“Without doubt the best ice-cream in Zagreb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The cakes here are of a high standard but the reason Vincek is better than any other similar establishment in Zagreb (e.g. Oranž, Millennium) is that its ice-cream is second to none. There are the standard flavours, a few low fat ones, some interesting fruit options and then some off-the-chart crazy flavours that need to be tasted (e.g. Pumpkin-seed oil ice-cream). The kiwi ice-cream is so refreshing (if it is not on the main counter then you can find it at the smaller counter inside where the drinks are made) but the very best is the intense dark chocolate ice-cream. It does get crowded here but that is simply because it is an institution of sorts and so popular. People who like chestnuts in a variety of ways will like this place too. The only negative point I can say is that table-service by waiters is a bit slow and you tend to have to order and pay and carry your plates to your table yourself (so get somebody to go and sit at a table first or risk ending up without anywhere to sit). Once again, any flaws which the place may have in any other department are more than compensated for by the quality of the ice-cream.

“Awesome Ice Cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Great ice cream, big portions and huge choice of flavours. The bad thing is that it's crowded most of the time and you can't find a place to sit and you have to wait a bit to order.

“Used to be best in town, now one of the worst.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

They used to be the best cake shop in town now they are one of the worst. The ingredient has changed and I ate there on a few occasions but I did not like how they changed the ingredients and now the ice cream and cakes just don't taste anything different from other cake shops in town. I found a new place I like.

“Another old favourite...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Not trying to say there aren't many good patisseries in Zagreb - but Vincek is an old favourite and remains so, although was disappointed to find out that the only two types of kremšnite offered both contain chocolate (I love chocolate, but this wonderful invention does not need any, as it doesn't cream which also seems obligatory).

Everything else is still very very good and I could happily go back to my student days where almost daily visits never disappointed. And as for kremšnite, I'm sure Samobor will have them as Lord intended, so next time heading in that direction...
