Slovenia borders the Alps, the Balkans, and the Mediterranean, and its cuisine looks to influences from many directions.
This snug cafe and creperie, coupled with an equally snug performance space downstairs, takes its design cues from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Its culinary cues come from Slovenia's neighbors Italy, via a roster of panini, and from Austria and Hungary, by way of palatschinken that here are simply called crepes. These are offered in both savory and sweet varieties; chestnut cream ($7) leans toward the latter, but it's no sugar rush. (Otherwise, Marlene might have made a moue of disapproval.) Still pending: a possible burek menu that would complete the culinary circle.
