     The Del Ray Business Association is thrilled to welcome Dolce and Bean Confectionary Boutique to Mount Vernon Avenue!  The family-owned dessert shop will host its Mayoral ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, May 6 at 4:30pm, with sampling throughout the day. Dolce and Bean is located at 2003A Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.

     "Our artisans were hand-selected, and are respected and well-known professionals at their craft," said Dolce and Bean owner Cookie Seifu. "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.”

    As part of the grand opening celebration, Dolce and Bean will hold a drawing for gift certificates plus a “Good Eats and Sweet Treats” grand prize -- dinner at a four four to a Del Ray restaurant plus a guided dessert tour.  

    “Just as with wine, every person has a taste profile when it comes to sweets," said Seifu. "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.”

    To enter the drawing, register in-store, or by “liking” the Dolce and Bean Facebook page.  

     Dolce and Bean focuses on providing excitement and variety in fine desserts, including authentic French Macarons, Belgian chocolates, and authentic, slow churned gelato. The boutique has both gluten-free and vegan options, plus premium coffee beverages and pure sugar cane fountain sodas. The Dolce and Bean Confectionary Boutique offers catering for special events and gatherings, as well as special occasion gift baskets. 

   “We are very excited to be doing business in Alexandria, and serving the Del Rey area, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods. We hope to be providing an exceptional dessert experience to the community for years to come, but especially to mothers this May 14th," said Seifu.

   From Neuhaus Beligian chocolates, to authentic French pastries, indulgent gelato and coffee, Dolce and Bean is a one- stop shop for an immediate sweet delight, that perfect gift, or a trusted partner to cater and enhance your next event or gathering.  

    Dolce and Bean is located at 2003A Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.  For more information, visit dolceandbean.com.
