Kafana's interior is nice and cute. Looks like it is only good thing there. The quality of food is low and the staff is nonprofessional.

The "pie" also known as pita or burek are a traditional ex-yugoslavian food- these were some of the most disappointing I ever tried. The phyllo dough was too thick and not baked enough. The cevapi were just OK, oversalted but not too dry.

Went to Kafana last night and had amazing time, what a great little cozy place. We shared a half of the menu . Cheese pie woooow, cevapi skinless little sausage out of this world, pork chop the pork chop OMG, sopska salad the best ....... everything and I mean everything was so good and so right this place is the must for anybody coming to NYC.

I have gone here several times since it first opened and brought back friends. The only place I have had possibly better Serbian food was in Belgrade, and I have had much worse in Belgrade as well. The atmosphere is great and the host and wait staff very friendly. It is small and get very crowded so plan ahead. A perfect place for a let lunch or early dinner on a weekend where you can feel relaxed without being overwhelmed by a crowd. Great wine list if you are looking for Balkan wines. Several that I have had in Serbia. Make sure you get some kaymak (cream cheese like spread) with your bread or for your meat!

Prebranac Sa Seljackom Kobasicom traditional baked beans with peasant sausage - tastes like a summer barbeque in the middle of winter. A bottle of wine, the stuffed sour cabbage. Great bread with the red pepper spread. Food that is authentic, modestly priced and a lovely warm place to enjoy it. I do not agree with the complaints about attitude here, even when we walk in without a resv. they are gracious & realistic abt trying to seat us. If they can't there are sincere apologies - - When we do get a table we are never rushed out even when its packed.

I went to Kafana couple of times since it opened just to get some Serbian food but every time I went I truly regretted it! The owner who is acting as a host at the same time is so rude; he makes the cool restaurant’s interior and decent Serbian food completely undesirable and I decided not to go back and not to give Kafana another chance. NY is not Balkan and rudeness does not fly, in the service industry business customer should feel welcomed and should be treated nicely.

Last week I was at Kafana with some friends. The host is very rude and unprofessional. The ambient of the place is cute since it is in a traditional Serbian style but bad food and rude staff is the reason why I will never go back. Skip it if you are in the area, there so many other places nearby.
