A cute floral boutique café with excellent dishes for the whole family

City Walk is fast becoming a go-to hub for all things foodie, and happily it’s also extremely family-friendly (both for dining as well as activities – hello, Hub Zero and Mattel Play! Town).

If you’re after something a little more quaint though, head to Jolie, a floral boutique café just out off the main drag.

The café is kitsch, but cute, with tea-shop-style white-washed furniture and, of course, plenty of fresh blooms. The flowery theme is strong: the ceiling is covered in silk roses, while your coffee will come with a fresh rose. Your meal will most likely contain edible flowers, too.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, there is a delightful menu sure to pique any diner’s interest. Parents, for a morning-time meal don’t miss the avocado on toast. Topped with slices of grilled halloumi, the avocado is guacamole-esque, and the crispy sourdough toast lying beneath is smothered in a tasty, tangy beetroot hummus. The lobster crêpes, meanwhile are decadent and delicious, with sizeable lobster chunks tossed in a light marie rose sauce.

Little diners are well catered for, too. Dishes include mac and cheese (pictured) and chicken nuggets and potato wedges, and all come with either a glass of juice or milk.

For a relaxed meal in a pretty setting, Jolie is très bon.
Open daily 9am-11pm. Unlicensed. City Walk, Al Safa (050 170 5657).

The bottom line
Family-friendly eatery, with an upbeat vibe and top-notch food.
