Marlette is one of those snug little spots where people settle for hours at a stretch, whether with friends or with a computer (yes, there's wifi). The tea is served piping hot by smiling waitresses, the tiled tables have an elegant wood finish and there's an abundant supply of cushions – you'd be forgiven for thinking you've stumbled into a home furnishing advert. Yet this isn't the whole story. Marlette started off producing organic cake ingredients and accompanying cookbooks, before branching out into coffee shops. Their roots are reflected in the range of dreamy cakes on display – we tried an excellent apple tart. Expect to pay for all the plushness: €4 for a latte, €4.50 for a homemade fruit juice or €6.50 for a soup.
