Having lived on Hvar for 10 years, one gets to know the best places. The first port of call in Hvar Town, day or night, is Sidro.
By day, the locals will tell you that this is where you find the best coffee in town. By night, the mojitos are legendary.
Sidro (which means 'anchor' in Croatian) is a rare institution for two reasons. It is one of the few waterfront cafes which attract both locals and tourists, who intermingle well. And it is two attractions in one - by day, great coffee and people watching with probably the friendliest staff on the island, by night a top party destination - this was where Prince Harry popped in for a drink before THAT night in a nightclub swimming pool.
A great Hvar institution since 1977.
