The Gelato is good when fresh, but the food selection is a tad limited and largely generic up-scale bistro fare

We walked here after dinner nearby and it was worth the wait. The Lemon Mascarpone was divine and the 70% Chocolate was a chocolate lovers dream.

One of the best gelato places I've been to. They have both off-beat flavors (goat cheese) and classics (vanilla), all of which taste amazing. They have near-perfect texture and a lightness to them that's unmatched by any other place I've been. Atmosphere at the store is also quite nice. Highly recommended to anyone visiting.

This Hyde Park coffee joint is cozy and local with great strong coffee and a friendly staff. Beats Starbucks any day!

I used to drop by here in the past much more frequently as I was in the area more often. I went by the other day to get an expresso and it was OK. The place was empty but it seemed still nice and quaint. I have never had booze here, and stepped in for old times sake as it... More

I have been coming here for over 20 years and never, never been disappointed. We bus or walk here since live in the neighborhood. My regular orders: smoked salmon sandwich, Lox, happy hour beer. After dinner in downtown Austin- espresso and gelato. Atmosphere laid back, friendly wait staff, outdoor or indoor sitting. Neighborhood place so not very large. Dog friendly.

We went twice to Dolce Vita in our weekend in Austin. We had wine in the evening and coffee in the morning. We sat outside in their very nice patio. We enjoyed the wine (a little expensive) but we adored their coffee. The latte was heavenly and the biscote and croissants were delicious. The service was friendly and the whole... More

This place is so hip, it just got its beard caught in its accordion. Great food and coffee and the waitstaff/baristas are cool to.

It came recommended by a long-time friend and Austinite. It just works. I don't know what it is about 43rd and Duval but things just seem to work out. I barely tried the menu, ordered a croissant and a mineral water, sat down, and all was well. I love places where I just can't put my finger on it, but... More

This place offers teas and coffees, tasty sandwiches, and mouth-pleasing gelato, and it's all good. We come here often because it's reasonably priced for the quality of food served. Whether you sit inside or relax outside on their patio, the food and beverages here are sure to please.
