Slastice Margareta

In August 1996, the Debelić family opened a family business in Cres. With cookies prepared according to old Cres recipes, we were the first who ventured to publicly produce and offer home-made products to Cres and the general public. Combining our profession and our desire to stay on the island, we set out with love to make our long-term dream reality. To honor the taste of the island's grandmothers, the goal was and remains to save the old indigenous dessert recipes from oblivion, with which we reminded the locals of their childhood, and introduced the traditions of our region to tourists. All products are original and traditional,made by hand and without preservatives. We are promoters of island values, participants in various fairs on the island and throughout Croatia, winners of many awards. We have confirmed our originality and quality with the label ""CROATIAN ISLAND PRODUCT"", which is awarded by the Republic of Croatia. For years, banquet tables have been adorned with our buculini, kacotini, rosettes, fig gingerbread, salvia buculin, čifleti, candied almonds, becoming recognizable around the world. Škanjata, pugaca oliveta, buculin oliva, šulčić, and - as the crown of the 15th anniversary of our business - the CAKE OF OUR CAPTAINS, a more lasting original souvenir. Our job is at the same time noble and beautiful because we delight our customers with cakes and pastries for various occasions, and especially children with cakes decorated with their favorite cartoon characters. Persistence, belief in the idea and great work commitment have enabled the business to survive and continue working over two generations. We enrich the tradition of the City of Cres with a year-round offer.
Sweets “Margareta” are produced traditionally by the family owned pastry shop in Cres, specialised in domestic confectionery production. The handicraft enterprise was established in 1996, with a desire to revive the traditional cake handicraft production based on old local recipes from the Island of Cres. All ingredients used in the production are natural, and the products contain no preservatives. They are made of honey, particularly sage honey, walnuts, almonds, figs, lemons, oranges… In addition to the traditional pastries (buculini, rozete, kacotini, čifleti, candied almonds, fritule, kroštule, sweet bread pogača, škanjata), our pastry shop offers cakes in different shapes, of various dimensions and tastes, a variety of cream-based cakes, different types of strudel, biscuits and salty rolls… “Slastice Margareta” is a proud receiver of several prizes; since 2010, their traditional cookies have been recognised as a CROATIAN ISLAND PRODUCT by the Ministry of the Republic Croatia for Sea, Traffic and Infrastructure. “Slastice Margareta” are located at the entrance to Cres, on the Promenade, in the direction towards the elementary school and kindergarten. We are expecting you and we wish you a sweet stay in Cres.
