In the land of seafood, mixed meats, charcuteries & crusty breads, and all of the vegetables you can imagine, we usually leave our meals overly content, stuffed to the max, and wanting to refuse the sight of anymore food possibly coming our way…unless it’s dessert. If you’re in Split, you’re in trouble – here are some of the top dessert destinations you won’t want to miss.
Perivoj: Tea Mamut is the head pastry chef at Perivoj and holds a degree from the prestigious Culinary Institute in America, as if that doesn’t say enough already. Crafting concoctions such as citrus sponge cakes with strawberry cream and pistachio, American brownie cakes, and caramelized puffed pastry filled with nuts and olive oil – it’s safe to say this establishment is well worth a shot. Perivoj is located at Slavićeva ul. 44, 21000, Split.

Dvor: Sister restaurant to Perivoj, Dvor is a shoo-in for desserts due to the relation. Here you can find Belgian chocolate lava cakes oozing with dark and white chocolates, or an even simpler dessert with biscuits, figs, and ice cream. The dessert presentations are worth a visit alone. Dvor is located at Put Firula 14, 21000, Split.
