Dining at Dolce

While dining at Dolce Cafe, my husband and I got into an interesting conversation. When you open a menu at a restaurant and the prices of the dishes are more expensive than average, are your expectations higher for the meal? Such was the case with Dolce Café. Entering the restaurant, you are a bit confused.

Vidlak’s Brookside Café, 15668 West Center Road, Mon-Sun 7:00AM – 1:00PM
