Dairy free options as well
One of the key items on the menu that you will get at Dolce Mama’s is their unique dairy-free ice cream options.

And, it is all as fresh as anything!
What makes Dolce Mama’s stand out in the crowd is the fact that they pay heed to ensuring freshness in every scoop and cone that they service to their customers. In the words of Jenna LoSciuto-Olivas, the owner of Dolce Mama’s, ”We make our ice cream week to week using the small two-gallon machine. Ice cream is mixed fresh to take care of the diminishing supply. We are happy with it, and don’t intend to go large scale as of now as we can stay fresh as long as we stay small.”
She further adds, “Fresh, local mindfulness is key to Dolce Mama’s. And, we don’t want to lose it.” Locally produced with local fruits, locally sourced ingredients and lots of love – this is what makes Dolce Mama’s perhaps the freshest and most mouth-watering ice cream in all of Salem, and maybe even Oregon!
