Q: Hi. I recently visited Dolci and Joe's and noticed that they now have waiters and waitresses. When did this happen and why? — Dawn from Wichita
A: Dawn, it's funny you should ask that because I just reported on my dining blog last week (blogs.kansas.com/dining) that Dolci & Joes (3425 E. Douglas) switched a couple of weeks ago from a standing-in-line to order system and introduced table service. The move has cut down on the amount of time customers spend in line during the busy lunch hour, managers said, and hurried diners can get in and out more quickly. Dolci & Joes also recently started a “lunchbox” special that offers customers a half sandwich and choice of soup or house salad for $6.99. In recent months, the restaurant also has introduced a breakfast menu that includes items such as breakfast burritos. In the next couple of weeks, the restaurant plans to offer a more detailed breakfast menu plus a dinner menu, which will include items such as steaks, chops and chicken. I’ll post an update when that menu’s ready to go. Dolci & Joe’s is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Breakfast is served from 7 to 11 a.m., and when dinner starts, it’ll be offered from 5 to 9 p.m. For more details, call 316-613-3515.
