La Dolce Vita

Question for the lot of you:

I am thinking about naming the shop La Dolce Vita, which is The Sweet Life in Italian. If you were unfamiliar with the shop, would you automatically assume we made Italian pastries only? That's not the goal, but I do like the way the words sound.

How about just Dolce? Does it make you think of haute couture fashion designers?

Yeah. I think La Dolce Vita and Dolce indicate 'Italian Sweets'. Maybe something Frenchy would be more appropo.

PastryBeast...

What an homage to our traditional family term of endearment...

Wilmette's not ready for all of that.

I would assume it would be Italian if that was the name....

How about Sugar Buzz? Sweet Shoppe?

Crumbs? Moist? hahahahhaha

I like Dolce, but how about a vague reference to your amazing orange cake that better make it onto your menu, at least in cupcake form.

The Big O Bakery (Cant' you just see the logo already?!)
-or-
Piece O'Cake

-or I like the name Beth's Bakery quite well too.

i like la dolce vita...maybe if you angled more on the fellini film of the same name you could add elements of celebrity or glamour or film, and avoid being misnomered as an "italian bakery."

what about: beth's bakery for people who can't bake good and wanna eat other good stuff too?

still excited for you!
