A Dolcelatte Brunch Date

Last Sept. 13, 2013, I randomly saw and participated in a quick giveaway announcement from Dolcelatte's Facebook Page. Then surprisingly, my name was chosen out of the 20+ people who liked and shared their post that evening. I thought my slot would have been forfeited or given to somebody else already since I can't avail it that Saturday morning. Fortunately, they still allowed me to make a reschedule. Hooray!

Here's their Facebook private message to me:

We went to Dolcelatte last Sept. 22, 2013 Sunday morning to avail our breakfast set. Of course my PLUS ONE is none other than my hubby. He was surprised and thankful for this sumptuous treat.

Me and hubby dining our free gourmet breakfast/lunch treat from Dolcelatte.

Here's the breakfast set for the winner.

One thing that I noticed is that their pancakes are thick and heavy as compared to fast food serving. I realized that I didn't like blueberry on top of pancakes. I prefer syrup and butter.

Blueberry Pancakes - a stack of pancakes topped with blueberry compote. P175

Sorry but I'm not a fan of sardines but I love the fried sunny side-up eggs, as usual with any breakfast meal.

Spanish Salmon Sardines - homemade Norwegian salmon in olive oil served with two eggs and garlic rice. P355

Here's the breakfast set for the plus one. My hubby chose the Meat Lovers Omelette. I wasn't able to ask his comment but I think it was good.

Meat Lovers Omelette - three egg omelette with ground beef, ham and bacon served with toast. P255
Here's our choice of hot drinks, two orders of Dolce Latte. I love the heart-shaped design of the froth plus it comes with a biscotti. So nice!

Dolce Latte 8oz hot coffee. P128
When I computed for the total bill, we almost ate a whopping P1,041. Wow! If it weren't free, we won't eat this expensive. My hubby doesn't like me splurging on unnecessary expenses.
And since Dolcelatte is known for their croughnuts (croissant + doughnut), I decided to try one of their best sellers, the Valrhona Crunch. It was my first time to try it and was delightful indeed. By the way, we paid for this order.
Valrhona Crunch. P110. It has a chocolate filling inside.

I immediately fell in love with their place. The modern lighting & interior, the relaxing ambiance, the cleanliness of the utensils & the surrounding, friendly & courteous staff, and most especially the food quality & preparation are some of the reasons that makes me want to go back.

Here's a preview of Dolcelatte's dining ambiance. So peaceful and relaxing.
I've been wanting to try out their cakes but too expensive. I'll just wait for my birthday maybe or somebody else's birthday. :)
Here's Dolcelatte's menu and cakes by the counter.

I also find their flower centerpiece a perfect accent, adds up to the romantic-feel.

Here are some of Dolcelatte's mouth-watering cakes. Hope to get to try any of these on my birthday this year.
Dolcelatte is just along Quezon Avenue, just before Hi-Top Supermarket when you're coming from Manila.

This is Dolcelatte's entrance.
As my way of thanking Dolcelatte for the hearty and gourmet breakfast treat we had, I would like to invite you to visit their restaurant for a casual fine dining experience. This is a great place to bring your family to celebrate special occasions/gatherings, partners for a date, or hold your business/group meetings. You won't go wrong with the quality of food/pastry they serve.

    1. Thank you Mommy Lally, chamba lang! :) Go and try it, they're known for their croughnuts! Quite heavy lang on the pocket. hehe! :)

  3. Dolce Latte is near my office. And yeah, the food is great but on the expensive side. I like their croughnuts and I'm lucky to work near the resto because I can always walk in for their croughnuts :p

  4. This is in QC! I see this is the one na alanganin yung spot malapit sa underpass ng Quezon Ave. I saw that when our car passed by hehe. We will try that one day. I just wished na mas maaga sana sila mag open for breakfast. 9am is a bit late.
