I would say I had one of the most delicious cakes I have ever eaten here (it was the Raffaello Torte if you go - highly recommended!). But to be honest, there was so much that looked delicious on offer, the hardest part was choosing! I would definitely recommend stopping here whilst waking around Ljubljana.

Having tasted ice cream around the world, even making it myself at home from scratch, I can truly admit that Cacao has the real deal- with very, very, very tasty and natural Ice cream made from the best ingredients! Outdoor and indoor seating, lots of choices of ice cream scoops and cakes. We had whiskey and Ice cream!

The icecream is great! Not the best of the world, but is really good stuff. You have good choices, all recommended. The staff is polite and helpfull. There are tables outside and inside, or you can grab your gellato and have a nice walk through the old city centre.

I recommend to all who visit to Ljubljana and wish to eat ice cream, you must visit Cacao. Location along the Ljubljanica river gives a special flair and ambience

We stopped by to enjoy coffee and cakes here, and would definitely return and can highly recommend. Might look crowded and busy at the first look, but the service is super efficient, the cakes are mouth-watering and the coffee is very good, too. Very nice location, and all the cakes and ice creams look and taste very good!

We ended up here twice; once to warm up with some hot chocolate, which was amazing and we paired with their ciabatta sandwiches for luncb. We noticed their ice cream while we were there so came back a second time and had an ice cream overlooking the river which was gorgeous. We had more friendly service elsewhere, but it wasn't...

During our stay in Ljublijana, we came back here about four times. For ice cream / coffee & ice tea / cake! The ice teas are so good, tiramissu was huge, and the ice cream... well.... yum. yum. I'd recommend the hazlenut or the kinda maxi flavours . Really lovely outdoor seating by the river, especially on a glorious sunny... More

My father and I recently visited here due to the excellent reviews. I ordered a hot chocolate and my father had an americano. The hot chocolate was very thick, too thick to drink although it was delicious in flavour. The americano had mo flavour at all and when we asked for a stronger coffee we were told "you ordered an...
