Excellent coffee and ice cream in a delightful location by the river and with the cathedral backdrop. We were lucky to have great weather so it was busy and great for relaxed people watching in the sunshine! Service was also very prompt and friendly given how busy it was.

After dinner my husband, daughter and I walked here for a desert. Oh my! How delicious. We had ice cream in Rome and this was by far the best chocolate I have ever had! Not too sweet. My husband had a brownie and he agreed. Like eating chocolate air. I would highly recommend this place

Great cream, great ingredients, nice service. No option to fail choosing an ice-cream in Cacao. Recommended: chocolate with raspberries and fig. No other in Slovenia.

Lovely milky coffee and a croissant sandwich alongside the river. As with all of Ljubljana, very relaxed and friendly.

Really nice quality ice cream, and also a super good price - you get big scoops as well. I had three scoops which was way too much for me to eat, but it was so good:)

There is long que in this place. This is the most popular caffe in Ljubljana. There was late afternoon when I decided to taste an ice-cream. It was crowded, I decided to sit outside, not far from the river. The place is nice. I should have been waiting long. The waiter was not friendly, didn’t asked how big ice-cream I... More

We had a nice dessert here, a black chocolate ice cream with raspberries. It's flavour is really something else. It was crowded on the terrace, so we took a takeaway and sat by the river to eat it. A really nice experience and great taste.

Excellent dessert place in Ljubljana! Has very good variety of ice creams/gellatos and desserts as in cakes and pastries. They have an extensive variety in hot chocolate too. A must visit if you like desserts. The hazelnut cake is super.

Thank InsaneDevil
