Magnolia Slastice: One of the Most Charming Cafe Bakeries in Zagreb

Monday, November 28, 2016


Zagreb isn't a big capitol city, but it is full of gems. It seems like every time we walk down Ilica, the main shopping street in the old part of the city, there's a new cafe or cute shop or restaurant. I've passed Magnolia Slastice so many times since it opened in September, wanting to go in, and finally did this morning with John Shea! Ever since he was a baby, he has been my go-to little person to try out coffee shops and bakeries. He was an absolute angel this morning, eating his macarons (no one loves macarons like John Shea!!) while I drank my coffee.


This part of Croatia does cakes so well -- they're not overly sweet but always creamy. Kremsnita is one of the most famous kinds, with a thick cream filling inbetween puff pastry, which originates from the beautiful town of Samobor (bottom left cake).  The Zagreb kind of kremsnita has a layer of chocolate on top. Though the best cake I've ever had here is cheesecake (from Torte i To) !


Sharing macarons with Mali Rex :)


The coffee culture in Zagreb is amazing -- there are over 1,000 cafes, everywhere you look. Magnolia is definitely one of the prettiest I've been in, and like the rest of our city, their bakery selection and decor change with seasons.  // Magnolia Slastice, Gundulićeva 4, Zagreb
