Dolce Vita Bakery Cafe

July 30, 2013 – The Dolce Vita Bakery Café Head Baker Jennifer Mercado wants Gainesville to know their newly opened bakery on NW 34th St., in the NW adjacent to the Pizza Hut, plan is to provide Gainesville breakfast and lunchouters all the cronutsthey can eat.

"I made some today using croissants, Bavarian cream, and chocolate sauce, and they are really good," Jennifer said as she served the GLOB Master a plate of wonderful dessert pastries.

Dolce Vita has been in business over 4 years serving pastry, and sugary confections to the delight of the Union St. Downtown Farmers Market customers.

DolceVitaJenniferMallory"Rose Mercado, my Mother and I, have teamed up to give this full time bakery idea a try," Jennifer said, left in photo with bakery front counter specialist Mallory Hinkley.

Open Monday though Sat., Dolce Vita also serves a complete Lunch menu including sandwiches, salads, soup bakery pastries and . . . cronuts.

The cronut is a creation of Dominique Ansel's Bakery in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, as people jockey for a shot at buying cronuts, a croissant-doughnut hybrid that has seized the New York imagination like a must-see show.

    After reading about Cronuts in the GLOB the other day I had to head over and try them for myself. As soon as I walked in the door I saw them sitting in the showcase, just like in the picture! The smell was wonderful...and the Bavarian creme is scrumptious! They seemed to be getting a lot of business from the story in the GLOB.
