Time for another anniversary month post: This one is a big thanks to our vendors. It's important to us to find vendors who share our values, and we've been lucky to find so many. From left to right: Derek sells us local @gizmobrewworks beer and has led beer tastings for our staff, Grant is our business attorney and has been with us since we closed on La Vita Dolce, @compostnow provides us with all of our compostable cups and other supplies, Alisa provides local @sanghateahouse tea used in one of our favorite sorbettos, and Tyler is our wine rep from Empire who has helped us build out our wine selection, train staff, and host Wine Down Wednesday! Thank you to our vendors -- we couldn't do this without you! #loveourvendors #localbiz #vendorlove #lavitadolcecafe

@lavitadolcesv was already creating greatness before they officially opened! Happy 4 years! 🙌☕️🍺 #Repost @lavitadolcesv with @get_repost ・・・ We're keeping the 4 year anniversary posts with a post on #dolcenitro our cold brewed, nitrogen-infused iced coffee served on stout tap. For several months before we opened our doors in April 2015, we worked on perfecting a nitro coffee. So a month or so after we opened, we were ready to launch Dolce Nitro, bringing nitro coffee to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area for the first time. It was a hit from the beginning -- "Is it beer? Is it coffee?If it's black coffee, how is it so creamy!?" -- and is still our best selling drink in the spring and summer. During warm months, we brew a fresh big ol' batch of cold brew every day and have stocked a lot more kegs and nitro tanks! . . . #lavitadolcecafe #nitrocoffee #coldbrew #coldbrewnitro #coldbrewcoffee #coffeeontap #nitrocoldbrew #nitrogeninfusedcoldbrew #southernvillage #chapelhill

Today for our 4 year April anniversary post, we're taking it back to 2017 when we had our first #WineDownWednesday -- fitting as our 3rd Wine Down Wednesday series kick off next Wed, 4/10 at 5pm! This is @t_morgan11 our amazing wine rep who helped us build out our wine selection and who came almost every week through the spring and summer of 2017 to help at the event -- and who continued to come in 2018 and is helping again in 2019! Thank you Tyler, and THANK YOU to the community! You all have taken WDW and turned it into the weekly patio party we envisioned when we launched the event. It's not just about the wine, or the live music, or the discounts, or the beautiful weather on the patio. It's about bringing this community together to socialize, catch up with old friends, and meet new ones. This event has done so much to help us achieve our value of building connections and creating a better community, and we just love your smiling faces on our patio every week. Hope to see you out for our first WDW of 2019 on Wednesday! #lavitadolcecafe #southernvillage #community #loveourcommunity #winedown #sangria #wineoclock #redwine #winecocktails #chapelhill #patioparty #wine #winesampling
Today for our 4 year anniversary post we're giving a shout out to all of our customers. We've known many of you since the day we opened our doors and you warmly welcomed us to your community. To show how much we love you, here's a quote from one of our former employees, @keerahjoy "There are various moments throughout a normal shift that just bring me a weird sense of joy. I love it when people announce that it's their first time here or they are new to the neighborhood and the opportunity I then have to welcome them to the community. I know what it's like to be moving around from place to place and how encouraging it is to be met by a friendly face and a warm greeting in new, unfamiliar places." "I love watching the way people contemplate over their gelato samples; their faces contorting as if this was the most critical life decision they could be making. I know that there are probably much bigger issues that they are dealing with outside our walls, but I love that in that moment their sole focus is on gelato. I love that we are able to provide an escape from the every day and engage in 'the sweet life,' even for just moment." Thank you, customers, for giving us purpose, meaning, and support! . . . #lavitadolcecafe #loveourcustomers #customer ❤️ #businessanniversary
