Stopping by Dulce café was easy, as the location is right off of a main thoroughfare in Durham. Coming in, visitors are greeted by a sizable ‘living room’ lounge area that is comfy and unpretentious. The gelato selection is modest, but good, and always includes some vegan options (sorbetto).
Attention chocolate lovers! The Chocolate Nero is a rich and vibrant chocolate gelato that is almost pudding-like. Also worth a taste are the cherry, salted caramel, and coffee-flavored gelato. We tried the sorbetto as a refreshing change, and the lychee nut sorbetto was wonderful! It was very fruity and light, with a ‘creamy’ texture and good lychee essence. They also offer specialty baked items that are unique takes on traditional French pastries. Beautiful individual-sized fruit tarts, mango layer cakes, pistachio éclairs, Frasier cakes, and Latin American Alfajores (light sandwich cookies with dulce de leche filling) share space without fighting. And this is one of the only shops I’ve seen with both light-as-meringue coconut macaroons, as well as the quintessential and diametrically different French macarons. They currently have a macaron in Peach-Sriracha flavor that dwindled during our visit. Need we say more?
