Cafe Dolce


Welcome to Cafe Dolce! I would like to start off by thanking all of you that have been in to visit and who have supported me since we opened for business in 2006. I look forward to meeting all of you when you stop in for coffee, lunch or a business meeting in the near future. Your continued support helps us to live up to our reputation of being one of the 'downtown survivors.'~ Sara Owen

An alumni of St. Joseph and Platt High Schools, Sara Owen has been a part of the many changes to downtown Meriden. After receiving her bachelor's degree in business management from Central Connecticut State University her dream was to start her own business. After overcoming initial obstacles opportunity knocked and Sara embarked on the scariest and most rewarding journey of her life thus far.

In March of 2006 Cafe Dolce opened its doors for business. Nearly ten years later Sara's cafe has become a staple of downtown Meriden. Cafe Dolce is a team player and supports many local community events and charities including...

I also would like to thank all of my customers. Without you I most certainly would not be where I am today and defintely would not be able to get through the difficult times and celebrate the good times. I look forward to meeting many new customers and making one of my signature coffees for you.   Here's to you! ~ Cheers, Sara Owen
