The cakes and ice cream are unforgettable - especially the pistachio and rafaello cakes. The vegan raw cakes were homemade and refined sugar free, and we were really impressed. Don't go anywhere else for a sweet treat, even until late. P.S. Iced coffee isn't what we are used to in the UK/US - it's an iced black Americano with a... More

If you are looking for creamy moreish ice cream, then look no further. My advice would be keep it simple and go for one of the classic flavours. My pistachio was amazing. My boyfriend's speciality chocolate brownie one was good but he had ice cream envy so I ended up sharing! Lovely setting by the river...watch out for different flavours... More

This yet again is on the river bank. You have to wait for a table but it's worth it .. Gelato at its finest. Be it a cone, fresh fruit or a sundae as big as your head it's a nice cream lovers paradise.

See and be seen. Or just stop in for a gelato. This place was the apparent epi-center of the active social scene. We enjoyed the din of chater and a great gelato.

My husband and I recently visited Cacao on a rainy day in Ljubljana. We had a piece of chocolate orange cake and coffee with ice cream. The ice cream/ coffee combo was delicious. The cake was pretty good. Our waiter was very curt, but there were others there that were friendly. If it is a nice day and you can... More

We stopped here for one of their wonderful ice-creams. We were not disappointed. We had a table overlooking the canel. There was a great atmosphere and plenty going on around the streets as well as the canel (Boats, people on paddle boards etc). The ice-creams were extremely nice if not the most healthy choice! This was followed by lovely coffee.... More

This café is very good for ice cream lovers; plenty of choices and they are all tasty. The location is superb, just near the river and next to the main square. It is very nice sitting outside and enjoying the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly. Highly recommended.

Really good flavours - cookie is the best. "Must visit" place for all ice cream lovers :) Cacao in Ljubljana and also in Portorož are the best.

This café is perfectly located right alongside the river and next to the main square. The staff are friendly and the coffee is great. Nice sitting under the trees by the river watching the world go by.

One of the best I have ever had, big scoops. I recommend not to wait a queue at the stand outside but go inside, there are I think even more kinds of ice-cream.
