Life is "Dolce" at Missoula's Caffe Dolce

A Sunday drive to get some groceries turned into a mini road trip to Missoula. Looking for sustenance, we gathered intel from the Missoula Independent's "Best of 2009"  that guided us to Caffe Dolce for Sunday brunch.

Tucked away in one of Missoula's quiet older neighborhoods, C.D.'s impressive building welcomed us with soaring ceilings and handsomely finished hardwood tables. A case of smartly presented baked goods tempted us before we got a chance to look over the small yet thoughtful menu.

Being Sunday, brunch was offered and we chose two varieties of the egg dishes -- one with mushrooms, leeks, and gruyere, the other with olives, feta, and scallions. We also thoroughly enjoyed a side dish of potatoes with pancetta and gruyere. Everything was yummy, including the grilled baguette slice that rounded out our plates.

Always the fan of a properly poured latte, I smiled when the barista presented me with a perfectly textured latte in the requested 8 oz. size. 

Having no room in our bellies (nor our budget) to sample the lunch offerings, we will have to look forward to that meal on a return trip.

Dude-- that looks yummy, but when we have The Western, why would you drive to Missoula for brunch?

Just saying. . .

Teri wonders if you had to stand on your chair to get the full table of yumminess in your shot.
