It is sad that Vincek is no longer what it used to be. Their cakes used to be the best in Zagreb, but now they taste as made in some large pastry factory/complex. Although I still stop by for tortas etc, as it is conveniently located, there is no longer pastry distinction, heart or soul, it is all like one... More

After few year I visited Vincek. I was disappointed because it is no longer Vincek as before. I can not say that the cakes are not good quality, but have become too industrial.

Vincek is Zagrebs most famous ice cream. This local in Ilica is situated next to fameous Uspinjaca, and it is practically one of the simbols of the city. Although there are lot of other pasteries in the centre, this is the one you absolutely must visit. During spring and summer, there is always a queue outside Vincek, because of its... More

This is an excellent café right in the middle of town on the busy Ilica thoroughfare. The selection of cakes and ice-cream is first-rate - so much so that Vincek is usually packed out every minute of its opening hours. There is an odd ordering system - coffee and beverages are brought to the table but cakes are self-service. There... More
