Your guide to morning bites
July 13, 2022 – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but that hasn’t always been the case in Split. That is, until recently. A preview of breakfast in Split 2022.
As someone who grew up in Southern California with breakfast burritos, loaded scrambles, crispy hash browns, benny eggs and an endless display of pancakes from the local restaurant, breakfast has always been my favorite meal. But on my visits to Croatia over the past 20 years before moving here 7 years ago, breakfast was hardly an unforgettable meal.
In 1996, I remember mornings when I ate oversized pieces of crusty bread with butter and marmalade. In the early 2000s, the saltiest burek was sought to cure a hangover in Hvar or the restaurant was forced to serve chips with the only ham and cheese omelet on the menu, if only to try to imitate the breakfasts we were used to. . But the selection, overall, was nothing out of the ordinary.
The story today, however, is quite different, and Split in particular has flourished as a breakfast and brunch spot over the past few years. As a result, this summer is better than ever.
