Nice place to eat ice cream by the river Ljubljanica. Crowdy but lovely place to drink coffee or to sweeten your day :)

Coffee is (and everything else) overpriced and the interior really doesn't make you wish to stick around. On the upper floor, there is no air when overcrowded. If anything, try the "ice cream cake".

We popped into this cafe on advice from our local tour guide that the icecream here had won awards. And of course we sampled the product after much deliberation. The icecream ingredients were different and that's exactly what we wanted to try. At 11am though...More

Wow what wonderful ice creams they have here. The best ever! We stayed for a weekend and came here twice. The mascake was the favourite. Great ice cream cocktails too! Would definitely recommend a visit here especially if you're an ice cream lover.

Cacao is perfect for breakfast when you want to treat yourself . My girlfriend and I came back several times when visititing Ljubljana. Try the ham and cheese brioche!

Called in for dessert on way back to our hotel. Huge range to choose from and everything looks delicious. Had the apple strudel which was excellent. Very good value too. One can sit outside by the river, but we sat inside as it was chilly.

Focus on desserts and good ice cream. Centrally located so often crowded (especially outside when the weather is nice). Good cohioce for a coffe and sweets in the pedestrian center.
