Used to be the best in town. Now it is 2nd ;) but still great! They serve cakes as well. After a good meal you need to come here for a desert 👍🤓

We were in Ljubljana for a long weekend and we literally had gelato from Cacao every day of our trip. It's incredibly well priced for such amazing flavours! We love this place and I'm sure, on our next visit we will be bringing friends with us! (No matter how cold the weather gets!) I would seriously recommend Cacao for anybody... More

Killer desserts, smooth coffee, and friendly English-speaking staff. And a great location. What's not to like?

This is a good place to chill and drink tasty coffee. Waiters are nice and they come in handy when you have to choose between all the fine desserts.

Nice ice cream but not the best in our opinion. We preferred Vigò, just over the bridge....a more interesting choice of flavours.

I visited this place a lot of time, mostly when it's cold, because Cacao has the best hot chocolate in Ljubljana. The products has a very good quality, the prices are a little bit too big, but you pay also for the location, this is normal today, everywhere.

The place is in the center of Ljubljana. I've took a pistacchio-cake and a coffe, my friend a sacher-cake and a thè. The place is comfortable and not so expensive, considering the quality and that it is near the main square of the center.

The ice cream was delicious, i got 2 scoops not knowing that they were gonna be so big! They also have a couple of dairy free options, so if you're a vegan and you want some delicious ice cream you should definitely drop by!
