Cake Shop Apce 42.000170, 21.417686 Cake Shop Apce

Skopje has several iconic spots that everybody knows. One of them is a cake shop with a rather unusual name – Apce (a pill). It has been in the same exact location since 1968 and it still has the best boza, eclairs, tulumbas, kadaif and trilece on its menu.

On the right wall of the small shop you can see the photograph of the man who started the business with an inscription “Apce boza – a legendary drink!” The cake shop is most crowded during hot summer nights when a glass of cool boza is a balm for the soul. Prices are quite affordable and a glass of boza, lemonade or blueberry juice is about 60 denars (€1).

Apce is so popular that it is used as a reference point for getting around in Debar Maalo, an old quart of Skopje. If somebody does not know where Apce is, they surely aren’t from Skopje then.
