Located at 2003A Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia 22301, the family-owned business focuses on providing excitement and variety in fine desserts, and is open for business at this time for customers wanting a full preview of the menu.

Owners Cookie and Peter offer, “Our artisans were hand-selected, and are respected and well-known professionals at their craft. While we take the quality of our products very seriously, we know how to satisfy even the sweetest sweet tooth, and work to create treats that add fun and excitement for kids and adults alike.”

Customers have the opportunity to sample the full array of what Dolce and Bean has to offer, including authentic French Macarons, Belgian chocolates, and authentic, slow churned gelato. The boutique has both gluten-free and vegan options, and if diners find themselves feeling drowsy from too many delicious sweets, the confectionary offers a pick-me- up in the form of premium coffee beverages and pure sugar cane fountain sodas.

Locals and visitors have the immediate opportunity to register for Grand Opening Giveaways either in-store or by “Liking” the Dolce and Bean Facebook page. Gift certificates will be given to drawing winners and a grand prize will be awarded to a single entrant. For the grand prize, “Good Eats and Sweet Treats,” Dolce and Bean will pay for dinner at a local restaurant and provide a guided dessert tour to one grand prize winner an three of his or her friends. Cookie remarks, “Just as with wine, every person has a taste profile when i comes to sweets. The contest winner and guests will be given a ‘taste-tour’ to learn more about their preferences, and how to pair various confections with different food and drink.”
