Little Italy in Little Paris in Brisbane
La Dolce Vita is a charming, Italian cafe & restaurant in the trendy Park Road, known for great restaurants and high-end boutiques.
It's sometimes known as "that cafe with the eiffel tower" because despite being now an Italian place, it is still built around a replica of the eiffel tower and one of the roofs is a replica of the glass pyramid of The Louvre. It was formerly, as you may have guessed, a French cafe called Savoir Faire.
I always get a savoury breakfast when I'm out but today I had an unusual pancake craving - these are some of the best pancakes I have ever had! Delicious vanilla bean gelato topped thick fluffy pancakes, surrounded by a variety of berries. Super yum! Unfortunately I was halfway through before I thought to take a photo!
'Dolce', as its known to locals, is a popular spot for the friendly owner who likes to chat with customers and dish out life advice and the relaxed atmosphere - unlike many restaurants, you'll never feel pressured to leave once you've finished your meal. A little slice of Europe in the heart of Brisbane!
Note: It also goes off on soccer nights, especially during the soccer world cup - all of Park Road has a street party!
