Two sisters opened Vita Dolce in 2009, wanting to share the sentiment that “life is sweet” with the community they were born and raised in. To that end, they now bake 11 varietals of cookies daily, scoop Mitchell’s ice cream into desperately waiting cones, and pierce sticks into cake pops. They expand their repertoire beyond simple sugary feats, pressing turkey-havarti-pesto paninis and assembling tri-tip salads for hungry lunch goers as well.
Michelle's bustling bakers handcraft a variety of sweet and savory breads from seasonal ingredients, sourced from area farmers' markets. Handpick a preservative-free loaf ($8.50) or half-loaf ($5.50) in one of more than 25 flavors, from traditional options, including zucchini walnut and lemon, to zanier selections, such as papaya, pear, and jalapeno-cheese cornbread. Michelle's crew also bakes a line of vegan breads, as well as gluten- and sugar-free constructs made with rice or tapioca flour and Splenda. Sway sweet teeth with a saccharine medley of cookies and brownies ($2.50–$3.50 each), or teach a precocious terrier basic fractions with a pumpkin or sweet-potato pie ($10).
