Ice-cream on a Hot Summer Evening


An ice-cream shop beckons


Dolce Vita

NStableCooling off in Dubrovnik

What better way to top off a great meal and to cool off on a hot summer evening—and it certainly was that!

After eating at Konoba Kamenice we wandered along Stradun (the main street) on the way back to our rooms. On one of the alleys leading up the hill, a sign beckoned to Nath and Sonya: Dolce Vita. That means the soft or sweet life, and apparently the local people (according to Eddie) swear that this is the best icecream in the whole city. The city has many rollicecream shops (sladoled), but this is the top one; they call this one an ‘ice saloon’ in English!

We got a small table and both Nath and Sonya said their icecream wrapped in a kind of crepe, served with whipped cream, was great.
