Dolce – Not just Coffee

Chuck Stanko and George Carroll, the owners of Dolce Bakery and Coffee Shop, will be celebrating six years in business this January. They recently received an award for Outstanding Main Street Merchant from the Downtown Delaware Revitalization Conference put on by the Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO) .  Downtown Milford Inc. recognizes that Dolce has become a leader for downtown Milford businesses in shopping local, innovative retailing, and promotional campaigns.

 Dolce serves coffee and baked goods but it is their commitment to the community that has earned them the recognition they deserve.  Cookies for Megan, a benefit for a 14 year old girl who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, is just one of their efforts to reach out to those in the community.  As her family was understandably facing financial hardship Dolce and others from around the community did their part to help out.  “It was the huge turnout from the community that made our benefit successful” stated owner Chuck Stanko.  Dolce has also done their part with supporting the local schools and arts by giving a scholarship to a student from the Delaware Music School in Milford.  This community involvement contributes greatly to their success.

The personal interaction that is demonstrated from the minute the front door swings opens has created a business that is more than just a coffee shop. Chuck Stanko admits, “It is not about just having the best coffee in town, it is about knowing the people and giving them a personal, professional service.” This fall Dolce hopes to reintroduce their cheesecakes as they refocus on baked goods.  Owners Chuck and George are very optimistic about their future and the future of downtown Milford.  For them, a successful future comes in the form of hiring more employees and opening a full bakery once again. 

Dolce Bakery and Coffee Shop is located at 36 N. Walnut Street in downtown Milford.
