Cake Cafes: Serbians have a thing for Cakes

I swear, people in Serbia really have a thing for cakes. There is an abundance of cafes selling cakes and many locals love sitting in the cafes drinking flavoured iced or hot coffee and eating cakes!


Many cafes in Belgrade and Novi Sad have a reasonable selection of cakes on their glass display cases or menus. These are not the usual whole baked cakes sold per slice, although they do have these as well. But the cakes I saw in Serbian cafes were the specialty kind of cakes, and many of them were sold in petite individual serving sizes.

So on my first night in Serbia, and this was in Novi Sad, I thought I am going to give it a try. I do not have a sweet tooth but I had a rather quite heavy late lunch of duck so after my early evening stroll in the city centre, I have decided to skip dinner totally and head straight for coffee and dessert.

I have been seeing the colourful cake displays in many cafes so this got me curious. Serbians are really into the cake thing I thought so why not jump in on the bandwagon, even for just a night? In the Netherlands you only really see cakes at bakery shops, and sometimes at some cafes, but not the way Serbians do it here which I reckon with real sweet-tooth commercial passion. Some cafes even go as far as having a cake menu!

Unfortunately the cake I chose was too sweet for me. I could not even bring to finish the whole thing. See here the rest of the cake menu of Cafe Corso where I had the cake: Cake Menu | Kolači Menu

If you are in Serbia and you badly need your sugar rush? Nothing to worry, you are in the right place.

Too sweet for me. I could not finish this.
