Latte e Miele opens doors at Bocage location
After some delay, popular Baton Rouge gelato spot Latte e Miele has opened the doors to its highly anticipated Bocage location (Map it!) this week, serving up creamy gelato and delicious coffee from slick new digs on Jefferson Highway. Owner Luca DiMartino says that while they're starting with just their basic coffee and gelato offerings, they should be putting out pastries by the end of the week—and within two weeks, they'll be serving their full menu. The plans to serve alcoholic drinks, branding the new location as a dessert-and-wine-bar, may take a little longer—the liquor license is still being approved—but DiMartino hopes that in the meantime, patrons will welcome the more central location.
