It’s about time that Hvar town’s stodgy-strudel bakery scene received a bit of a shake-up. Located on the narrow stone alley that threads its way through Burak, just uphill from the Riva, ‘Granny’s Cafe’ is everything you might want from a cake shop, with muffins, brownies and thick slices of torte backed up by good quality coffee. There’s a lot of local-recipe fare here too, with traditional biscuits like Hforski koloč (‘Hvar cake’ –a melt-in-the-mouth affair with a mild citrus flavour) piled up on the display counter. With limited space inside and a couple of chairs out in the alley, it’s only a shame that there are so few tables.
