Dolce Adriana on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale Is a Haven for Celiacs, Gluten-Free Eaters
Come to Papa.
Last year, we gave Ats-a-Pizza on Las Olas a Best Of for "Best Gluten-Free Eats." This was true at the time, but the shop owners' newest venture just might rival it.
That's right, the owners of Ats-a-Pizza have managed to one-up themselves in this one-sided venture for gluten-free greatness.
We're talking about Dolce Adriana. The café, which is right next door to Ats-a-Pizza, is a modest little place but boasts some big-time treats specifically for those with dietary needs.
Our trip into the store yielded five types of gluten-free baked goods -- all of them delicious. They also have sugar-free and vegan options as well as sugar-full and gluten-full (for the glutinous, of course).
The goods are made by Adriana, wife of Ats-a-Pizza's owner. While not celiac or even gluten-intolerant, Adriana was put on a gluten-free diet by her doctor after successfully battling breast cancer (go her!), and it seems like she's become somewhat of an expert on the diet.
