Casa del Padrone on the main quay promenade: Wide selection of cocktails and coffees on the terrace right at the seafront, protruding out of the quay promenade almost like a boat. Also offers gorgeous cakes and ice cream. Beautiful settings with plush cushioned chairs.

The night club Volsonis offers a unique experience of dancing and drinking cocktails in a 2000 year old roman archeological site under the ground.

SleepEdit

There's a youth hostel in Krk [1] [dead link]. It is pretty run-down though, and you cannot lock the toilet and shower doors! The location is excellent though and you won't get a cheaper bed. One night in a 3-4 bedroom dorm is around 117 kn plus tax and a "registration fee" so it sets you back about 150 kn. The place used to be for over 55 people, the owner has had registered it for 24 guests only so you will find half of the rooms locked and taped up by the tax office.
