Robert Hromalić is easily one of Croatia’s most talented pastry chefs, having trained under the watchful eye of French patisserie-extraordinaire Yann Couvreur, but Le Kolač keeps things simple with just five options on the menu. A range of finger-shaped eclairs are stuffed with the most divine ingredients - the chocolate version is a heavenly rich mousse with a crunchy cocoa-nibbed glaze. The lješnjak (hazelnut) is a creamy, nutty affair with white chocolate ganache and an edible golden exterior. The shop is cutesy enough, but the cakes are really the star of the show - you’d struggle to find a better quality patisserie in town and at 27 kunas each, (€3.60) these sophisticated treats are extraordinarily good-value.
When it comes to sweet treats, Zagreb really takes the cake. Croatians love to indulge their sweet tooth and as a result, you'll find plenty of excellent cake shops and patisseries spread across the capital. From old school bakeries serving traditional treats to smart new patisseries selling exotic creations, we've tracked down the best cake shops in Zagreb.
