Each time we come back to Groznjan, a fairytale medieval village in Istria, right here is where we like to spend the mornings. Nana and I spent a long morning here drinking coffee, talking and taking mental notes (as I always do!) for the future home Cam and I dream about together. I love that hand carved chunky green table and the collection of antique wood tables up against the stone church. And then there’s all the natural elements! Everything from the huge plantation trees, lavender and citrus trees in terra cotta pots, and the open terrace of stone and gravel that overlooks a breathtaking vista of olive groves, rolling hills and vineyards stretching to the Adriatic. It’s open, breezy, green and so peaceful that you just sit back, sip on coffee, juice or wine and totally lose track of the time.
It’s my favorite cafe in the world, in one of the most charming villages of Croatia.
Isn’t that view amazing? Happy Wednesday!
