Vidilica is a cafe/bar on the edge of the wooded Marjan peninsula, at the north/west edge of the town centre. It has a large shaded terrace with fantastic views over the whole harbour, Diocletian's palace, the old and new towns, mountains and islands beyond.
Comfy chairs and sofas, good for photos.
From the Riva walk towards the little church near the start of the marina, Close to Marmontova and the red-arched Trg Republike. Take the small road to the right of the church (Sperun) and follow it up - the name changes to Senjska and it becomes steps that go straight to the cafe. Alternative steps lead back down from the other side of the terrace.
Tucked away in the middle of Split's old town, Cafe Nabeel is a curious but brilliant little local hangout where tourists also seem welcome. The kitchen rustles up hefty pies, best shared, and you can also fill up on toast. Late at night the cafe morphs into a lively night spot where the genial Nabeel can be seen showing off his 'bungra' dance moves - join in for a discount! Perhaps best of all is the decor - a bizarre mixture of local crafts and pieces of Star Wars Lego. An unmissable local oddity.
Head down Zadarska, off Narodni Trg central square in Split's old town.
