One word: indulgent! The desserts are everything but modest, so don't eat too much before coming to Cacao! Very sweet and rich, beautifully made. Coffees are very tasty too. A must "naughty" desserts place to visit when in Ljubljana - enjoy!

While walking around in the city of Ljubliana, we passed by this place and we can't stop smelling the great smells even when we are away. On our way back, we couldn't just cross and leave, we stepped in and tasted the greatest Tiramissu Ever! I also tried one of the sandwiches, I forget the name, but it was also... More

My local friend took us there, telling us they had the best ice cream in Ljubljana. They indeed do! Fresh, old school ice cream, that comes in so many yummy flavours. Their outdoor space is also very pretty, right by the river. And the staff was very nice, too.

Grabbed a coffee as a pick me up before meeting a scientific colleague at the local University. Great location on the river bank under the trees. Friendly staff.

Just eat the ice cream, just do it, it is so good and cheap! I'd recommend taking the scoops instead of the portions because that way you can taste different flavors and even save some money because the scoops are really large.

All of the desserts and drinks that I've tried so far were really good. During summer they serve a wide range of many different flavours of ice cream. Although the ice cream is a bit pricey I think it pays off because it's really good. The cakes are also yummy and the smoothies are delicious.

An old town hot spot for decade now. One of first good gelato places, that still draw local people to seat at their garden and enjoy cakes and ice cream. A must for breakfast in warm summer days, get crowded around 10am.
