Coffee & Cakes


Carrot cake
Rijeka In Your Pocket Archives

As in all Croatia, cafe culture rules in Rijeka. That means that the coffee is usually good. The usual espresso and cappuccino are available everywhere. A latte here is called a bijela kava (white coffee), and you can find instant coffee too.

Ice cream is a necessary condition for the continuation of the human race in summer. While you can buy the usual packaged ices (Ledo, with its teddy bear logo, is the Croatian brand we grew up with), don’t miss the homemade version in a slastičarnica. The water and milk here is fine, so there should be nothing to upset your tum.
Slastičarnice are temples to all things sweet. You can also eat cake and drink coffee, soft drinks or a fitting choice of alcohol.
