The Ramiz Sadiku Menza takes its name from the former use of this building as the canteen for the workers at the Ramiz Sadiku Socially-Owned Enterprise in Yugoslav times. After the war in Kosovo the building was no longer used for that and served, among other things, as a Jehovah’s Witness hall, but from 2019 this hip cafe has opened here, celebrating the previous identity of the building.
The workers canteen was not only a place to eat but also the place where a workers uprising began.
Now there’s a laid-back vibe with funky decor and design. The cafe frequently hosts art or music events or civil society gatherings and attracts this crowd of young Prishtinalinjte.
The menu showcases local products and eclectic mixes of international dishes in fusion with Kosovan ingredients. For example the breakfast menu includes free-range egg omelettes with artisanal cheese, American pancakes served with a walnut, honey, orange and cinnamon sauce, or cinnamon French toast with berries. Soups on offer include Kosovo’s iconic red peppers together with fennel. Pastas include Kosovo wild mushroom tagliatelle. There are also sandwiches, burgers, mezze, pastas, other mains, and desserts
