Modern little specialty coffee shop that had only been open 8 days when we went but already had a great vibe. We would recommend the coffee shake which was their version of an iced coffee (served in a cocktail glass) - Very refreshing on a hot afternoon. In the mornings they serve freshly baked pastries as well as chia and granola fruit bowls.

This was a great find. Very cool restaurant down a lively alleyway. The service was great and the food excellent. The traditional beef served on gnocchi was delicious and they serve you little surprise dishes throughout the meal. It pays to book as is very popular. The downside is that they do try and rush you through but it is definitely still worth a visit.

We met the owner while drinking coffee in kava37 and he invited us to his restaurant for lunch. We sat on the rooftop bar which was very cool. It was very quiet at lunch but is apparently very busy and lively in the evening. More of a fine dining style restaurant with exceptional service. We ate fresh fish which was served with a very nice bottle of Posip wine (Posip is a white wine grape that primarily grows in the Dalmatian region of Croatia). This was kindly supplied on the house (cannot guarantee this).
Natural Hvar Tours
We did a bike tour through Natural Hvar Tours (a very authentic family business) and could not recommend it more. We biked through the gorgeous villages of Stari Grad, Vrboska and Jesla - Through vineyards, olive groves and fields of lavender (how dreamy) and learnt about the history of the food and wine on the Island. At the end of the tour you get to taste the wine and olive oil from the family’s farm accompanied by home made baking. Booking is essential. A very special day!
We stayed in a very quiet area about 15 minutes walk along the coast from the Old Town . It had stunning uninterrupted views of the sea and swimming places all along the coast accessed by ladders that were attached to the rocks.
