Travel to Izola for a coffee with a view
Due to the influence of neighbouring Italy, coffee culture is extremely developed in the region of Slovenian Istria. If you love good coffee or even tea, you are sure to enjoy it even more in Izola, drinking coffee or tea while overlooking the vast blue sea, the town’s piazzas or the picturesque buildings in the streets of the town centre. In Izola, you are sure to be able to enjoy an unforgettable view and relax while drinking coffee all year round.
A coffee by the sea with a view of the Alps
The view from Izola lighthouse, a viewpoint where the snowy peaks of the Alps rise up before your eyes, is sure to stay engraved in your memory. There, you can drink your coffee in the “Svetilnik” restaurant and lounge bar: in addition to coffee, they can also offer you various dishes (from pizzas to pasta and meat specialities). The lighthouse is also an ideal place to watch the sunset – and why not do it with a glass of wine in your hand?
In the Bariera bar, located on Izola’s promenade along with a couple of other restaurants and the Café d’Isola, you can enjoy the view of the Izola Marina and Strunjan Landscape Park. The Izola promenade is also known as the “sunny embankment”, and for good reason. Here, the sunlight will fill you up with warmth even during the winter.
Intimate atmosphere at Manzioli Square
If you prefer a more intimate atmosphere with a Mediterranean touch, you will surely love the Manzioli Wine Bar. The bar is open throughout the year and offers an extremely wide range, from coffees to different types of wines (over a hundred of them), rums, and snacks. Mostly in the summer, the eponymous square is also the stage for numerous concerts and other cultural and gastronomical events.
Drinking coffee is a particular ritual: the five minutes out of your morning or afternoon that you take “for yourself”. It is also a time that allows you to recharge your batteries and start something new. While drinking coffee, we often also connect with other people, especially our friends.
A cup of coffee in the heart of the town
The Caffe Alle Porte, located at the crossroads of Ljubljanska street, Koprska street and Ulica ob vratih, offers a pleasant sanctuary with a view of the charming medieval streets of Izola. The café is located in the heart of town, right next to the market. If you wish to drink your coffee with a view of the famous Pietro Coppo park in Izola, which is a beautiful spot all year round, we recommend you visit the Diana café.
A coffee with the most beautiful view of Izola
One of the most beautiful views of Izola, however, can be observed from the “Kamin” restaurant in Belvedere, boasting a spacious balcony overlooking the town and the Gulf of Trieste. When drinking coffee, you’re also sure to notice the intoxicating scents emanating from the kitchen: the restaurant is particularly famous for its excellent food. And who knows, maybe the aromas will convince you to stay for lunch?
