I read about this place in Rick Steves' Eastern Europe guide. I was traveling solo, and in the area where this place is located there were a lot of "fancy" restaurants. This place was inexpensive but tasty. I had the grilled chicken sandwich. Outstanding!! They have tables right there where you can eat - or you can take it away.... More

Probably the best sandwiches in the city, variety of side dishes, friendly atmosphere, in the center of Zagreb city.

This place is part of life of everyone that grew up in Zagreb. We used to have this place on our route to going out many many years ago. And they still remain a place to visit sometime. Good food to try in the Zagreb centre.

Probably the oldest fast food place in Zagreb, where you can still find delicious sandwiches at a reasonable price even late at night (or early morning if you prefer).

It was good place for lunch break but in last days whole place loose touch, its mostly boring and sometimes a freshness of sendwiches are questionable. My favorite meal there is Toplo Hladno,with this you cannot go wrong.

Wonderful well priced sandwiches. I had the Rumpsteak one and it was perfect. Please try the sauce with garlic. To die for!

This place rocks. I had fried cheese sandwich. They didn't have fried oyster mushroom otherwise I would have that.
