Dolcezza Gelato & Coffee

1704 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20009, USA

Inspired by Argentinean gelaterías, the husband-wife founders of Dolcezza introduced artisanal gelato to the District back in 2004 and have been opening new locations ever since. Using seasonal ingredients, they craft upwards of 300 flavors each year. From classics like Stracciatella and Salted Caramel to more unique combinations like Lemon Opal Basil and Avocado Honey Lime, each scoop of flavor is delicate yet bold. You can even tour the chain’s Factory and Coffee Lab, where the hands-on process of infusing and spinning takes place. Their small-batches of gelatos and sorbettos are distributed to their storefronts, farmers’ market stands, and pop-ups throughout the city for daily enjoyment. Top off the experience with a Stumptown espresso drink or a pint of gelato to take home.
