Delicious, Fresh, & Affordable. Simply put, there is no better place to eat in the immediate area. Not a huge menu, more of an emphasis on their baked goods, which are first rate. Everything is homemade. Their signature swordfish tacos are a nice surprise, delicate chunks of fish simmered in a savory sauce, handmade tortillas, served with stellar pintos & rice, fresh guacamole & salsa, for about what you'd pay eating at Carl's Jr. They've got salads, pasta, spaghetti w/ homemade meatballs, sandwiches on fresh baguette. Top that off with homemade cookies, cupcakes, or gelati, well, enough said. Nice Euro feel; small, only a few tables. I recommend calling ahead for take out. Or just stop in - they open at 8am; cappuccino & croissant in the morning, hello. Their to-go packaging looks nice enough for a party, but to me, Dolce Isola is a afternoon lunch stop that happens to be above-average restaurant quality (& walking distance from my house).
The posh and star-studded Ivy restaurant opens a bakery farther south on Robertson to offer an affordable cure for Hamilton High-adjacent sweettooths..
Translating to "sweet island," this bright and airy confectionery offers one of the last stops for pastries and ice cream before the 10 freeway. The few small tables keep a quick turnaround of neighbors popping in for a cookie or lemon bar to-go. Fruit and chocolate-flavored gelati made in-house (and sans preservatives) serve as after-school snacks for high-school students, while cheap breakfasts can be created out of cinnamon toasts and scones. Lunchtime options include filling fare like giant meatball sandwiches and prosciutto and ricotta on baguettes.
