Delicious icecreams and sorbets

It was the most amazing icecream we had there. Too many choice, too big porsions. It is not cheap but it is reasonable price. You can seat along the river or inside the cafe.

Beautiful place with a nice view. They have nice ambience and even a pleasant selection of wines. Because I’m not a fan of sweets, I wanted to eat something else. All I could eat there, except the desserts, were sandwiches and smoothies that cost a fortune there. Because I was really hungry I ordered one with ham and it was... More

I think you need to be a real chocolate addict to enjoy the hot chocolate here there are so many varieties from bitter to rich nutella, whilst not for myself I can see some people really enjoying the drinks. The cakes were gorgeous as are their icecreams in the summer.

It can be very crowded, since it has a very good location, good sweets and really good ice cream. On the other hand, it has very good location, good sweets and really good ice cream, so there's that! I think it's not too cosy.

High wooden platform and little clumsy chairs stand on the left bank of Ljubljanica, few steps from Tromostovje. It is place for coffee, hot chocolate and a variety of ice creams. You pay drinks and location. Staff is mainly helpful but they need to run during summer season from one side of the street to another, between strollers, cyclists dogs... More

We entered this place out of pure curiosity after seeing it full a few days in a row... an ice-cream place full when outside it's freezing cold or snowing... we had to solve the mistery and to taste it for ourselves. The scoops were big, the ice-cream was tasty, the variety was good, the location was excellent (river side, Castle... More
