a bit pricy but great location, food and desserts

I frequent this place very often, most of the times I've been just for coffee. I had some sandwiches and toast here and they were always good, so was the icecream which seems to be of consistent quality. Note that they have american style coffee here ;) In winter, there is much more space upstairs... read more

I like this place very much, it is in the center of old Ljubljana, the most beautiful town on the world. I visit it at winter time and summer time, there is nice outside garden by river Ljubljanica and big room inside in the first floor. I like very good ice creams and I like to order maracaibo coupa the... More

The blueberry yogurt torte was simply wonderful! Had that yesterday with a cappuccino at around 5:00 pm and that was it for dinner. Also a great place to people watch!

icecream is ok, but not special. wondering why so many people ask for this and recommend it so. u can even see in the shop that big quantities are produced. so not so exceptional. the price is ok and get a lot of ice cream for one portion, nevertheless I prefer other ice cream shops in town

You have to try the ice cream... The most amazing ice cream ever... And the selection is.... Uhh hard to choose.... I took hemp ice cream that was good and an amazing muffin taste.... After i returned for another soy chocolate and wild strawberries... I cant wait to come back again.... Till then i will dream about it...

This place has two awesome qualities - great desserts, and also a great spot for people watching when sitting outside! Try the peanut butter hot chocolate - it was so thick and delicious. Definitely not something to have if you need to cut down on cholesterol! Ice creams were also amazing.

Coffee and ice cream after dinner one night. Very busy, but service good. Clearly a popular place for tourists. Extensive ice cream menu. Quite expensive compared to others.

Good ice-cream in Ljubljana, nice location, they offer also vegan and low sugar options. Pro-organika ice cream is my favourite

I ordered the dark chocolate and raspberry flavour, as well as the amarena (yoghurt & cherry) and it was honestly the best ice cream I have ever tasted. Would go there every day if it was possible.

I went there during the easter week-end. The ice cream is delicious and cheap. Besides, If the weather is fine and you are lucky enough to find a table available outside, you can enjoy the view on the river.
