Our staff family has hit a rough patch. We promise to be back soon to serve you the best afternoon tea and fiery North African stews you can get your hands on in Ljubljana. Until then, we hope you’ll patronize our neighboring coffee house and restaurants and hold your loved ones tight.
We know. It’s the wearing o’ the green and suddenly everyone in the U.S., and more inexplicably, half of Slovenia becomes Irish for a day.
Don’t get me wrong, we have St. Patrick’s Day specials for afternoon tea. Including a chocolate Guinness cake and Twinnings Irish Breakfast tea. We also have some St. Gertrude day specials including Ivanka’s cat cupcakes and shortbread cookies. We’ll totally understand if you want to go hang out at the cat cafe instead though.
Happy Pust! While the kurentovanje are busy scaring away the dregs of this cold, snowy winter, we’ll have hot pretzels and krofi through Shrove Tuesday.
Jo’s on sabbatical for a bit, but our new head baker, Ivanka, is killing it in the kitchen and Fred can always be counted on for his fabulous soups that have their own power to chase away the cold and gray. Check the chalkboard outside when you get here or ask us. Fred’s whims are too unpredictable to add them to the menu.
We’re also defying the weather with outdoor heaters so you can sit in the courtyard to enjoy your tea and whatev. Still no smoking, because the courtyard is small.
And finally, open mics are back with the first official day of spring. Give me – Vesna – a shout if you or your band would like to sign up. We’re bringing Liar’s Knot back to kick things off and since they are in the studio, they’ve agreed to a series of dates through the end of the summer.
We’re closing early to celebrate. Swing by before 21:00 if you want to grab a cup of tea and a snack. And don’t say happy birthday to Jo. She just hates that.
(Those fab cups are available from Miss Havisham’s Curiosities.)
