My family moved to Zagreb in February 2017. We rented an apartment close to the British square. On the first morning after the move, we woke up confused but excited. To celebrate our big life decision (and not to have to deal with the dirty dishes), we walked out in the pouring rain to find the nearest place open for breakfast.
Kava Tava was open, warm and welcoming. On that grey February morning, we discovered that Kava Tava serves eggs, fried mushrooms and beans, which made my English husband happy. They also offer pancakes with various toppings, which made our kids happy. I had coffee, which made me happy. So we were all really happy (for about five minutes until the kids got bored).
Since then, Kava Tava has proven to be an incredible place for me to work in peace. Friendly waiters, solid internet connection, no cigarette smoke, good background music. And since I’m there most mornings, a few days ago I was treated to a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice because I, apparently, looked “like I needed some vitamins”. I chose not to get offended.
I’d describe Kava Tava on the British square as a quiet neighbourhood place that welcomes everyone – it’s definitely one of my all-time favourites.
