Caffe bar Sidro

Hvar's most popular caffe bar

About Us

Long in 1977 I and my husband came to the idea to open a bar in our family house in the city of Hvar.

The bar is located at the unique place between two beautiful parks close to the sea which is refreshed by the afternoon breeze in the summer and cooled by bura in the winter making the sunny angle of Hvar.

The front and the most comfortable part of the bar is occupied by the terrace with spectacular view to the sea and Pakleni islands.

The bar with its music attracts the public of all ages from VIP persons to ordinary people; all of them enjoy the best coffee in the town as well as the cocktails that offer a special pleasure in summer nights.

We recommend our lime cocktails, especially the best of all MOJITO, after having drunk our mojito the dream becomes the reality.

You do not have to go to Cuba to dream MOJITO dream.

Middle Dalmatia, where Hvar is located, has tipical Mediterranean cusine which is among the healthiest cuisines in the world. Dalmatian cuisine is based on Meditteranean nutrition where main ingredients are coming from the sea ie. various types of fish, oysters and shellfish, mollusks (squid, cuttlefish, octopuss), crabs (shrimps, lobsters) etc. with plenty of extra virgin olive oil, vegetables and selfgrown herbs and weeds used as spices.
The speciality of this cuisine is in the way of prepairing foods. Vegetables are cooked in water, sesoned with olive oil, and sprinkeld with spicy herbs like rosemary, sage, basil, and oregano. Fish is boiled, made in stew or baked on embers, and meat baked on embers gets a unique flavour. As fish was the main foodstuff through Dalmatian history, Dalmatians also used to preserve it by salting and marinate it, and that custom is still alive in some Dalmatian places even today.
Beside fish, a great part in Dalmatian gastronomy belongs to olive. Except making extra virgin olive oil from it, Dalmatians also love to preserve them by salting, and such are a unavodiable side dish to another Dalmatian speciality ñ prosciutto (smoked ham dried on north wind called Bora in Dalmatia). Another side dish to prosciutto is cheese, mostely sheep and goat cheese, with the best ones beeing from the island of Pag. Pagís mutton is also very appreciated due to natural phenomenon called Ñsalteningì when Bora sprays sea water on the island, which saltens the pastures and makes their meat naturally salty. Except mutton, the most famous meat dish in Dalmatia is paöticada stew served with gnocchi. Areas rich with fresh water are known by dishes made from frogs, eels and crayfish.
Dalmatian wines are respected from the ancient times. Dalmatia is proud of its wines such as: Dingač and Pošip from Pelješac peninsula; Babić from Primošten; Vugava and Plančić from the island of Hvar; Poöip and Grk from the island of Korčula; Marastina from the island of Lastovo; Malvazija from Dubrovnik etc. and also with Prošek dessert wine, strong spirits (made from grapes and herbs) and liqueurs (Maraschino, Vlahov).
Typical Dalmatian desserts win your heart by their simplicity. Most common ingredients include Meditteranean fruits: dried figs, raisins and almonds, eggs, honey etc. Some of most known desserts are: ravioli, mandulat, fig cake, pepper biscuits from the island of Hvar and Dubrovnik flan.
