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.

“Delicious cakes”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is a great place for a chat with a friend after Saturday morning trip to central food market that is only 200 m away or an early evening rest after strolling or shopping in the Ljubljana Old Town. Wide variety of excellent cakes and deserts - try almond cake or apricot cake with mascarpone. Friendly staff too.

“Lovely coffee, amazing cakes”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Found this place by accident as wanted a quick coffee before getting the bus. Coffee was excellent and when we went on to pay the most dazzling array of cakes was waiting for us. We got some to go :) Staff were really helpful and friendly as well. Lovely spot on the river on the other side of the triple bridge from a whole array of cafés, go to this place rather than wading into the crowds of people!

“Design pastry caffe with a great view!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

I like this place a lot! Best times to visit are during spring and summer, when days are sunny and evenings are worm. Inside of the shop is designed very nicely, so you can enjoy it during colder times. In terms of pastries, they host a wide variety of cakes, cookies and pralines. Portions are on the smaller side, but delicious!!

“Cakes, cookies, desserts”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Don't miss that riverside pastry shop & cafe, only a few steps away from 'Triple Bridge' and 'Central market' in Ljubljana old town. Pastry and desserts look like art work and taste like heaven. Top. For a local dessert try 'gibanica': puff pastry layers filled with poppy seeds, apples, cream cheese and walnuts.

“Adorable cafe, great treats!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Lolita was probably my favorite cafe/ sweet shop in Ljubljana. The interior is decorated perfectly and there are plenty of places to sit outside when the weather is nice. We ate dessert here twice in two days. The best thing we had was a chocolate mango cake. The service was also very good and friendly. I would definitely check out Lolita if you are in the mood for something sweet!
