This is a place with tradition, there are several shops around the town, always crowded, especially in summer, when there is often a line in the stree to buy ice-cream. There is a large selection of cakes available, very good quality. People often order cakes her for birthday and similar parties.

Every time when I come to Zagreb I visit Vincek at Ilica street. Cakes are good as long as you avoid chocolate cream cake. Nougat cake, chocolate mignon, cream with rasberry... Everything is delicious and reasonably priced. On the other hand - fussy atmosphere, too much people, in fact, it is a machinery system of producing cakes and ice creams.

Decent ice cream in this place, located on the main commercial street in Zagreb. 14 kn for 2 scoops of ice cream. Seems to be popular with the locals which is always a good sign.

Vince cake shop is always full with visitors, due to its great position in Ilica Street near the main square. It use to be the best such place in Zagreb. But since many other great ice cream and cakes shops opened up, it has NO such good quality as before. I bought an apple pie and had a stomach ache... More

I highly recommend this place. It's in the city center just a few minutes walk from Jelačić square (main square). The prices are OK and the staff very friendly. I really can't describe how delicious the cakes and ice creams are, you just have to try it.

You MUST try Vincek if you come to Zagreb. It's a real haven of Croatian cakes - order at least 2 types/slices per person to try as many as possible during your visit. Most locals would recommend it as the place to try Croatian cakes/pastries. I like their plum slice (seasonal) and any of their chestnut cakes. It's always crowded... More

Vincek is and has been the best cake / pastry shop in Zagreb for more than 20 years! Try their cherry strudel. To die for. It is conveniently situated in the main street Ilica just a few steps away from the main square.

I get this place has history etc, but the Croatian palate and skill for desserts is almost non-existent. If you have been to Italy, you will know what gelato is meant to taste like. The stuff here is overly sweet. The cakes and pastries look better than they taste. Overall a disappointment
