Very nice coffee place from inside, service was kind and good for having a full restaurant, the cakes are insanely good. Sadly the chairs and tables outside are not as comfortable.

While it rained a bit we slipped into Lolita and had a nice slice of heaven. Very good Hazelnut cake although they have many other choices. It took us about 5 mins to finally come to a decision as the menu has lots of choices...More

Stopped by Lolita's for a quick pastry snack. We tried the traditional Slovenia treat, Prekmurska gibanica. It was sweet and delicious. Tried the same pastry in other shops and this was by far better. We came back the next day for coffee which was also...More

We went there because of the good reviews, but the experience was somehow below average.. The cakes were OK (but pretty hard to eat without spoon), and the smoothies were so bland it almost felt like water. The location is nice, and the service was...More

We stopped here for coffee and cakes and sat outside to watch the world go by. They didn't have one if the cakes we wanted by their recommendation was just as good. Coffee was also very good. We weren't rushed and sat here just relaxing...More

This was specially recommended as the best ice cream in Ljubljana. We checked it out on Sunday, 18th - a really hot day - to find out that they had NO ICE CREAM AT ALL. Their fridge was broken, or some such story! Avoid. Go...More

Nice atmosphere inside. In the summer next to the river, downtown. Ice cream does not taste so good.

I agree with CiriB. There are other great places to eat lunch and then come to Lolita for the desserts. :)

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.
