So for coffee lovers out there, this is a must to savor! In Europe, this is where it all began. It’s all about the coffee….. Ps- You can find great traditional coffee @ Restaurant Sadrvan and Restaurant Europa @ the old bridge of Mostar. There are many more places I’m sure. But currently, these 2 places are our fav.s. Enjoy!
