Cozy places to have a bite in Zagreb
The Cookie Factory in Tkalčićeva street serves cookies and cakes inspired by American traditions. Besides cookies, brownies, cakes and ice creams you can have some really good coffee there. The interior of the place reminds me of a living room – there are comfy chairs, cute little signs on the walls, and it’s filled with the smell of coffee.
Besides for great food, Nokturno is also famous for its location – Skalinska street is a tiny street that connects Tkaličićeva street to Dolac market. Nokturno’s interior is warm and rustic, however, the place is most famous for its cozy wooden terrace that gets quite busy during the warmer seasons. They serve Italian and some traditional Croatian food.
The first Kava Tava opened in 2007 in Britanski square, followed by the opening of another one in Tkalčićeva street. There’s a specific red -wooden – retro design that makes this place very charming and cozy. It is most famous for big and delicious portions of American pancakes with fruits and chocolate.
The crispy, thin-crust pizza from a clay oven is an institution in Zagreb. You can find Karijola in two locations in Zagreb: in Vlaška street and in Badalićeva street.
This is definitely love at first cake! Mak na Konac is located near the Trg Žrtava Fašizma square. Their signature is the magnificent poppy-seed cake filled with raspberry jam.
Cušpajz - A small but very special place in Gajeva street that serves healthy stews (which are called čušpajz in Croatian). The smell of the stews, the colorful but tiny interior and the charming little terrace will make you feel at home immediately. Every day you can choose between a veggie and a meat stew.
