I'm not an ice cream lover. Cross my heart! But I couldn't pass Cacao without a cone with taste of wild berry and muffin. Don't miss it and you'll say: "Slovenia has best ice cream I ever tasted" :)) And I'm not working there :)).

Cacao is situated in the center of city center, near France Presern's monument. If you are in the neighborhood do not miss opportunity to taste really excellent ice cream, one of the best in Ljubljana.

This place has a nice location across the river from architect Plečnik's arcades and in the heart of the city life. There is a lovely view from the river terrace and also from the 1st floor inside in the winter. They also serve great ice cream and sweets, but it is a little too popular and therefore crowded so often... More

It is actually a cake shope. One of the best considering service, quality of coffee or tea and especcially a quality of ice cream If you like ICE CREAM, then this is the right place. By the way, the CACAO cake shop has it's twin in Portoroz at the seaside. You will love it as well.

The location of the bar is really nice, next to the river and they have delicious ice cream. Also, the stuff is very friendly and fast eventhough the bar is always full of people and on a sunny day you are lucky if you get a place to sit on the terace
