Nice atmosphere inside. In the summer next to the river, downtown. Ice cream does not taste so good.

We sat inside as it's so pretty and had a sachertorte in a dish and the traditional Slovenian cake Prekmurska gibanica. Both were delicious - the sachertorte was very chocolatey and rich and the gibanica was tasty and moist. We had a strong macchiato to...More

I went for coffee and cake one day to escape the rain. The service was a little slow, but there was only one guy who was alone. I ordered an americano coffee and a hazelnut chocolate cake. The coffee was ok- nothing amazing but cheap,...More

There is a wide selection of cakes including traditional Slovenian ones. The cakes we tried were tasty and nicely served. Highly recommend trying Slovenian cake Gibanica here. Cafe itself has interesting design and riverside seating places. Good service.

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

Description
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.
