Dolce Amaro - Kamloops, BC

After shopping at Nature's Fare Market, I often round this corner and never knew there is a café tucked in here.

I happen to be walking past today clutching my pints of Liberté Méditerranée and eyeballed happy customers sipping on hot beverages. I always thought this corner was just a salon. Although, the Dolce Amaro café is connected to the spa salon next door, the café space is well defined.

Pumpkin Spice Latte ($3.65 regular or “traditional” size)

It’s that time of year when pumpkin spice is everywhere, so I opt for a pumpkin spiced latte. There’s not that much pumpkin spiciness, but it’s still a nice warm-up while waiting for our sandwiches.

It’s late in the day, but early for dinner. I need a little bite to hold me over.

Prosciutto and Brie Panino ($5.90)

The premade sandwiches are grilled on the Panini press and served warm with a small side of olives and feta. Pretty tasty for a grab n’ go kind of meal.

Verona Panino ($5.90)

Some slices of smoked chicken, melted asiago cheese, tomatoes and pesto round out the Verona. I thought DL chose this sandwich because of the namesake. Such great times were had in the fair city of Verona. My reminiscing about this Venetian city and corner gelaterias came to an abrupt halt… when DL informs me the reason for choosing the Verona sandwich is because “it has the least cheese.” Both these Panini are light sandwiches. Ingredients are few, but flavourful.

Dolce Amaro turns out to be a decent little place to grab a coffee and a small bite. Not bittersweet at all.

Those sandwiches look delicious! I'll have to try one next time I'm in the area. Have you been to The Art We Are cafe downtown? I'd love to see your take on that place. I'm addicted to their food. They have great healthy fare. The gluten free lasagna (made with brown rice noodles) is amazing and they have delicious soups and cornbread and a wide variety of baked goods.

Love this place!

You really should try their chai tea latte, it is by far the best that I have ever had. They also have a good selection of gluten free deserts and cookies!

Re: Delicious - Art We Are Cafe

Hi Anon,
Yes, I first became aware of Art We Are from Bumbling About Kamloops with A.L. Smithey, but of the times I've deeked in the the cafe it was only to grab a hot beverage. That would make for a very short post. So I've been holding off until I have a more substantial visit. Thanks for the reminder though, now that I think about it, I haven't been in for some time. Perhaps a visit is indeed in order!

Warunee's Thai Restaurant

This is a neat little place with a personalized touch. Oy is a great cook and does Thai home style cuisine. Needs a little TLC in decor, just get past that, it's nice and fresh.

Re: Warunee's Thai Restaurant

Hi Anon,
Would you believe I've been trying to eat at Warunee's for the past two years. TWO YEARS!
It's been closed for me on every attempt. After several times being met with locked doors, I thought that perhaps it was out of business. (Yes, it looked that closed to me.)

I know now, it is indeed open for business. But I've stop trying so damn hard to eat there. Do I sound frustrated? I figure if this is meant to happen, then one day the stars will align, and I'll roll up to Warunee's and find that swinging entrance will finally open easily and willingly.
