Open for Business: La Dolce Cafe & Bakehouse, 461 Fifth Avenue

The bakery that's been in the works in the space last occupied by Lily's Gift Shop, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 10th Street, opened for business late last week after a very quick buildout. It's an Italian-style bakery, owned by Malaysians by way of Sydney, Australia, where the original La Dolce is (this one is the first U.S. outpost).


It's a fairly run-of-the-mill bakery and cafe, with a solid, if small, selection of cakes, tarts, pies, and other baked goods, including biscotti and croissants, all made in-house. Coffee and tea are also for sale (a regular coffee is $1.50), and gelato will be offered soon, along with an expanded baked goods selection.

Aside from the bakery items, there are a few salads and sandwiches on the menu as well. They're pretty straightforward, with deli meats, cheeses, and spreads on your choice of focaccia, ciabatta, or Turkish bread, for $5.50. For breakfast, you can get Turkish toast or raisin toast with jam, honey, peanut butter, or cinnamon, for $3.50. 


La Dolce may not be blazing any new trails in the culinary space, but it's clear that a lot of work goes into each product they offer, and those desserts look pretty tasty. And when was the last time a Sydney-based company decided to come over and open up in the Slope?

La Dolce Cafe and Bakehouse, 461 Fifth Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 718-832-8282.

Someone should give then the recipe for Tiramisu Cake.

What they are selling for tiramisu cake is an ordinary yellow cake with butter filling.
