Kafana is a neighborhood Serbian restaurant where the menu consists of things like pork schnitzel, lamb shank, and chicken liver rolled in bacon. So, yes, the food is definitely on the heavier side, but it’s very good, and there are a bunch of non-meat things like cheese pie, mashed potatoes, and various salads. It’s great for a weeknight when you need to catch up with a friend, and it works well for a fun Friday night out that isn’t insanely expensive. Get a table in the dark, brick-walled dining room, order some Serbian wine, and eat something like a big patty of ground beef stuffed with cheese.
