The most famous pastry shop in Istria is surely Villa Soši, on the market in Umag. The pastry shop was founded more than twenty-five years ago by Dragica Lukin, a chef with an enviable career and many domestic and international awards that she has received for her culinary skills. Dragica was joined by her son and a young team and today they work all together in the pastry shop. From the beginning, Villa Soši was different from other pastry shops offering an incredible variety of pastries and cakes. The same is nowadays with a large selection of pastries and the possibility to order cakes for all occasions. Special attention is paid to the newlyweds who can really get the cake of their dreams: from simple white low cakes with minimalist decorations, to amazing high creations, real architectural models, that delight by their creativity and by the rich flavours. Each cake is made with the finest ingredients and seasonality is respected when it comes to fruit creations. Villa Soši nurtures the tradition of home-made desserts and their cakes are inspired by the local pastry heritage. Vanilla buns, meringues, sweet peaches, chocolate balls and a walnut cake. It’s hard to resist the abundance in the showcases and the tempting scents of freshly baked cookies and golden pastries. That is why many locals but also tourist walking around the market come to Villa Soši for the first-morning coffee. Be sure to join them in that daily pleasure.
