For a substantial mid-day meal, head to the centrally located Galatasaray for some local fast food. The cevapi and burek served here are consistently high quality, and if you're looking to familiarize yourself with local cuisine, this would be a good place to start.


The cosiest cafés in town are concentrated in the Bascarsija district made up of cobbled streets and packed to the brim with small shops and historic buildings. Sit down and relax with a strong cup of coffee at one of the many outdoor terraces along Ferhadija Street. This is a perfect spot for people-watching.
