Imagine a cross between a My Little Pony merchandise shop and a Swedish design store, and you'll get something like Jolideli. The café is decorated with pink bedroom lamps, hot-pink napkins and a food bar with tiles the colour of Parma Violets – yet still manages to be more stylish than tacky. Despite (or because of?) the pastel overload, Jolideli reels in the yummy mummies and suits from the nearby arty neighbourhoods and can draw quite a crowd at lunchtime. Lunch menus come in at €13 or €15 for a sandwich/salad, dessert and coffee; pricey, granted, but the portions are generous and there’s a good selection of different fresh breads, bagels and hot or cold options. A quirky feature is a projector that beams films from the ’40s or ’50s onto the wall – a nice distraction for lone lunchers.
