We loved this bar and came here on our first night in Ljubljana which is obviously very popular and can get very busy. There were lots of locals in this bar which was nice and it felt very authentic. We stopped in the next day for a drink after a day of sightseeing and sat outside next to the river... More

I did not enjoy my time at Kavarna Maček. Some of their patrons, or guests, or whoever, beat me up and stole my stuff right there on the terrace; the management did nothing to help me or the police to catch the perps, and the security cameras mysteriously weren’t rolling. Did I get as much as an apology? No. The... More

A visit to this caffee is a must in Ljubljana. Friendly waiters especially Špelca will always have some fun with you. Just seat with your friend or alone at the Ljubljanica river bank and enjoy watching people passing by. Recommended is good choice of local craft beers, coffee and lemonades.

This is one of the few cafes in the centre of Ljubljana, that is located right by the river Ljubljanica and doesn't have overpriced coffee or any other drinks. That's why you will see lots of students hanging out there. The place itself is nothing special, an average cafe, but the location is great. I don't know about the food,... More

We really loved this place! Great, bustling atmosphere with the locals by the riverside with a great choice of beers for a drink. Friendly staff, great prices and loved the interior. If we ever come back to Ljubljana this would be the first place we would visit!

Did not try the food but the outdoor heated space was awesome. Right by the water and thus the promenade so a great people watching spot. Enjoyed it..

I love this place. It's nothing really special when you enter. But I end up coming back time to time when I am in Ljubljana. Maybe because of the service. The girls here are always very kind. And the mugs. They have every year a different pattern, the last one with drawings made by the staff. I have now 5...... More
