“ice cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

One of the only places to get good gelato in the city, and really nice (nicer than Zveda for touristas). Do not get the terrible looking ice cream on Preseren square when this is 15 feet away!

“Massive portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We were starting to feel a little peckish after breakfast (at 4pm!) so we stopped at this lovely riverside cafe for a coffee and cake. We decided to have a sandwich too... Oops! The amount of food which came out was incredible, and the quality we found to be excellent. Try the pistachio cake!

“Pretty spot, ok fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012 via mobile

Pretty riverside spot, but food was so-so. At lunchtime they only had enough ciabatta for one sandwich, so we split one. I ordered a citrus flavored iced tea, but what they serve was more of a fruity spritzer than an iced tea. So, room for improvement.

“Great Food and beautiful seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012 via mobile

The food at cacao (especially the sandwiches) is exceptional! Come here for a healthly, light lunch which will fill your stomach and tingle your taste buds. Cacao is well known for it's fabulous ice cream (which we didn't try -it was 4degrees outside), but we found it a lovely place to get our vitamins in fruit juice form (which comes freshly squeezed and mixed).

Also we really liked the ambiance of the lounge area by the river where the sun shone directly at us and we could sit and eat outside even though it was only early march. The staff was very helpful in explaining the menu and granted good advise, and the sandwiches were amongst the best I've had. Mostly due to the lovely fresh baked bread. Yumm!
