A sandwich, like a wallet, safely contains its precious contents, fits comfortably into a back pocket, and is rarely found by the police once it's been stolen. Chomp bread-bound wealth with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, salads, ice cream, and other treats at Vita Dolce in Tracy.
Vita Dolce charms with delectable eats and sugary morsels in a kid-embracing environment. Lunch-goers reap the bounty of bread by sinking teeth into sandwiched prey, whether chicken with tarragon ($7.50) or pastrami and swiss ($9), then submerge forks or overeager fingers in refreshing salads accenting tri-tip steak and blue cheese ($9.50) or mexican chicken ($8.50). Prawns rear their crustaceous heads at Vita Dolce on Fridays, with a Prawn Louie salad ($9.50) and a prawn sandwich ($8.50) rewarding all diners who long for the sea but don't speak cardinal directions.
Vita Dolce also scoops Mitchell's Ice Cream, picked up on a weekly basis from the Mission District. The staff slings luscious frozen dairy in a multitude of ever-changing flavors, including such inventive licks as mexican chocolate, black walnut, and cantaloupe.
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.
