Vincek: Best ice-cream in Croatia
Vincek is the best known pastry shop in the city of Zagreb. It is always very crowded and hard to get free table inside of it. During the summer season the people stands outside of it waiting to get extraordinary self-made ice-cream, which is the best you have ever had.
This August my Italian friends with two small girls have visited Zagreb. Their girls were delightful with the ice-cream at Vincek, taking it two times each day.
Favorite Dish: Open from Monday to Saturday 08:30-23:00, closed on Sundays.
Dessert shop: Vanilla
Recently opened dessert shop, offers variety of cakes and ice-cream (sometimes really interesting flavours). There also some tarts and cookies. You get a top quality cake for a fair price. 10kn= 1 piece of cake
Favorite Dish: Everything I tried was great.
Ivica i Marica: CAKES FROM A FAIRYTALE
Every tourist that has ever been down Tkalciceva has seen Ivica i Marica I bet. It's a small cafe located inside the house of Hänsel & Gretel from Grimm's fairytale. It looks like it's bought second hand from Disneyland and it definitely looks like a tourist trap. Well, what can I say? It isn't! Go in and find out!
Next door to the cakes place the same owners opened an organic restaurant under the same name now. We came here for a VT dinner in 2005 and I really enjoyed the food and the company.
Favorite Dish: The "organic" cakes, especially the cheesecake, are wonderful. The mushroom risotto I had in the restaurant next door was lovely too, and so were the traditional Croatian starters we all shared.
What's even better, however, is the apple juice they serve in both places. It tastes like directly from the tree!

Ivica&Marica healthy cakes: Sweet but healthy
Ivica & Marica patisserie (translated as Hansel & Gretel) is a unique place as it serves a wide variety of cakes with a healthy twist; all ingredients used are fresh, free range, whole grain. Except cakes they have healthy savory snacks. The place is not unique just because of it's range and quality of produce but it actually looks like a house made from sweets on the outside (it's just like in the Hansel & Gretel story; except there's no witch inside waiting for you).
Favorite Dish: I have not tried one cake that wasn't really good, but my two favorites are: Crustada od višanja (crunchy pastry with cherries and cheese); Međimurska gibanica (layers of tissue-thin layers of pastry with walnuts, cheese, poppy seeds, apples).
CHOCO BAR Bonbonnière Kraš: Sin City
Can't talk right now -- I have a mouthful of chocolate and orange cake (Narancina pjesma -- singing orange?)...maybe I'll make my way towards the chocolate fountain later on...then again I'll have another coffee, perhaps Kras Cappuccino Irish...Oh, it's so difficult to decide! The cafe is warm and inviting, the staff attentive and you might want to try every delicate choco morsel in the menu.
Favorite Dish: The moister than moist chocolate cakes. All of them. The cafe also stocks a great selection of the legendary Kras chocolate. There's no such thing as too much chocolate! Oh, and the coffee...

Millennium: Best Ice-cream place in Zagreb
great ice-cream shop, with different ice-cream flavors. it's situated in one on the busy coffee/restaurants streets. you can take your ice-cream to go or enjoy it at the outside terrace. if you prefer the latter, take into account that it would take you some time to find an available table in the evenings. there are dozens people like you trying to do the same ;)
Favorite Dish: I have had several flavors, but Rocky Road and Amaretto are still my favorites.

Favorite Dish: kiwi and banana taste are particularly interesting (positively).
Dessert shop: Cakes and that aka Torte i to
Torte i to(in english= Cakes and that) is a recenetly opened cafe with great cakes. Situated in Kaptol centar (shopping center in Tkalciceva street). It offers top quality cakes, one of the best in Zagreb. It has a nice outdoor terrace, indoor smoking and no-smoking department.
The cakes may cost few kunas more than in most Dessert shops in Zagreb (15 kunas for a cake to be exact), but it is worth it!
Favorite Dish: Cheese cake

Favorite Dish: Ice cream,definitely. Especially in the summer when there are so many different tastes that you really have to think before you decide. And portions are large.
Zagrebacke kremšnite,bohem kocke, Vincek cake, and many many different desserts.
Kavana Dubrovnik: PEOPLEWATCHING AT ITS BEST
We were frozen while walking around and Thomas was craving for one of these great Croatian coffees. This is how we found our favourite place to kill time in Zagreb: Kavana Dubrovnik which belongs to Hotel Dubrovnik, one of the oldest coffeehouses in Zagreb. It's located right at the main square opposite the tram stop. Make sure to sit at one of the large windows and enjoy the peoplewatching here, after a while you will have seen everybody who is walking around Zagreb that day!!!
We came here every afternoon afterwards and spent HOURS here. Even the waiter knew us in the end ;-) It never got boring.... and the cakes were delicious, too.
Favorite Dish: The views. And the raspberry cake.
Sweets of all kind including some world famous sweets, as well as local sweets, best ice-cream in town and in the autumn you have to try mashed chestnut with cream, it taste excellent:)
Favorite Dish: Ice-cream, ice-cream and ice-cream
Dessert shop: Vincek Ice Cream & Cakes
I think that Vincek may be Zagreb’s most popular dessert hangout, because both times we went there it was very busy. They have a large range of cakes and interesting range of ice cream flavours all at a reasonable price. They only charge 3kn (US$0.50) per scoop of ice cream, and they are very generous with the scoop sizes. Even though it was busy we still got a table, we just had to be quick and ready for when the people got up to leave.
Slasticarnica "Zagreb": Kremshnite Zagrebiensis
Nakon duge i iscrpljujuce setnje gradom, Mark aka Acemj je izgledao tako lose da smo ga morali povratiti u normalu. Za takvo sto postoje dvije opcije, jedna je umjetno disanje, ali Niksa i ja nismo znali kako se to radi. Druga opcija je bila da covjeku damo secera ili nesto slatko. Kako smo se nasli u blizini slasticarnice, odlucili smo se za ovo drugo rjesenje.
Favorite Dish: Kremshnita ala Zagrebiensis, of course.

Ivica i Marica: Delicacy shop
This is the most favorite kids place (and not only for the kids) in Tkalciceva ulica, pastry shop called "Ivica & Marica" (John and Mary). Here the fable story has become the reality.
Favorite Dish: Well, when in Zagreb visitor have to try kremshnita, which is the most popular and best known dessert. Also, if in late autumn, you have to try maron's cakes.
