The Cookie Factory

The sign outside the cafe.

I discovered this scrumptious café in December 2013, thanks to my friend. She and her husband are friends with the owner and it was when she and I were looking at a map of Jelačić Square that she casually mentioned this place and pointed it out on the map.

I knew I had to try it! I have a major sweet tooth… I hear the word “sweets” and my blood sugar instantly plummets just so I’ll have to eat something sweet! Okay, that’s not true but I think you get my point.🍪

As an American, I’m always curious to try restaurants in other countries that claim to be American-style. The first thing you should know about this place is that it’s always packed! If you’re determined to eat here you might have to wait a few minutes for someone to leave in order to get a seat. Second – The hazelnut ice cream is delicious!

I have a confession. I actually went there two days in a row…

Me with the owner, Teo. That’s Theo for you English speakers! Pic is a bit blurry… Maybe the photographer had too much coffee? 😉

Now that I’ve discovered this place I realize that moving to Zagreb might be dangerous for me simply because I would be eating at this place every day!

The only minor drawback is that the music was a little bit too loud and I could hardly hear my friend. Despite that, the food is great and the decor is so flippin’ awesome! This place has a friendly atmosphere, good service and it’s a nice place to hang out overall.

If you’re ever in Zagreb, do go check it out. You’ll love it!

You can find the The Cookie Factory on Twitter and Facebook.

Bon appétit!
