New Denman Coffee Shop: The Dulcinea – Updated

Last modified on December 10th, 2008

My friend Stacey just sent me a message on Facebook and told me that her family just opened a new coffee shop on Denman called Dulcinea. Apparently they have really great Spanish Coffee, as well as some great chocolate drinks. Here’s a little blurb on the internet about them from last month:

After my favorite chocolate cafe, Koko, closed it’s doors earlier this year – I was heartbroken. To my relief, it finally reopened on October 1st. Well, not exactly – it’s still a chocolate cafe in the same location – but the new place has different owners, a different theme, and a different name: The Dulcinea. I no longer have access to Koko’s amazing premier chocolates, but something wonderful has taken its place. This new chocolate cafe has a strong Spanish streak running through it and staff that know what they’re doing when it comes to chocolate.

The Dulcinea offers a variety of desserts, espressos, spanish chocolate drinks and a selection of tapas. The prices at first glance may seem a little steep – but are actually reasonable considering the excellent quality of their offerings. […]

The service is quick and uber-polite. The staff is trying real hard to iron out the little unexpected problems with a new business. The kids running the place and the Spanish flair certainly cement Dulcinea’s early reputation already making them more lively than surrounding shops. Hopefully they’ll flourish.

Their website is still a work in progress, but it looks like it’s coming along. If you’re in the area, stop by and tell them Duane sent you!

Updated – I got a list of good, tasty stuff they have there:

  • Dulcinea Chocolate Cafe
  • Spanish delights
  • Desserts and Tapas
  • Spanish Chocolate and Coffees
  • Small Indulgences

604 689-2699

Mention Duane and receive a 1528 solo drink! I don’t know what that is, but sounds good!

  1. I managed to get there in October shortly after it opened and I can vouch that it’s a great chocolate place. I think I had a banana flavoured hot chocolate. Good place to go for dessert if you’re in the neighbourhood.

    I think chocoatl in yaletown is still my favorite hot chocolate place though.
