If you have read some of our other articles about two centre holidays in Split, you will know that Split is a city with a very relaxed atmosphere. We have written about its beautiful boulevard, the Riva, and why people love to come there to enjoy a cup of coffee.
Drinking coffee is about more than just coffee in Croatia, and Split is the perfect example of Croatia’s coffee culture. It can be quite challenging to find a seat on one of the many terraces in the old town, that just shows you how popular coffee drinking is. The people of Split all agree that if you can’t find the time to go for coffee with a friend, need to take step back and start enjoying the small things in life again. So if you decide to go for coffee somewhere in Split, do what the locals do: enjoy the moment, take your time and relax.
Split offers some amazing restaurants, and the best thing is that they stay true to their culinary traditions. That is why you will find mostly restaurants serving grilled meat and fish, pasta and risotto dishes and pizza in Split. This may sound rather limited, but just wait until you try them. With traditional wood ovens and the freshest ingredients that are guaranteed local, seasonal and biological, you can really taste the goodness. Go for a cozy tavern (konoba) if you can, not only will you find the best food here, but also the best atmosphere. We recommend Villa Spiza and Tavern Matejuska, where the locals like to come too!
