The cafe and the restaurant have great prices, delicious fresh food, amazing ice creams and cakes and to top it off, an amazing atmosphere and very friendly staff. The sunny terrace is absolutely beautiful and makes for a great lunch spot.

SWEET AND SAVOURY ADVENTURS IN THE HART OF LJUBLJANA Set smack in the middle of the city centre, with a peaceful terrace offering lovely views of the newly pedestrianised Slovenska Cesta, Plato boasts both a popular café on the ground floor and a stylish modern restaurant upstairs. At the former you can order from a huge selection of delectable homemade cakes and pastries, or grab an amazing sandwich with bread baked in-house each morning or have a nutritious breakfast. At the restaurant the menu is distinctly Mediterranean and features seasonal dishes with only the freshest ingredients. Calm, pleasant and modern ambience is also suitable for business meetings, for which we have createda very special culinary business lunches. Spacious ambience of the restaurant is also suitable for birthday parties, celebrate special events and meetings, and various business gatherings such as promotions, presentations and dinners. On warm summer evenings the terrace is a perfect place to relax with a drink and from June to September there’s a lively outdoor Salsa party on Thursdays, while every Friday year-round night guests are treated to Live music. WARMLY WELCOME TO PLATO!
