Palena vs. Palena Cafe.

Hello all,

I have to admit, I'm a bit confused as to how Palena and Palena Cafe differ. Obviously one is a prix fixe or tasting while the other appears ALC, and from what I gather the dining areas are seperate, but in terms of menus it seems that most of what one can get at Palena can also be ordered at Palena Cafe and that they share the same kitchen, as well - to the point where local ratings and guides almost consider them the same place.

So I ask, what is the difference? Amuses? Mignardises? Bread Service? Desserts? Service in general?
