Review: Dolci Cafe
Impressive little place on Franklin Avenue in Garden City. It's a bakery and sandwich shop, with a number of interesting sandwiches and wraps. If you enter in the rear (snicker), where all the parking is, the door's by the tuxedo shop.
I've probably tried most of the sandwiches by now. All of them are good, though the chicken parm is just OK. It's better at pizza places. The bread is pretty good. Some sandwiches come as panini.
The only problem has been the roast beef sandwich with bacon, lettuce, and tomato. I call it the "Roast Beef Surprise" because it's always a surprise what ingredients they're going to forget. One time it was just roast beef, cheese, and mayonnaise.
On the other hand, I've only ordered it on Fridays. Fridays there seem to be a problem.
I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but hot secretary advises that the pastries (of which there are many) are tasty. I'm sure they don't make them in house since the place is so small. They also have gelato, which was sweet and creamy.
For you dudes, it always seems to be pretty girls working in there. I'm sure it's just a coincidence.
When I was there one day some guy came in just to buy a red bull and bottle of water. The cashier knew him by name, so I imagine he goes in there every day to buy an overpriced red bull and water just so he can drool over some girl who in reality couldn't give a shit about him. Good times.
The average price for sandwiches is around $7.00. Pretty cheap for lunch in Garden City.
