Dolcezza is a gelato & coffee shop serving daily-made gelato & expertly crafted coffee drinks in 5 shops and several downtown farmers’ markets. Dolcezza produces small batches of hand-made gelato every morning in its expansive Gelato Factory & Coffee Lab in the Union Market neighborhood, using the best available ingredients: local fruits, herbs, nuts, cheese, milk and cream. Combining old-world methods and a curiosity for innovation. Most ingredients are grown locally by its farmer friends, who hand-pick their produce at peak ripeness before bringing it to the market the next day. Citrus is squeezed one by one, chocolate is melted, herbs are infused, nuts are ground and spices are roasted, all by hand, every step of the way.
