Split definitely offers numerous places where you can get a cup of coffee. However, we were looking for those who, aside from having good coffee, didn’t mind letting us do some work while we were there.
All the coffee shops/bars on our list are located in the center of Split and are places we visited ourselves with the intent to do some work while drinking good coffee. To be helpful, we decided to share them with you. 🙂
So, let’s go on a work-friendly coffee-induced stroll around Split, shall we?!
D16 Coffee is a specialty coffee shop located in the Diocletian’s Palace. Their offer consists of various specialty coffee drinks as well as croissants and cookies. This summer they will also add sandwiches to their menu. Their two indoor spaces are not overly large, with several tables to sit at, but are both comfortable. The D16 team also has a larger table set up specifically with remote workers in mind which has power outlets close by for charging your devices.
Location: Dominisova 16
Galerija or Art Gallery Cafe Music Bar is located right next to the Gallery of Fine Arts. This means that yes – you can combine a visit to an art gallery with a few hours of work over good coffee or a relaxing drink. A bonus point is that the terrace offers a view of the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace and the Saint Domnius bell tower. They sometimes host live music, too.
Location: Ul. kralja Tomislava 15
kava2 is part of the kava family: there’s also kava37 in Hvar and the roastery kavaRO in Split. They offer specialty coffee and natural juices when it comes to drinks, as well as freshly baked croissants and cookies if you would like a snack. Their indoor seating area is not too large, but the terrace more than makes up for it! They are located outside of the Palace but are well worth a stroll to get a nice cup of coffee and do some work.
Location: Starčevićeva 2/1
Kazališna Kavana is located within the Croatian National Theater Split. It offers good coffee, as well as a variety of other beverages. It’s relatively new, so not even all the locals have discovered it yet. Therefore, it’s serene enough to get some work done without being disturbed. We’d say it’s well worth a visit, if for no other reason than to say you worked in a theater. However, it does offer much more than just that for any remote worker looking for a good spot for a (working) drink.
Location: Trg Gaje Bulata
A library jazz bar located inside the Diocletian palace in Split, near the Split City Museum in the birthplace of Marko Marulić, the father of Croatian literature. Marvlvs sticks to its theme, so prepare to be surrounded by books and mellow music. Their offer is varied, from coffee and tea to whisky and Guinness and anything in between. You will find several tables to sit at and, being a library bar, the atmosphere is mostly just right for doing some work while enjoying a drink or two.
Location: Papalićeva 4
Teak is one of the bars hidden within the Diocletian’s Palace. They have both indoor and outdoor seating areas and the offer consists of coffee (of course!), as well as a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The wifi was decent, and the area was relatively calm (aka free of wandering tourists). The coffee is excellent and accompanied by friendly service and a laid-back atmosphere of feeling like you’re in your living room because of the cozy interior design they have going on.
Location: Ul. Majstora Jurja 11
Of course, these are not the only spots in the city worth going to – there are plenty of other places as well!
However, we tried to focus on places where we could get a few hours of work done and these were our go-to spots. We can’t wait for you to discover yours, as well as everything else Split has to offer! 😀
