The best ice cream in Ljubljana and probably one of the best in Slovenia. Plenty of choices and excellent quality, pleasant staff, excellent location.

Absolutely delicious. I had the white chocolate pistachio and it was wonderful. So very creamy. We didn't have a long wait but it would have been worth double the time.
