Approach the whitewashed exterior with the extruding wooden corner bay. There is an outdoor dining area that is fenced off for privacy, but the interior has some wonderfully intimate seating nooks where you can get a great view of the surrounding city. Guests were very anxious to get the tables with the better views, and they would be reluctant to leave them once they became entrenched in them. Our view was not bad, but we were a tad disappointed that we did not do a bit better in this department.
We arrived on a drearily rainy day, so I was looking to order something to warm my bones. My dinner was the reasonably priced and appropriately named Bosnian Pot, a quaint lamb and vegetable stew delivered in the self-titled pot. Also called "bosanski lonac" in the native language, this is a typical and hearty entree. Apparently these little foil-topped kegs are used to heat up the meaty mix. The serving is a bit small, so sop up the insides of the pot with the bread. My friend enjoyed a juniper juice, a little-known fruit that is subtly sweet. The lemonade is less exotic but nevertheless refreshing.
The restroom is inexplicably muggy, so try not to spend too much time. When you are leaving, you may be tempted to purchase a sweet from the glass displays on the main level.
