Dolcezza was one of my (Rachel's) first places to go when we moved to DC 2 years ago. One of my first and best friends here was a barista at the Dolcezza on 14th, so she made sure I knew about this cute spot right away. It is a gelato + coffee shop and as you can imagine their affogatos are seriously amazing. They have a few different locations around the district, but this one definitely holds a dear spot in my heart as I reflect on my first weeks in this new, busy city. We can at least rest assured, after a crazy election season and everything that came with it, that if DC does one thing right it's coffee!
