Wonderfully quirky decor and beautifully presented cakes and desserts in this coffee shop. Can recommend the pistachio and piedmont tortes. Really lovely staff team, who put up with my small but noisy baby three days running. Good free wifi.

Yes, cakes are special, but chandeliers make fancy place/atmosphere. You can sit outside by the Ljubljanica river bank.

Nestled amongst the many pubs and restaurants that line the canal in central Ljubljana is this darling of a cafe. Tired of shopping or walking - step in and have a hot beverage with a tasty dessert. Not a showplace operation, but very satisfying.

I agree with CiriB. There are other great places to eat lunch and then come to Lolita for the desserts. :)

Lolita seduces and satisfies all your senses ... If you will enter into Lolita˝s environment, you will succumb to its charms. You will be seated in a warm sofa, staring you through the large windows and follow the movie that city center will play for you.. It will smell of almonds, chocolate, fresh biscuits, vanilla, tea and coffee. You will not want to go, until you try this precious cakes that you will be offered. You can stay even longer, and plunge into the novel by Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita. However, you can compose your story, perhaps on the basis of past times, which took place in this old building, which they say Filipov's house and it was caused by a severe earthquake in Ljubljana in 1895. How interesting that there was previously a café, Mayrjeva cafe, which was located in the lower rooms of the manor. It was then the center of socializing and Lolita will resurrect these times ... Lolita is neither just a patisserie nor a cafe, but it is easy to Lolita.
