Fantastic pastries. I was visiting for a few days and met a friend for breakfast. I admired the pastries and cakes in the case as I purchased my muffin. They had a delightful item named Forbidden Fruit, shaped as a shiny green apple, complete with a tiny stem. I planned to pick up a couple on the way out but by the time we finished they were sold out! I selected a couple of alternative cakes that were fabulous. My advice - they go quick so don’t wait!

Lovely pastries!! Fantastic carrot cake! Nice selection of soup & sandwich meals. Very consistent. Staff is a bit rude, or I would have given 5 stars instead of 4.

The coffee service is elegant and tasty, the desserts are delicious and visual art works and they are friendly to small kids and it's quiet. My 9yo would add that the mint chocolate chip gelato had actual chocolate chips instead of small pieces. This is apparently a symptom of their general food service philosophy where they just seem to do the extra bit to make everything perfect.

Serves Counter Culture coffee and has a phenomenal selection of treats to match. Definitely worth a stop!

Service is nice, sometimes a little overbearingly nice. This place is great for anyone with a sweet tooth craving. Coffee is okay. The ambiance of the shopping center is a little generic. Some more plants would go a long way outside. Nice place to gab if gabbing is your thing.

Dulce is awesome! The pastries are BEAUTIFUL! They even let me order a mocha even though they had just closed! It was great.

Fabulous customer service! Desserts are melt in your mouth! Food is delicious as well. They also have 4 dollar mimosas right now and it was just what I needed after a long day.

Secondly, it's a great place for an afternoon patio stop. They've got beer, wine, gelato, small desserts, and a dog-friendly patio and staff. I've never felt so welcome! And it's great to have a patio that looks out on calm landscaping with flower boxes and not a busy highway or bland busy parking lot.

Affogato..the best for me i The chocolate macaroon is just so heavenly..it is crunchy on the first bite mixed with a chewy texture of the toasted coconut with chocolate in it .

We had the best breakfast days while our stay in London. Menu has lots and lots of options, you can mix them as you like, food is delicious, staff is so so friendly and welcoming. It’s a small and cute cafe, nice vibe, and we found place even for a large group of 10 people. Thank you, guys :)

This place is on POINT! I’ve been here over a dozen times and have had a superb meal and experience every single time. Their meals are fresh and delicious, but the deserts are off the hook! Today I finally tried their infamous carrot cake and I can honestly say I’ve never had carrot cake so good in my life! Love this place and feel lucky to have it around the corner from me, but would also drive across town just to have some Dulce.
