Villa Spiza
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Kruziceva 3, Split; Tel.: +385 95 905 3879
A city dweller's paradise, this no-frills joint puts together a daily menu after a morning shopping trip to Spilt's Pazar food market. The cutlery and plates don't match, giving this little eatery its charm as you eat at the counter while observing the kitchen preparations. Keeping things simple, the beverage menu sticks to only one beer, wine, and juice option. Find this budget bistro down a narrow lane behind the Pjaca Square.
