Atmosphere of the café was lovely, very relaxing. Staff were very helpful and patient. Disappointed in the food, however the hot drinks were lovely in the cold night. Prices are very high.

You should try their ice creams! That's all! Also cakes are more than great. Ambient near the river Ljubljanica gives additional great feeling.

Location-location-location,...it is an old statemen- but for me, as a former local, it is not so important - for me it is all about the tastes. There is alot of sweet shops in Ljubljana and alot of different tastes -... More

We came here for dessert after dinner in a different establishment and had the chocolate mousse cake not sweet which is how we like it. Coffee was good. Service was great and staff was nice and friendly (you can have a bit of a banter with).

Great ice cream and coffee right in the centre of the town. They also offer cakes and some snacks. Staff could smile a bit more, but hey ho.

CACAO has very good ice cream, and the rest of the offer. And that, that in the summertime is really difficult to get a free table, speaks for itself- So, that onlymeans, the visit is "must go".

We stopped for pudding after eating elsewhere. The cakes were good with good portion sizes. For me the hot chocolate was too thick and sickly (decadent?), close to requiring a spoon to eat it with. The standard coffees were good

Fantastic ice cream - probably over 20 flavours available; I had the ice cream cake special on two separate occasions (so good I went back again). One was with beetroot sorbet, and the other pistachio - both were absolutely delicious. They have lots of cakes and desserts on display too. Also tried the hazelnut cake - rich and chocolately.
