Opened in late 2013, Chocolat 041 was quickly enthroned as the most talked-about coffee-cake-and-ice-cream places in town. The fact that it is owned by former Croatian international Zvonimir Boban is only part of the reason; the ice cream is superb, and the range of irresistible cakes – all of which are based on chocolate in some way or another – almost guarantees repeat visits. The décor, too, is a talking point: comic strips and album covers recall Zagreb pop culture of the 1980s, and a relief on one wall spells out the name Zvečka - a tribute to the New-Wave-scene café that once stood next door at no.23. The partially glass ceiling means that people seated down below can look up the chair legs of the first-floor lounge – so think about wearing long trousers if you’re heading upstairs.
