Where good taste results in pleasurable experiences, evoking and creating memories. Our bistro serves breakfast, brunch and cocktails in a modern setting. Leave the hustle and bustle of Ljubljana's busy streets behind as you reach the crossroads of Petkovškovo bank and Usnjarska street, overlooking the river. Ek bistro is rough around the corners. The bricks may be exposed, but so is its heart.
