburger (P250, pictured above). A thick and juicy all-beef patty is covered with melted American cheese on a ciabatta bun filled with sweet onion slices, cucumbers, and tomatoes. It comes with fries and coleslaw on the side. Judging from the way our son wolfed it all down, I would say it was very good.
Our daughter, who prefers to have rice during mealtimes, ordered Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet (P375, pictured above). Sole fish fillet is coated with cheese and then served with rice and side salad. I was surprised at how big the fish was. Suffice to say the little girl was unable to finish it so we had it wrapped and took the leftover home.
Dolcelatte’s second floor houses a fully-equipped function room where you can hold private events.
There’s also a larger, expandable room that can serve as a venue for bigger events like debuts, birthday celebrations, press conferences, and maybe even weddings. I never would’ve guessed looking from the outside. Dolcelatte has reasonable event packages inclusive of food and drinks to boot.
In general, food is good at Dolcelatte. Ironically, I haven’t tried their coffee yet and I’ve been there twice. They sell breads and pastries that are pretty yummy too.
