It is an incredibly sad thing that La Dolce Via only serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. But let's stop yearning for what we can't have and learn to appreciate the good things in life. Like that for two days a week, we get to eat brunch at La Dolce Via! In the past year, owner Marcia Sindel has expanded the café's brunch offerings. Now, in addition to egg scrambles and biscuits and gravy there are waffles and a wider selection of pancakes. La Dolce Via has always done a splendid job with its pancakes, both the plain and the blueberry, but this summer Sindel has outdone herself, incorporating fresh fruit and syrup: strawberries, blackberries, even peaches, depending on what's in season. The recipe was Sindel's great-grandmother's, who was quite obviously a better pancake maker than your great-grandma, and Sindel does her proud.
