A great place to sit and watch people on a lovely sunny day. We had coffee here most mornings and it was delightful. Coffee very reasonably priced but I wish that they served it in bigger cups.

It is no wonder that Croatia is growing in popularity as a tourist destination. With friendly welcoming residents, broad beaches and great cuisine. It is a place to be.
