Dolce and Salato has opened!

Following my initial post on this place, Dolce and Salato (next to Chairman and Yip on Bunda st in Civic, Canberra) opened today for business! According to their website, Dolce and Salato is an Italian Pasticceria and will be open 8am - 8pm. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got a sneak peek before they fully opened. There is a lovely outside seating area, surrounded by green hedges - perfect for people-watching!

From what I can tell, it's an Italian pastry shop, selling Italian breads, pastries, desserts and other goodies!

And they're still selling gelato! (they used to own Gelato Joe's, which Dolce and Salato has now replaced)

But the thing I'm most excited about is the wood-fired oven in the back...

I love the look and feel of the place. So clean and...elegant, yet casual.

Pastries and gelato are available now but I can't wait to sample their menu when the full kitchen is open next week, especially the much anticipated "wood-fired breakfast"!
