It seems that just a few years ago it was nearly impossible to get a good breakfast in Split. Sure we had omelettes and basic eggs, but a real, hearty breakfast was hard to come by. Today, it is hard to believe the amount of breakfast options we have in the city, many serving their takes on classic egg dishes and fan favorites like French toast and pancakes. Because we don’t want anyone to go hungry before lunch time, here are some great breakfast options for you to frequent during your early mornings in Split.
Chops Grill: This steak and seafood restaurant is not only the leader in lunch and dinner, but they are pulling out all the stops for their breakfast options as well. Offering up everything from a classic continental breakfast, American pancakes, to a an “American Cowboy” (eggs your way served with goat cheese, vegetables, and ham with a croissant, crispy bacon and a beverage) this is a definite early morning stop to fight that pre-lunch hunger.
