Romantic Cafés in Split

By 7 June 2013

Split’s old city walls exudes so much romance so we have picked out a few cafes where you can take your partner for a quiet moment in the spirit of love. 

Caffe Galerija

(Dominisova 9)

This cute café down a skew passageway in the palace has such a homely ambiance with deep flower-upholstered sofas and busy bookshelves; perhaps slightly inspired by English countryside interiors. The small space has intimate corners, perfect for an afternoon reading session or a private conversation with your love. Although it’s housed right next to a myriad of bustling café bars, Galerija is tucked away enough to keep out all the noise from its more.

Caffe Teak

(Majstora Jurja 11)

Oozing with history and charm, this teak-toned café sits against the original wall of Diocletian's Palace. This cosy café is divided into three parts and reveals many romantic corners…for ultimate privacy; there are hidden treasures below in a Roman basement dug into the wall where you can sneak in a kiss or more

Kavana Luxor

(Kraj Sv. Ivana 11)

Luxor on Peristil might be the most popular café for tourist but it doesn’t make it any less original or romantic. Luxor offers romance all year round; in summer, grab a seat on the ancient steps of the Emperor’s square and listen to acoustic tunes under the stars, or in wintertime, tuck yourself into a love seat in the back room at the very left. Glaze at the ceiling mural and listen to the pianist play his winter more about their music nights here.


Wine & Cheese Bar Paradox

(Poljana Tina Ujevica 2)

It may be a cliché but going on a wine and cheese date is definitely one of the most romantic suggestions to come up with and Paradox will serve the best of both. The warm interiors and stone exposed walls provide just the right scene for a romantic play. Grab a spot by the window and glaze at life passing by outside... Read more


Twins Café

(The first café on Riva from the Eastern end)

A spot at a bustling Riva café might not be your idea of romance but you might not know that Twins café has a balcony on the first floor with space for only two. This romantic belvedere provides the perfect spot for privacy as you watch the Adriatic horizon and busy life on Riva. If you want to sweeten your date even more, grab a French brioche in the bakery more


Žbirac Café

(Bačvice Beach)

This no-frill beach café on the sandy Bačvice beach provides a perfect vantage point to leaping Picigin players in the popular sandy bay. Absorb the sunshine with your love on the lower deck in a corner tucked away from the buzz. This cafe is really a local beach lions. Flip flops, legs up, and a coffee in hand defines the laid back vibe in Žbirac... all as you look over the sandy beach below with Picigin games animating the scene. Best is sunset, when the sky turns pink and the beach crowd starts going home.


Figa Food Bar
