Le Petit Cafe, Trg francoske revolucije, Ljubljana

Bringing a flavour of Paris to Ljubljana, the longstanding Le Petit Cafe is something of an institution in Slovenia's capital. In the summer, the outdoor tables can be buzzing mid morning with breakfasters. Inside, the distressed decor and the vintage Gallic art on the walls conjures up a bygone era. While the hot food can be overcooked and the coffee a bit bland, the menu offers plenty of choice and is reasonably priced given the popularity of this distinguished establishment. Better still, the waiters have perfected the haughty gruffness you associate with cafes in the French capital.
