Dolcipani opened in Old Swan Yard some 20 years ago but underwent a total refurbishment at the end of 2013. The cafe's new layout and decor is bright and cheerful and really suits the Sicilian-influenced dishes on offer. In good weather you can sit outside and enjoy a little bit of pavement cafe atmosphere, but if it's cold it's warm and welcoming inside. However, since the team from Dolcipani reached the regional final of ITV's Britain's Best Bakery competition it can get very busy, and rightly so. Giani's bread, pastries and cakes are truly delicious and have that home-made touch that is so missing from the big coffee shop chains. Today for lunch we had ham and mushroom crepes served in a creamy tomato sauce and with a small side salad. Lovely on a cold day! There is a full selection of savoury and sweet items on offer though and children are also well catered for. I'd very much recommend a visit.
