It is nice in Winter, but great in Summer. You can sit outside at the Ljubljanica canal, enjoy the views and even more the sweets. It seems to be a favorite of the locals, but the waiters speak English throughout, so you will get your favorite piece of cake. Ice cream is high quality, I love it. Mostly the place... More

We were pleased with our desserts, but this place is pricey compared to most places in Ljubljana. Great location, right near the Three Bridges.

Stayed in the old city and started to look for somewhere to have breakfast. At first it looked as the Cacao only had a few tables but went inside and told that they had an upstairs. A beautiful lounge with lovely chairs to have a sumptuous breakfast. Their range of cakes, pastries and ice cream were to die for. Lots... More

The first pop up when thinking to myself: "I would like a really good cup of ice cream" - UNDOUBTEDLY, without competition :) same goes for a good cake ... it is a bit pricy, but not too bad. they also serve many many sorts of natural teas, which I love and cocktails in the summer, that's quite perfect for...

If you're looking for the best ice cream in Ljubljana, you should visit Cacao in the city centre. They also offer a variety of cakes, coffee and hot chocolate. You may have to wait for a while, because the place is always crowded, which is always a good sign.

Many times I have been there with my friends for a coffee, icecream, cake... and you can not miss with any chosen item. We usually take our seats in the upstairs section, where there is always plenty of room, and the seating area is very nice (some big chairs at the window, or the plain table and bench combination). Seating... More

Came here for ice creams despite the sub zero temperatures and we were not sorry. They had a great variety of interesting flavours to choose from - highly recommend the fig and walnut! Very creamy flavourful gelati, loved it even in the freezing winter weather - washed down with a nice hot mug of gluwein after of course!

Delightful cafe specialising in chocolate and ice creams. The hot chocolate is so thick that you can eat it with a spoon. Don't be put off by the lack of tables downstairs, there is more seating upstairs.

We made a stop at Cacao Cafe to relax in the afternoon and have a good dessert. The chocolate pie and the hot chocolate were absolutely fantastic. Service is a little bit chaotic because the movement of customers is intense; it might become a little bit bothersome in summer when they are at full capacity. Otherwise, good option for after...
