It’s rare for a hotel café to function as a happening bar that’s good enough to pull in outside custom. It’s a trick that Cont (as in Continental, the name of the hotel to which is attached) has pulled off rather well by turning itself into lunch bar and craft-beer pub, with a selection of draft ales from the St Vid (Rijeka) and Medvedgrad (Zagreb) stables, and a lot more in bottles. There’s a week-day offering of marenda (‘elevenses’) chalked up on a board outside (available from 10am to 1pm Mon-Fri, they’re great value if you’re ready for an early lunch), and an all-day menu of burgers, pastas and goulashy stews. With a wedge of outdoor seating under lime trees, it’s a great place to kick back.
