Cool Off Near The Kingsley at Old Town Dolci Gelati Café

Summer is the season to enjoy all kinds of frozen treats. If you’re a big fan of ice cream, Old Town Dolci Gelati Cafe on North Fairfax Street is the place you need to be. Dolci Gelati specializes in creating artisanal gelato. This Italian-style ice cream is made by following an authentic, generations-old recipe. But Chef Gianluigi doesn’t stop there. He prides himself on using local ingredients and imaginative flavor profiles to create a thoroughly modern frozen dessert. 

Step up to the cooler to check out the variety of flavors; they’re all on display under glass. Pair a few scoops with a cup of locally roasted coffee. Hot or cold, it’s sure to give you a boost. Try an affogado, which pairs espresso with gelato. Or go extra decadent with one of the shakes. Check out the chalkboard to see what new concoction they’ll whip up for you. If you’re not in the mood for any of that, fear not. There are sandwiches and baked goods to try, too! 

All of this is served in a quiet and friendly environment, which offers the perfect respite from your busy day.
