The fact that cacao brings a #1 restaurant ranking is in no way indicative of poor gastronomy in Ljubljana, but outstanding desserts here. Renowned for the ice cream, but it was really the pistachio cake that blew me away. I have few words to describe this amazingness. (Y creo que es venezolano el dueño!

Coffee very good in an excellent location but, the real highlights are the ice creams! Seemingly hundreds of flavours and all delicious..... Friend had the banana split - be warned if you're going to have one it's a meal in itself!

Great ice cream - an incredible selection of flavors and great prices. Location by the river is great - particularly in the summer.

I ordered a vanilla-mango iced tea but I got an ordinary hibiscus warm tea with some ice cubes in it. And a tasteless piece of mango. No signs of vanilla. I forgot to mention they wanted 3 € for that. However, a few years ago my friend and I ordered ice cream with a hint of alcohol and it was... More

Ice cream and chocolate milkshake were amazing. The chocolate cake was great too however we were disappointed as we thought it would be more like a devil food cake and less sponge / creamy. For someone who doesn't like sponge cake it was still great!

Very nice location and good ice cream but cakes are too average quality for the price. We ate coconut cake which was made of dry sponge and cream with sugar and coconut meal without coconut taste at all. but ice creams are very good and they offer a lot of different drinks and food.

Being a Kiwi i am a connoisseur if icecream and this is nearly as good as New Zealand! Sit down inside or by the river or take away. Not bad price for what you get. I had a scoop of mango and a scoop of fig - GOOD.

It is situated in the city centre and it is very relaxing place to sit and enjoy the weather, meet with your friends for a coffee and cake. They have quite a variety of ice cream flavours and believe me, the majority are amazing. They also serve great sandwiches and coffee :) But, back to ice creams- fruity flavours are... More
