I already wrote about a decent local cuisine up here (check the Hiša domačih jedi POMF article). I wasn’t sure whether to present this small, almost hidden restaurant, thinking it might be too local, but I changed my mind. It is up to you to decide which one you like more.
Stadra, as it is named, is a little cozy canteen situated between Bikofe and Azil bookshop. It doesn’t have a glossy sign, so you might pass just right by without noticing it. But you should consider walking in. Daily it has up to 16 different tasty menus, of which approximately half are vegetarian, offering mostly everyday worker meals consisting of soup, main dish and salad. They have also a menu for people with celiac disease.
Almost all the time it is crowded with workers from the nearby University of Ljubljana and students studying in National and University Library, so sometimes it’s hard to get a seat. If you don’t have a problem sitting with total strangers beside you, speaking a language you probably don’t understand, even better. The specialty of the cafeteria is its kind and warm owner who does the job so quickly you don’t even notice him and with a lot of humor.
Language barriers when ordering food shouldn’t be a problem, as the owner knows the basics of English, because foreign students frequently visit the restaurant.
