Connect the Dots

Dot 1: you.

Dot 2: the craving for shrimp gumbo followed by a heap of chocolate profiteroles.

Dot 3: Dorchester’s newest resto, Dot 2 Dot Cafe.

At this laid-back joint, proprietress Karen Henry-Garrett (a Le Cordon Bleu London alum) puts out an ever-changing lineup of made-from-scratch goodness, like brown sugar flapjacks and smoked salmon quiche. She also throws dessert nights every now and then.

There are 40 seats for prime people-watching, but no matter where you settle in for that morning combo of coffee and fresh pastries, you’re guaranteed free WiFi and a view of selected artwork supplied by local community collective, Dot Art.

It’s time you made the connection.

Dot 2 Dot Cafe, 1739 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester (617-436-2368 or dot2dotcafe.com).
