As in all of Croatia, cafe culture rules in Zadar. Weary sightseers take the weight off their feet, and for locals it's vital to have a chance to catch up with the day's gossip over a macchiato. That means the coffee is usually good. The usual espresso and cappuccino are available everywhere. A latte here is called a “bila kava” (white coffee), and you can increasingly find instant coffee too. Boo to globalisation!
