Breakfast in Next-Apache

Located Panenska Street, No. 28, is a great and welcoming café, where you can serve appetizers and pastry dishes in a relaxed and in a company countless books that are still on shelves.
It is impossible not to notice the imposing building located in the western hill of the old part of Bratislava. Some parts date back to the 15th century and architectural style has remained largely unchanged since then (like a sand castle). Unfortunately, the eternal enemy castles, fire, turned into ruins in 1811 and restoration was completed only in the mid 50”, although in a more modern and lighter in color than they would like some. And if that does not convince you, then, deserves to climb the hill (if you have the energy needed) even for panoramic image of the entire city.

It seems that this is a meeting place for the older ladies who get together to chatting about their husbands or even any of the friends. In terms of food you can expect unusual things. In a typical day you can find there dumplings stuffed with bacon and goat cheese, which here is called “halusky”. Worth trying this place if you say that you tested cuisine.
