Absolute must-see

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... read 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

My friend and I had icecream from Vincek 3 nights in a row, and it was ridiculously good. If visiting Vincek I highly recommend the icecream flavour that has 'pino' in the name. It has white coloured icecream with swirls of some sort of soft chocolate through it, and it was amazing. One thing we did notice though is that... More

we arrived at Zagreb at around 2:00pm. After a light lunch, we headed to Vincek for cakes. We went there again after dinner. The signature cake is not heavy and you can have two everyday. Don't miss it.

Vincek is a trademark "slasticarna" in downtown Zagreb I know for many years, while growing up in Croatia's capital. Not much has changed since then when it comes to food and drinks. Still all very good, fresh and delicious, with smiley and welcoming service. Wonderful...

since I've been in Vincek for the first time four years ago, every time when I go to Zagreb, I have to visit Vincek. Both Vincek, on Ilica square and other one near Bundek, are amazing, with great service, huge offer of cakes, which are delicious. It's very clean and I'll come back for sure.
