Your 2019 Guide to Best Breakfast and Brunch in Split

Daniela Rogulj


September 26, 2019 – Split’s breakfast and brunch scene are thriving in 2019. A guide to the best places to begin your morning. 

The way our mornings begin usually depict precisely how the rest of our day will look. For example, if we ‘wake up on the wrong side of the bed’, we’re grumpy, irritable, and usually, have no reason for being so. But it always doesn’t have to be that way. 

Today, we’re bringing you a list of reasons good enough to make you jump out of bed buzzing in the morning – and they come in the form of the best breakfast and brunch spots in Split this year. 


New to Split this year, Fig quickly became one of the hottest locations in the city center. Popular for their California toast, vegetarian breakfast burrito, and spicy eggs, Fig also offers breakfast cocktails like Bloody Marys, and prides themselves on their baked goods made in-house, from fig scones to New York-style cheesecake. Did we mention they’re located just around the corner from Peristyle inside the ancient Augubio Palace?


Chops Grill 

Split’s favorite steakhouse has so much more to offer than beef – and breakfast is one of them. Blended smoothies boasting almond butter and berries or super greens is a foolproof way to kick off your morning at Chops, that is, before you dive into the rest of the menu. Veggie omelets, poached eggs served with avocado or Caprese-style, breakfast tortillas, American pancakes and the classic Chops Breakfast served up with grilled sausages, scrambled eggs, pancetta, and mini tomatoes – how could one go wrong?

Zinfandel Food & Wine Bar

A wine bar that also serves brunch? Sign us up! Known for their extensive selection of Croatian wine and stellar charcuterie platters, Zindanfel is king at brunch, too. If you had one glass too many the night before, make the morning right with their eggs Benedict on an English muffin or brunch baguette with eggs, ham, rocket, and aioli. And you only need to get there before 2 pm!

Ciri Biri Bela 

Farmer’s omelets? Check.  Eggs Benedict? Check. And a world of fixings for you to choose? Double-check! Ciri Biri Bela is another showstopper this summer, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only is it guaranteed organic, but you can choose from the best of everything – like NY bagels to muesli, Croatian pancakes to donuts, French toast, banana bread or apple strudel, and, of course, a plethora of egg dishes, smoked meat and cheese platters, fruit salads, and fresh juices and smoothies. And this is just breakfast. Check out their brunch menu here


Kat’s Kitchen (and Kat’s Grab ’n’ Go)

Riding the health kick wave, Kat’s opened last year to ensure the people of Split had the most colorful and clean creations at their disposal. Oven-baked organic omelets, an egg white omelet with smoked salmon, warm oatmeal cooked in coconut milk, homemade granola, and sweet and savory croissants are just some of what’s on offer at Kat’s. And if you need a healthy fix quick, try Kat’s central Grab ’n’ Go!

Zeru Cafe & Wine Bar

Because all wine bars should serve breakfast, right? Zeru’s breakfast menu consists of banana and almond French toast, quiche, omelets, ham and eggs, homemade smoothies, and fluffy croissants. Not only are they one of the most affordable breakfast spots in town, but you can also take your breakfast to go!



Located super central in Split’s Pjaca, Bepa believes that the best things in life are sweet, which is exhibited in their homemade waffles that can be prepared in three different ways. But if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, Bepa boasts a classic English breakfast, poached eggs with avocado, an omelet with cream cheese, baby spinach and leek, and a potato egg hash. 

Brasserie on 7

One of the breakfast and brunch pioneers in Split is Brasserie on 7, and if you’ve walked down the Split Riva, chances are, you know it well. From their Big Breakfast which boasts poached eggs, hollandaise, ham, sausage and sourdough bread, to cinnamon ricotta French toast, egg white omelettes, classic eggs Benedict to a superfood favorites chia pudding and açai bowls, B7 goes one step above by offering a range of 100% fresh juices (and you could add bubbles, too). 


Corto Maltese Freestyle Food

This funky and fun foodie favorite serves breakfast until noon, and we hear the cinnamon rolls are divine. You can also try scrambled eggs served with smoked salmon or sirloin, açai bowls, scrambled eggs on toast, chia pots, and fresh juices. We promise you’ll enjoy the quirky names for menu items, too. 


If you’re in the Varos area and need a quick breakfast fix – this is where you’ll want to go. While Perpetuum offers nothing too fancy, you’ll be more than satisfied by hearty egg dishes, usually served with crusty bread and cured meat and cheese. We hear the prices are friendly, too. 

Superfood Healthy Food Factory 

Yet another health food sanctuary to add to the list, Superfood has it all. From smoothies to açai bowls, a healthier version of pancakes, eggs served every way and protein-packed ways to start your day – you can’t go wrong. It’s also important to note that Superfood is super friendly to vegans and vegetarians!

Bistro Roots

Another Split establishment that focuses on healthy, clean, and fresh food, Roots serves up eggs Benedict, açai bowls, fried eggs, smoothies, omelets, and some seriously tempting baked goods. They also honor their plant-based, vegan, or vegetarian guests with prices that don’t break the bank!

Terminal F

If you’re trying to kill time before boarding your catamaran or ferry to your next island destination, Terminal F is conveniently located by the port to ensure you’ll get there on time with full bellies. A basic breakfast menu with omelets, yogurt and granola, and French toast, your breakfast with a view could come at a bigger price tag than some others in Split. 

Pandora Greenbox

This plant-based, vegetarian restaurant opened in Split just in time to catch the summer season – and we are not complaining. Their focus is on serving clean, hearty, and healthy dishes, so full of flavor you won’t miss the meat – and they’ve succeeded. Pandora’s breakfast options range from fresh and fruity açai bowls to American pancakes and scrambled eggs. They have matcha lattes, too!

One of Split’s hottest restaurants is also known to serve up breakfast and brunch options. While there aren’t too many menu items to choose from, Bokeria offers truffle eggs, yogurt with fresh fruit and granola, prosciutto and cheese on toast and fresh-squeezed OJ.
