Croatian Coastal Cafe Makes Pensioners Feel Like Politicans

podgora (3)A cafe in the small picturesque Dalmatian coastal town of Podgora has decided to give the town’s pensioners a taste of life as a privileged member of parliament..at least whilst they are drinking coffee…

“Parliament Coffee” is now on the menu at Cafe Srećko, with the 3.50 kuna coffee (0.45 EUR cents) offer only available for retired folk. With coffee drinking a national pastime in Croatia, the offer has proven to be very popular in the tourist town. The coffee deal was to be called “Pensioners Coffee”, but the cafe’s owner thought it would be offensive so changed the name.

“I don’t know exactly how much coffee costs in Parliament, but I know that the MP’s have huge pays and eat and drink there for nothing,” owner  Vladimir Bilić explained to daily 24sata the rational behind the name.

“My father is a pensioner and lives tough. The idea came to help the pensioners of Podgora and offer them coffee at Parliament prices,”  said Bilić, adding that punters just need to show their ID’s whilst ordering the coffee.
