Let’s start with cake.
An Instagrammed cake nonetheless. Filter or no filter, you’d definitely eat it.
A cafe in Stockwell? In my mind, I envisioned small, budget, basic. Instead guests were greeted with chic, bare brick walls, contemporary lighting and some freaking delicious cakes and pasties. Dolcezza, is a traditional Italian sweet bakery, or ‘pasticceria’.
And now for more cake…
And some more…
And Aperol and prosecco, with a generous slice of orange.
The launch party sent off some very good signals for Dolcezza. There was a stance which lent towards detail, and intense, well-balanced flavours (my observations are based on the canapés and sweet selection they offered round at the event). From my experience on Thursday evening, I would make the effort to go there for a weekend occasion. If you live close by, lucky you.
Dolcezza is open from July 4th on Clapham Road, near Stockwell Tube station. It serves hand-made cakes, pastries, tarts and chocolates alongside Italian coffee. More substantial lunch bites include sandwiches, pizzette and salads. Dolcezza is open at 7.30am for breakfast until 6pm Monday – Friday and 9am – 5pm on Saturdays.
