The poetry of food

Those who enter Bistro Sonet expecting a fast, simple and familiar lunch menu – such as is offered elsewhere – will be pleasantly surprised since this bistro offers a different, varied, three-course lunch menu every day. And those who come for dinner expecting poetry at the table (a reference to the word ‘sonet’ (sonnet)), will instead find a chef getting creative in the kitchen. Those who come on foot, since Bistro Sonet is in the old town centre of Kranj, will leave with a spring in their step.

In short, Bistro’s sonet’s ‘poetry’ is such that it is different; comfort food prepared in a gourmet way for lunch, and restaurant-style fine food for dinner.

It certainly is a surprise! Tourists are surprised to find such a fine dining experience in the pleasant ambience of a bistro, while locals are surprised, and delighted, that they have somewhere they can walk to from home for a special experience. Those arriving by car get a code for the car park of the hotel. After breakfast the hotel lays its tables for ambitious three-course lunches and for dinner doesn’t reel off prose but rather ‘just’ offers great food.

Up until now Kranj’s honour has been saved by Gostilna Pr’ Matiček, which has an emphasis on wild game, as well as Brioni, which is also a cafe. Now, however, thanks to this new third addition, it’s no longer necessary to head just for Gorenjska’s countryside for a fine dining experience.
