Love everything about this charming cafe. It's right in the heart of Blackpool so easy to get to. The best thing about it is you feel like you are in italy. Lovely ambiance. Great menu selection. The ciabattas are out of this world. Presentation second to non. The coleslaw is the best I've had. Enjoyed lunch with my family so... More

This cafe used to be so busy and a great place to meet up with friends and family. Sadly it's gone down hill and most likely sink deeper. I was shocked when I was told I could not have my coffee in a paper cup to sit outside with by the new manageress who made me feel uncomfortable. I still... More

Had a quick stop off fancying a snack and a coffee. The bacon butty was nice and the coffee was even better, certainly one of the best coffees I have had for a while, it was strong with slight bitterness that was not overpowering but really gave great flavour. I would certainly go again and get food and coffee from... More

Called in this morning looking forward to a good breakfast. Sadly, we were told that they're only doing coffee's & sandwiches as the kitchen has now closed & they no longer do the range of meals once offered. On previous visits it has always been busy but looking at the crowds flocking into the cafe today - there was just... More

Used to be one of the best cafes in Blackpool (if we disregard the broken - for months - disabled toilet!) But it's becoming ordinary. Twice I have been encouraged in by the boards outside to find soups advertised not available. Today, no vegetarian choice at all. The redeeming factor, the staff always friendly if ever changing.

Thank John H
Management response:

Thanks for your review. I do hope you'll visit us again to see what we have to offer. We offer a full food menu and specials board, delicious cakes, great coffee and, as you said, always friendly staff. We are an independent coffee shop and don't like to be seen as "ordinary" so we've made some changes, for the better,... More

I just called Caffe Dolce to ask whether they have wifi, as I was planning on doing some work in there on Sunday. A young man answered the phone and said yes we have wifi, and I said ok, is it reliable or can it be a bit hit and miss? He said I don't know. And I said right... More

Cannot fault the cleanliness and most of the staff's friendliness. However, over the last 6 months the changes are extreme.... much higher prices for what you get, and less on the plate makes it extremely bad pricing for what you get. Most cakes are appallingly tacky, made elsewhere in some crappy bakery, and too pricey. Not good for the stomach.... More
