Description: Lolita seduces and satisfies all your senses ... If you will enter into Lolita˝s environment, you will succumb to its charms. You will be seated in a warm sofa, staring you through the large windows and follow the movie that city center will play for you.. It will smell of almonds, chocolate, fresh biscuits, vanilla, tea and coffee. You will not want to go, until you try this precious cakes that you will be offered. You can stay even longer, and plunge into the novel by Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita. However, you can compose your story, perhaps on the basis of past times, which took place in this old building, which they say Filipov's house and it was caused by a severe earthquake in Ljubljana in 1895. How interesting that there was previously a café, Mayrjeva cafe, which was located in the lower rooms of the manor. It was then the center of socializing and Lolita will resurrect these times ... Lolita is neither just a patisserie nor a cafe, but it is easy to Lolita.

I came here after dinner for a late night dessert and hot drink. The interior is quite feminine but very pretty and charming and has a very Parisienne feel to it. There is a good selection of chocolates, macarons,cakes and other sweets as well as some things available to buy. I opted for a traditional Slovenian layered cake known as gibanica, which has walnuts, ricotta, apples, poppy seeds as well as a few other ingredients. The portion size was very big so 1 is probably enough to share but it was delicious. I had it with a cup of herbal tea though they had lots of nice coffees and drinks available. They closed around 11pm on the Saturday night I was there and but I think it would have been lovely to have gone mid afternoon and spent a couple of hours just relaxing there.

Looks like a design hotel cafe (with there were more like this), the interior is a must-see if you are visiting Ljubljana. Very nice coffee, very good prices and delicious ice creams.

Don't be misslead by many cafes serving cake and ice cream and head straight to Lolita. If you have a sweet tooth, than be prepared to spend some time here. Cakes and pralines are just the beginning of what you can get there ... there are creations and surprises to die for and your tongue will sing "Lolita" and want to come back the minute you leave the place.

Fantastic design and atmosphere. You have to visit just to take a look at their interior; I think it was shortlisted for an interior design award last year.
