Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

We like to call Dolce Lab Cafè as a craft artistic patisserie, a small tea room, a living room, an intimate place where you can take a break and enjoy cakes (made with love). One day Sara and Francesca - in front of a large slice of apple and cinnamon pie - shared an idea, a project, a dream: to open the Dolce Lab Cafè.
