Unique Eats: Dolce Coffee Shop & Sushi Bar

Update 2/4/2015 - Dolce Coffee is no longer in business

I love coffee shops, especially ones that are quaint with comfortable chairs and good coffee.  I recently spent at afternoon at Dolce Coffee.  It's a coffee shop and sushi bar, a weird combination right?  I thought so also.  I was pleasantly surprised by the place.  I spent several hours there, so I had an opportunity to try several items on the menu. The menu didn't have alot of options, which was fine because when you go to coffee shop, coffee is the most important item on the menu right? 

The first thing I tried was the turkey sandwich, it was so good!  The sandwich had a generous amount of turkey, avocado, bacon, garlic aioli and pepper jack cheese all on a ciabatta roll. At $6.75 I thought the price was alittle high for the size of the sandwich and it also didn't come with any sides items. However, the taste more than made up for the price, it was well worth it.

The coffee was good. I'm not really into fancy coffee drinks, a simple french roast with milk or vanilla flavored creamer works for me.  They offer a variety of roasted coffees, teas and frozen drinks. Your typical coffee shop.

The sushi was excellent.  I ordered a spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura roll that was made with shrimp tempura, mango and jalapenos. It was so good, the sweetness from the mango complemented the shrimp and jalapenos.

Overall, I really liked this place.  I won't be drinking coffee and eating sushi at the same time but I will definitely make this a regular spot for coffee or when I'm craving sushi.

Dolce Coffee is located at 705 E Market Street in Leesburg VA.
