“Basta” means garden in Serbian. And this one is a garden of stone. But it’s not just another new café with some playlist on repeat. When I saw it for the first time, I had a feeling of “knowing this place from before” which I usually feel when a place has some “soul”. This brand new outdoor spot is situated in an old backyard in a boundary area between the Savamala and the Kosancicev Venac quarters.
I like it because it’s hidden, has a great selection of white wines and a great crowd. And they’ve just introduced periodical live jazz nights. Every evening there’s a combination of a particular music and a drink on promotion. The place is relatively small and gets crowded easily (reservations are possible). If you get lost wandering through Savamala area, just find the building No.43 in Karadjordjeva Street and follow the stairs next to it. On top of the stairs, this garden is hiding.
