If you want ice cream whilst in Slovenia this is the place to get it from. Fantastic and delicious choices for a good price. Lovely location overlooking the river. Friendly service too. Worth a trip.

Mmmh - what an ice cream. Creamy and full of taste. Try jogurt mango or wild strawberry - really innovative. Also the scoops are pretty huge compared to the price!

You absolutely must stop here on your walk about of the old city. The Gelato is amazing and they have a wide range of flavours. The main store has a great array of desserts and accompanying drinks. Don't miss it!!

The ice cream is wonderful. We live in Italy and we still thought so. I got white chocolate and pistachio. The waitstaff is all young and seem stressed out and overwhelmed, though. But very good gelato.

Went there for breakfast. The service was attentive and the food was fresh. Location, by the river, is quite nice.

Good location next to the Triple Bridge, friendly staff and lots of varieties in menu. Just wanted some refreshment and ordered local IPA General Meister. And it was a perfect match. Very balanced taste, not too much alcohol ensured that visit in this place was excellent.

This place is always busy! So I was curious why and ordered an icecream in Cacao. The icecream did not disappoint me. It felt so right and utterly guilty. Sorry hips and bingo wings!

I have been to cacao in each visit to Ljubljana, they are not specialized in coffee but have a very good spot in the center. Nice break to rest and plan the next thing to do.
