Fui hace un mes justo y los croissants italianos, junto con el chocolate blanco y el churro como extra, la atención y conversión de la dueña... hicieron que fuese una experiencia chulísima.

Id y probad!

Cute little place

This little café run by a super friendly Italian lady is really sweet and authentic. We came for a coffee and croissant, which were good.
It was really nice chatting with the owner and she even gave us some tips on where we could have the best vegan dinner in Madrid.

A must visit in Madrid

I am very happy to be back to check the new dolce and vegana and it is just perfect. They offer a wide selection of sweet goods, and serve it in a very eye pleasing way. All the items are genuine italian and outstand the offer of other cafeterias. Definitively one of the best vegan places in Madrid.

Original note (gelato store):
It is a tiny place, some type of coffeshop/bakery with only "to go" goods. When I visited them, they had mostly ice cream and a few selection of sweets. The icecream was very good, however the selection was mainly limited to sorbets. I would like to have some piece of cake, too, but they were gone.

The place is OK as there is no vegan cafés in the neighbourhood, but I miss some more variety in the selection of sweets

Amazing Deserts

My girlfriend and I visited Dolce y Vegana multiple times. For breakfast, they have churros and other vegan pastries (mostly brought in from other bakeries) accompanied by inventive lattes. I wasn't overly impressed by this. We stopped in later for a sweet treat. Dessert is where this place really shines. They have a variety of cakes in a glass case as you walk in. I had a peanut butter and chocolate cake that I will never forget: so moist and fudgy. A little out of the way, but it may be the best dessert in the entire city.

Pros: Dessert

Cons: Location

Expensive & lack of options

The service was very friendly but unfortunately there were only two halves of cake to choose from (at 16h, when it opened on monday and one was just the gluten free version). Also one slice of cake plus one latter was 11€ - expensive.

I thought it was a place specialized in cakes, so was surprised to almost not find any there.

Excellent pastry and great coffee

I love a vegan pastry for breakfast. We walked down here to get take away but ended up sitting out the front. I had a large coffee with oat (and it was large) and a pastry with chocolate dripped on it. Both were really nice. My partner had the hot chocolate (just chocolate) and a plain croissant and he really enjoyed it. Lovely place to sit and a nice staff member. Very kind even though my Spanish is non existent.

Very pleasant place

Everything was delicious, had a sandwich with vegan ham, cheese, mayo and some green leaves for lunch. You can buy sweets and teas (I brought some as gifts from my trip). Also had a delicious croissant with cheese and ham to take away that I really enjoyed at the park. It’s right next to a park, as well.

Pros: Variety of sweet and savoury food, Meal options , Pleasant staff

For sure worth a visit if in the area

It felt good to finally be able to check out Dolce and vegana, after a couple failed attempts about three years ago. From what I understand it was initially more of an ice cream parlour but, as owner Ester explained, she has had to adapt and try different concepts along the way.
While we were waiting for our croissants to be ready, this super friendly gal began by allowing us to try some tart, which we found tasty. As the heat was starting to be excruciating, she gave us two small cartons of mineral water.. and on top of that, Ester ended up giving away a croissant with pistachio cream! Incredibly, all we had ordered was two croissants and a box of biscotti, at a value of 7.50 euro. A generous person, if there's ever been one.
It's a pity you're not allowed to enter the premises due to covid, and I guess I'd prefer to see more housemade stuff as opposed to imported, but either way, anyone can understand this is no way to run a business if it's going to make sense financially... so the least I could do is give Dolce and vegana an excellent review :)

A must for vegans

This place is a must if you are in Madrid. It is a bakery/ice cream shop completely vegan. They have croissants, cafés, awesome ice creams even in winter, and many more stuff, sometimes they even have pizza slices. It is in the centre of the city, in one of my favourite places, next to the river and very close to Palacio real. Even if all the food is honestly mouth watering what makes this place special is the owner, she's an Italian, very much involved in veganism and she is so sweet, everytime i go there she gives me some free samples to taste.

I love D&V

Stopped by with some friends for a coffee and a croissant, which where absolutely delicious and still hot from the oven. We also bought a couple of vegan panettone following the recommendations of the lady running the business. The pistachio one was ex-tra-or-di-na-ry. The place is really tiny (only one table), and due to covid-19 restrictions it can't be used anyway. BTW opening hours are imprecise so call ahead.

Pros: excellent vegan bakery, awesome Italian specialities, super nice staff

Cons: opening hours are imprecise - call ahead, VERY limited seating

Todo delicioso

Todo lo que pruebes te va a gustar, está todo riquísimo. Ojo que se le acaba la bollería, me he quedado sin palmeras alguna vez. Para eso llamas y le dices que te guardes las que quieras.
También vende productos, que aunque son un poco caros, están buenísimos y merece la pena, yo siempre me llevo algo.
Además Esther es encantadora, te da a probar de todo y no puede ser más atenta y cariñosa.

Pros: Mucha variedad, Todo riquísimo, Dueña encantadora

Cons: Se acaban los productos

Gochería pura y dura

Pasé un día por la mañana a conocer la tienda ya que queda cerca de mi casa y todavía no había tenido oportunidad de ir.
La chica que atendía muy agradable, me estuvo contando qué tal le estaba yendo ahora en estas circunstancias que nos acontecen.
Me compré un croissant de carbón activo y me aconsejó meterle crema de pistacho. Madre mía, que cosa más buena.
No sé ve de un color extremadamente apetitoso. Cualquiera que te viera comiendo algo negro al que le sale una pasta de color verde muy clarito miraría con una cara... pero en fin, las apariencias engañan, amigües. Así que procurad pasar a darles un poquillo de amor si podéis 💓

Dulces navideños caseros traídos de Italia

Descubrí está pequeña tienda buscando panettones veganos artesanales. Compramos uno buenísimo con arándanos en vez de pasas, super rico y nada pesado. Allí además pudimos tomar un chocolate caliente riquísimo y unos dulces muy ricos también. Además tiene pizzas, focaccias y más delicias.

Pros: Trato súper amable, productos italianos veganos
