Quiet and authentic. Wonderful spinach dip. Cabbage rolls are great. Also spinach pie. We’re coming back to try the rest of the menu. Very friendly staff.

My mother was Polish. I have lived in Europe. I have travelled a lot. The European food in this restaurant is as real and delicious as it gets. The owner-chef-waitress-hostess-bus boy seems to do it all and do it amazingly well with the help of one other woman. She knows the other patrons by name and remembers what they like to eat. It was like stepping back in time to a neighborhood restaurant in Bosnia.

I had the rouladen, a German beef dish, that I grew up eating and hadn't had it years. the rouladen at Café Bosna could have come out of my Mom's kitchen or a German restaurant. It comes with a lovely cabbage salad, mashed potatoes and pita bread. All were excellent. My husband had the mushroom ravioli and asked to substitute the green beans for the salad, which the owner did. He loves green beans and declared these to be the second best he ever had (first place belongs to a family member who grows, cans and cooks them for him). We shared the to-die-for baklava.

I gave the restaurant a 4 rating but the food was a 5 plus! This is a small restaurant, no more than seven tables. It is dated, nothing romantic. There was a TV in the back corner with a European Lawrence Welk kind of show playing in the background. The owner does not serve alcohol and there is $3 corkage fee, so we did not bother bringing our wine. It is not open Sunday - Tuesday. So the atmosphere brought the rating down. But would I go back? Absolutely!

This restaurant serves consistently great food for reasonable prices. The service is fast and the atmosphere is homey and casual. The owner is a Bosnian native and her menu reflects that! Chicken Paprikash, Spinach Pie, Beef Bourek, and so much more. Meals include fresh salad, home made salad dressings, gravies, and soups. The desserts, such as home made baklava, are excellent. This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant and I have eaten there many times.

This is a wonderful small family run restaurant serving authentic Bosnian food. Amazing stuffed grape leaves! The owner made several suggestions - all which turned to be great! What a treasure to the Hermitage area.

This is small time family owned and operated authentic Bosnian Restaurant, please keep on mind this is not a fancy restaurant at all but what they offer unique and delicious, they have fresh Burek and Cevabi which is ground meat with some spices. They also offer Baklava and Turkish coffee as well, owner is very friendly and hard working lady
