Café Sogni di Dolci
Café Sogni di Dolci began with its owner’s vision of opening an upscale coffeehouse and café, where St. Helena residents would gather over espresso, gelato and panini. Paul Kelley Architect was brought in to convert a very small, vacant space into a contemporary restaurant with an Italian flavor. With the café’s immediate success, the owner’s vision grew to include an evening environment with beer and wine, as well as a private dining area and expanded outdoor seating for intimate dining on select nights. Working again with R&R Design Studio’s interior designers, Kelley re-envisioned and doubled the café to include dining areas, a bar and an expanded kitchen, all while preserving a sense of space for the original coffee connoisseurs.
