During the Victorian era, cookies were known as "sweet biscuits" and were eaten only by paupers, who were forced to substitute rich, hearty tallow with inexpensive sugar. Relish this sweet substitution with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of baked goods at Dolci Dessert Bakery and Gelateria on Grant Street.
Dolci is an Italian dessert bakery dishing up a scrumptious selection of freshly baked cakes, cookies, and breads, in addition to tongue-tingling tarts and a variety of gelato. Sink sweet teeth into a zesty lemon curd cake (8", $31.50) or indulge globetrotting taste buds with mexican chocolate ganache ($11.50 for mini cake) and italian ciabatta bread. Cherry-berry and apple-caramel tarts will curb fruit cravings (9", $20.59), while biscotti packs both a savory crunch and an edible baton for maestros on the go ($11.50 for 1 lb.). Dolci also offers a variety of nature-friendly treats, such as vegan chocolate-chip cookies ($2.75 each). The in-store café lets visitors complement their baked goods with drinks and effusive declarations of love, or skip the sweets for savory soups.
