Impressive

The shop is located near the main Bana square. The display of cakes and ice-creams is outstanding. I don't know if the flavor is much better than other places, but the atmosphere is worth it.

This is a very traditional stop for cake and ice cream, but the star is the kremsnita, a vanilla and custard cream slice. Perfect with an espresso. Their ice cream creations are absolutely beautiful but too heavy on the whipped cream for my taste so if you don't want tons of cream tell them when ordering.

The service line was a bit hectic, it was hard to see all the flavors and no prices were posted. We were shocked when we ordered and our single cones were only about a euro each! Almost went back for more, but we had a train to catch.

What can I say, lovely cakes, ice creams and competitive prices. For us from England cakes were so cheap,and macaroons were such a good deal. Of course,loved the Zagreb kremsnita, so delicious.

We came for the gelato and were impressed with the selection. We tried several different flavors and found it good, but the desserts we saw there in the counter and on the menu was what really made us want to return. However, we were leaving the next day. Too bad!

The interior is a bit dated. I only tried the ice cream - it's not bad but also there is nothing particularly special about it.

Every time I visit Zagreb this is a must stop for the refreshing ice-cream or deserts from traditional to something new. They are quite busy, long lines in the summer and a bit of a wait for a table if you want to sit down. Highly recommend Vincek!

Great ice cream with lots of flavors and all very creamy. I was disappointed with the chocolate cake I ordered -- mostly frosting and soft filling and only one layer of actual sponge cake. Easy to find place with lots of seating and good vibe.

Vincek is always busy for a reason! Locals and tourist love their amazing gelato/ice cream and decadent cakes. You can order two flavors for the price of one by asking for pola/pola (half and half). The chocolate Kremsnita is amazing. While the cakes are not as sweet as most Americans are used to, this one should definitely satisfy your sweet... More
