Zvezda offers the best sweets in city of Ljubljana. We choose to try ice-cream and fruit cup, and it was delicious! Fresh, creamy, all you want from good ice-cream. I also tried some cakes, they were good, but not always fresh.

I was very surprised how nice the worker by the ice cream was. She gave us a try of some ice cream before so we can decide easier. Very welcoming. The ice cream portion is really big and the taste of it is just awesome. Go grab some if you are near by!

We went on the recommendation of our local tour guide. It had really nice cakes. We shared the Torta Panama and Gibanica. Both tasted really good. The Torta Panama is a flourless chocolate sponge cake with crushed walnuts and walnut cream. Smooth and tasty, not too sweet. Gibanica is a local katered cake. A heavy cake, lays claim to be...

During our stay in Ljubljana we went two times to this Kavarna, once for a sweet treat and a coffee and before we left for some drinks. The place is at the entry of a hotel in the pedestrian zone, it has many comfortable chairs and a wide selection of drinks, cakes and sandwiches. We tried a layered cake and... More

Trendy cafe offering creative desserts, ice cream, a wide range of coffees and teas and snacks. Their vegan pie was outstanding. Very crowded and somewhat noisy, but drinks and food items are available for take out. Popular with locals and well worth a visit.

After quite some time I returned to Ljubljana and was happy to bring my family and friends in Zvezda (the Star in Sloveninan language) which I remembered as top quality patisserie and cafe. To my disappointment they are not as good as they used to be. The interior is a bit ragged, particularly the toilets. The coffee called Zvezda was... More

The best cakes I have ever eat. The ones with the fresh fruit on the top are my favourite. There is nothing better than a time with friends and a cake.

Bought from the deli side next to the cafe a large shrimp salad. The three shrimps and the other garnish you see on top, that's it. Underneath is just salad. Also the shrimps were chewy and tasteless. Way overpriced and felt ripped off. Dressing was lovely though. Ice cream is great.

This is a typical European pastry-cum-coffee establishment, popular with locals and tourists in the know. Its location in the heart of the city next to a major thoroughfare makes it ideal for people -watching. WiFi is excellent, the service fast and friendly. Cozy chairs, large windows. Worth a visit, for sure.
