Very popular cafe. Was packed when we visited on a Sunday afternoon but service was still good and brisk. Great selection of coffee and cakes. The cherry strudel is one of the best I've ever had.

Instead of lunch in this beautiful city, I chose to have a cappuccino and dessert. Great choice. Our tour guide said this was the best place to have pastry. He knew what he was taking about. I chose the local specialty, Gibanica. Cheese curd, apple, poppy seed and walnuts are sandwiched between layers of filo. It is served warm and... More

Been here on several occasions, the coffee adn the desserts are good, but the staff just doesn't do it for me. I sat down around 12am and as I recall the place was half empty and there were around 3-4 waiters working their shift. But it still took them around 20 minutes to even acknowledge that I was sitting there... More

Nice coffee shop on the main square of Ljubljana - as always in town, cappuccino is excellent and small cookies served with coffee crispy and delicious.

I won't tell you to avoid it because there's nothing really bad if you go to this place. But really - do not expect anything beyond mediocrity. That's how coffee tastes, that's also how most of the cakes taste and the staff is also somewhere between ok and bad. If you're looking for good cakes and/or ice cream you better... More
