Creme de la Creme is a patisserie where you can enjoy exquisite French-inspired desserts, from colorful and delicate macarons to an extensive selection of cakes and tarts. We also offer you other popular international temptations such as cheesecake and tiramisu, but if your tastebuds crave for the traditional, splitska torta (Split Cake) awaits you, made using our grandmothers' recipes with all-natural, local ingredients. The quality of raw materials comes as first priority and therefore, we are proud that our desserts are made exclusively with butter, eggs, natural sweet cream, quality chocolate, fresh fruits, and locally-sourced nuts. All desserts are hand-made from scratch, and our goal is to provide our guests and customers with sweet satisfactions, as that gives us satisfaction. Other than desserts we also have a master barista on hand who proudly roasts his very own speciality coffee, promising the freshest blend for Creme de la Creme guests. Creme de la Creme is tucked into Ilicev prolaz, a passageway just off the Marmontova shopping street. At the end of the passageway, we offer outdoor seating on the charming Morpurgo Square.

Delicious cakes

A wide range of tasty cakes on offer in a nice setting, a shame we only discovered it at the end of the week. Would definitely recommend it to satisfy a sweet tooth.

The location is a bit hidden, but they make up for it with unbelievable cakes and coffee. The crème de la crème chocolate cake is a must try!

Whilst the food, coffee and settings were all 5 star, I felt that the service was a little lacking, our waiter wasn't particularly helpful, happy or friendly. However that said, the cakes and the coffee were phenomenal so I could look passed it. Only request would be larger napkins, you get what I would describe as a tissue with your... More

Nice room, a little uncared (many lamps are burnt out, seats are a bit outworn), but you fell well there. The pastries are high class, especially "Splitska torta" is a hit. The best are the coffees you are getting. We never had a better Stretto with cream than in this place! Even not in Italy.

The classic cakes like Sachertorte were well-executed with generous portions. They also had interesting gateaux such as fig and walnut sponge, burnt caramel and chocolate tart. The staff are polite and helpful too. The only downside for us was that the decor is cream and small children + chocolate + cream chairs makes for anxious parents!

Nice place near Riva so usually, when I'm shopping or have a walk down the street, I stop here. Cakes are fantastic, always fresh and super tasty and service is good.

Beautiful cake display, so hard to choose just one! We ended up going back three times for coffee and cake and we never had a bad one. Prices were reasonable.

The cakes are to die for and the coffee makes life worth living, the staff are helpful and you can take stuff away in nice boxes. It is not overly expensive and I would definitely go back there, if my waistline allows.

I love cakes, especially chocolate ones but here... All of them look nice but when it comes for tasting... Nothing spectacular. Just ok. I gave 4* because staff is nice and polite, interior is nice furnished and coffee is good.
