With a wealth of coffee shops and cafes right here in the city, it’s always exciting when a new place steps into the local scene and adds itself to the list of eateries to visit. So, today we’re diving head first into the independent bakery cafe of Dough & Dolce that made its debut last year in the neighbourhood of Taman Tun Dr Ismail (also known as Taman Tun or TTDI for short). 

P.S. Explore the the food haven of this neighborhood cafe with this list of delicious halal eateries in TTDI!

Situated on the second floor within the row of shop lots along Lorong Datuk Sulaiman 1, the place can be a little tricky to locate since the body of the cafe isn’t an obvious sight. Once you arrive the area, keep your eyes peeled for its entrance - a bright, yellow door with a rolling pin handle! 

Make your way up the stairs and be greeted with a bright and cosy dining space that’s wonderfully decorated with plants, cool light fixtures and an adorable neon sign by the front counter. Combined with the aroma of freshly baked sourdough bread (all made in-house!), it’s a perfect start to your visit here at Dough & Dolce. 

For an Insta-worthy shot, grab a seat by the wall of rolling pins and snap a cool photo. If you prefer having your meal while enjoying some sunshine, Dough and Dolce’s got you covered with an outdoor seating area.

While you can’t go wrong with any of the items off the menu, their Chipotle Grilled Cheese Sandwich which is a top-seller should definitely be one of your top choices. Sink your teeth into the delightfully crispy sourdough bread and let the cheesy goodness of mozzarella, cheddar and monterey jack pull you in. Served with roasted pepper and tomato soup on the side, dipping your sandwich into this hearty bowl gives it a well-balanced tang that elevates the meal to a whole other level ?

Keep the flavour train going by getting another classic favourite - Burrata Margherita Pizza. With a generous dollop of Buratta (fresh Italian cow milk cheese) in the middle, spread it out across the pizza and prepare to fall in love with this creation. From its crunchy, airy crust to the light taste of cheese complementing the rich tomato flavour, this dish is perfect down to the last bite. 

#HHWT Tip: If you're placing your order for the pizza at 11.30am, do note that you may have to wait a short while before it's made available. Have the friendly staff keep you updated on when the pizza will be ready for order ?

Still feeling hungry? The Smoked duck and sundried tomato aglio olio is sure to fill you up! Savour the aromatic taste of yummy pasta that comes with a little kick of spice. If the heat is starting to get to you, wash it down with a refreshing drink of pink lemonade. 

End your meal on a sweet note by getting some of their baked goods displayed in the cake display counter. Whether you choose to tuck into their brown butter raspberry friands, dark chocolate marble cheesecake or lemon yogurt loaf, you’re definitely in for a mouthwatering treat.
