If you’re looking for a vegan café in Split, you could well walk straight past Marta’s Veggie Fusion and not give it a second glance. Bang in the heart of the Diocletian’s Palace,  it competes with the many sights of the old city. But we highly recommend their delicious raw cakes and some of the best falafel we’ve tasted outside the Middle-East.

The setting

The location couldn’t be more picturesque.

You don’t get to sip on a protein smoothie in the heart of a UNESCO listed palace everyday.

Marta’s Veggie Fusion is adjacent to the colannaded Roman courtyard, the Peristil, which forms a perfect location for a take-away. Plus, it’s next to the Cathedral of Saint Domnius. For Game Of Throne’s fans, Daenerys kept her dragons in the basement beneath the street.

The space

Marta’s is compact.  High stool tables line one wall and there’s counter seating at the bar where you can overlook the chefs cooking dishes fresh to order.  Industrial lights and fans hang from the ceiling and a large display of raw cakes features in a cabinet overlooking the street.

What else?

The staff are really helpful and hardworking. Marta’s does take away too, and if it’s not too hot, there are plenty of amazing locations to picnic nearby from the Riva to the Peristil to Park Josipa Jurja Strossmayera.

The fresh juice test

Marta’s Veggie Fusion has a choice of smoothies, juices, ginger and cinnamon shots and home made iced tea and lemonades.




We chose the Fresh Re-Fresh juice, a zingy mix of apple, lemon and mint, and a home made iced-tea.

What we ate

Marta’s has an international range of dishes on the menu from burritos and burgers to curries and stir fries. We decided to review the Falafel Bowl and the Hummus Plate. The falafel were perfect, slightly spiced, moist centered and crispy. They came with tahini drizzle and quinoa, slaw, hummus and rocket. The Hummus Plate came with deliciously nutty, seeded bread, olives, sweetcorn and the home made slaw.

We finished off with a raw lime and coconut cake to take away. It was creamy and light and the tart lime perfectly cut through the sweetness of the coconut.

What we’d go back for…

The location, the falafel and to try the raw chocolate cake.

The bill
