Coffee time in Croatia: the art of having coffee the Dalmatian way
Coffee, a dark drink of intense taste and scent is a favorite all around the world. Some drink it with milk, sugar, cream and possibilities are endless. People in Dalmatia region, just like the rest of the country, have a special relationship with it. Drinking coffee is the perfect excuse for doing nothing and doing everything.
Coffee in Dalmatia is used as a reason to get together with friends, enjoy it as a morning ritual, comment on recent events, read the newspaper, as a break from work or something else. Everything is easier with a cup of coffee! This great ritual is perfect for slowing down a little and take things easy, just like the locals always do.
In Dalmatia you should never drink your coffee fast; you should take your time and enjoy it, no matter whether you are alone or in good company. If you want to have your coffee and enjoy the sun at the same time, take a walk to the coast and visit one of the many cafes on the promenades all around Dalmatia.
If you get an invitation for coffee, be ready to find out why Dalmatians are always happy and relaxed and embrace the lifestyle. Be warned, coffee sometimes means beer as well!
If you are planning your vacation in Šibenik, there are a lot of cafes in the city center but the best choice is by the sea! The same goes for Zadar, villas in Trogir, Dubrovnik, Split and other towns along the coast. Don't forget the charms of Central Dalmatia either!
