Koper Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Koper

October 10, 2017 Kandra Bartel

Koper (Slovene pronunciation: [ˈkoːpəɾ] ( listen)) (Italian: Capodistria) is a city in southwestern Slovenia, with the other Slovenian coastal towns Ankaran, Izola, Piran, and Portorož, situated along the country's 47-kilometre (29-mile) coastline, in the Istrian Region, approximately five kilometres (3.1 miles) from its border with Italy. Having a unique ecology and biodiversity, it is considered an important national natural resource. The city's Port of Koper is the major contributor to the economy of the eponymous city municipality. With only one percent of Slovenia having a coastline, the influence that the Port of Koper also has on tourism was a factor in Ankaran deciding to leave the municipality in a referendum in 2011 to establish its own. The city is a destination on a number of Mediterranean cruising lines. In 2016, the city expects 65 cruise ship arrivals (for example: Norwegian Spirit, MSC Magnifica, Norwegian Jade, MS Rhapsody of the Seas...) with the season spanning from March to December. Koper is the main urban centre of the Slovenian Istria, with a population of about 25,000.

This is definitely the place to have a coffee (very cheap) whist sitting in the magnificent Tito Square, admiring the view and watching the world go by. Get a table by the square - the food is fresh and good as well.

Cajnica Vanilla

It's a business made by 2 young persons who wanted to have a tea house in their city/region. With a large variety of teas and beer to chose from, good coffee, home made desserts and now even a beer shop inside, this is a place worth visiting in Koper.

Reviewed By TomasDanielUK - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Stood here several times for a breakfast. Cafe and croissant. Very nice place to start the morning - and compared to many other places - very friendly service. A bit more sortiment for cakes is missing - but the rest is well done and clean :O)

Reviewed By jetboyb747 - Tecumseh, Canada

We were in town as a cruise stop. We wandered around on a very hot day. Popped in here for some cold beverages and a snack before a tour in the afternoon. Very clean place, with good prices. The fruit beverages are all made fresh. Beer was very cold. A must on such a hot day. Staff were very nice as well.

Good variety, great taste, decent size scoops, perfect for talking & enjoying where you are ... nice service and reasonable prices.Thanks for your review! I guess since you're from the states, you won't be able to visit us again soon ... but we hope you'll come see us again if you're in the surroundings. :)
