A relative newcomer on cafe-lined Tkalčićeva, The Cookie Factory has lost no time in becoming a firm favourite among Folks Who Love to Scoff Cake. Located in a cosy vaulted space, the Factory’s cheerful design scheme features the kind of childlike drawings and spidery writing that are just on the right side of cute. The bar-side glass display cabinet is full of own-recipe, melt-in-the-mouth cookies. Other treats include cheesecake, carrot cake, and brownies served with a mound of ice cream (18kn). They take festive cake orders too. As it says on the wall near the door: ‘Life is uncertain, eat dessert first’.
