It was good place for lunch break or late snack but whole place look mostly boring and a freshness of sendwiches are questionable in all clean wrping film. Guys behind counter are polite but they have lack of interest for guests and they do not sell, they just wait. We had Toplo Hldno, and chicken sandwich with lot of mayo... More

Great sandwiches after party party!! Right in the heart of the city and after clubbing even in the cold - it was delicious! We forget about the cold how tasty!

excellent sandwiches + the bar is open until 4 or 5 a.m., which makes it great for those hungry souls going home from a night out. the only thing is that it is a bit pricey, which didn't use to be several years ago

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).
