Editor's note: La Marquise is closed with no plans to reopen.
French bakeries in La Belle Croatie don’t get much better than this, with several shelves full of croissants, brioches, baguette sandwiches and open-topped tartines. La Marquise also does an exemplary Quiche Lorraine, which at 12Kn per slice is one of the best gourmet deals in the city. There is also plenty in the way of cakes and tarts, with cone-shaped lemon meringue mini-pies (19.50Kn) a particular standout. Their hand-made chocolates are quite a big deal too, with a variety of pralines sold by weight. There’s no room for patrons to eat in, unfortunately, but Marquise is a near-vital resource if you need to assemble a picnic, or are looking for breakfast ideas that don’t just boil down to burek.
