It’s still la dolce vita at this all-day Hyde Park cafe, which recently replaced a longtime bar and gelato shop. Start the day pulled up to the laminate counter with a cappuccino or the aptly named fluffy orange juice and gobble down a breakfast sandwich of Taylor Ham, egg, and cheese on a white kaiser roll (it comes with ketchup to keeps things legit). The allied forces running the spot include the masterminds behind local Italian favorites Juniper and Via 313, so be sure to try a pane tostato; we chose the lemony bright zucchini flecked with mint. Greet the evening with a Campari aperitif, a kale e tartufo salad, and the pork meatballs in marsala cream. A cruller was a bit soggy, but the almost-too-peppy eighties-heavy sound track kept things lively.
