We visited the place during our short stay and gave it a try because of its top rating. The location is great but the coffee is mediocre to my taste thus four stars. We don't also eat sweets so our experience was probably spoiled. The staff speak good English and the sweets look delicious so people who actually like such... More

You can get some excellent ice cream and pastries here, in a funky and hip atmosphere. Thery also offer healthy breakfast fare such as yogurt and muesli with fresh fruits. The coffee is also great.

Ice cream here is really delicious, I like milk rice with red fruits and dark chocolate with raspberries. Drinks are also very good, we had warm lemonade with ginger and ice teas. But Breakfast isn't so good, we alI ate Vege vital and we didn't like it. Very nice location on the riverside.

Here I ate the best icecream ever and my wife tried a chocolate cake which was also excellent. It is very relaxing to have a seat on the river banks and enjoy in shadow.

It is located by the river running through the city. We stopped here because our tour guide said they had the best gelato in all Ljubljana. We were not disappointed. It was very good; smooth, creamy and quite rich. Was it the best in Ljubljana? Perhaps. Should we return to this very delightful city, we will try some other options... More

This is a lovely spot by the river on Ljubljana - with great cake! Me and my boyfriend shared a piece, as the cake comes in huge slices, and it was really good. Coffee was also delicious, and given the size and quality of the cake it was reasonably priced.

If you want to tase variety of ice creams, good ice creams you have to go to cacao. They are situated in the very center in Ljubljana on the riverside and view of the castle and Jozef Plecnik's market on the other side of Ljubljanica.

Who does not love chocolate? :-) If you want some chocolate experience, go to Cacao. You will find your calorie "bomb", but who cares :-) The staff is nice, if the weather is good you can sit outside, just to the river and have nice view :-)
