What it is: Dulce is a new cafe where you can get sandwiches, gelato, pastries and more. We stopped by this afternoon before a little playing on the grass and in the fountains and sampled their sweet options. I tried the grapefruit sorbet while my son, of course, sampled the chocolate gelato. Our fellow Stir Crazy buddies tried a cupcake which was also delicious. We enjoyed our treats in the air conditioning at their tables. However, they also have some couches for relaxation while you eat and outdoor seating when it is just a bit cooler outside. Dulce also offers coffee and wireless.
What we liked: We love finally having a place to pick up some gelato in this part of town. We can easily combine it with a trip to Pineywood or Sutton Station itself like we did today. We could also stop by after a lovely dinner at Bocci or Nantucket Grill (if the large slices of cake at Nantucket don't hook you). The gelato prices were also some of the more reasonable we have seen at $2.50 for a small.
What we would change: The cafe is a bit small, so it might be hard to navigate a stroller or family when crowded (and we hope it gets crowded!), but for our group today it was just fine.
