Traditional dessert house preferred by locals is a MUST.
La Casa De Los Dulces translates to The House of Sweets in English. You can see why this is every kids favorite spot in the colonial section of Santo Domingo. I used to visit all the time. It brought back so many memories to return and the owner was still there! He recognized my mom immediately.
This place only sells the very best and everything is fresh. It would be a mistake to go to the island and not make a stop here. If you are looking for “traditional” and want to eat what the locals love, then this is the place. Try the milk desserts that are filled with coconut or guava. They also have all kinds of treats made with caramel.
