Now without further ado, here are the Top 7 places to get Ice Cream in Ljubljana, as voted by our local readers in our most recent Best of Summer in Ljubljana competition:
#1 CacaoBoasting an unbeatable location just steps from Ljubljana's famed Prešernov Trg, Cacao is the city's top destination for ice cream lovers - overwhelmingly voted as having the best ice cream in town in each and every In Your Pocket Best of Summertime competition to date. It's large tree-shaded terrace along the banks of the Ljubljanica also gets top marks for atmosphere, while the laid-back chocolate brown interior is a great place to chill out with a mouthwatering slice of gourmet cake or freshly prepared fruit smoothie. One of our, and seemingly everyone else's, favourites.
#2 VigòLjubljana has seen a raft of excellent ice creameries open up in recent years, and foremost among them is Vigò. Located between Mestni Trg and Tromostovje we salivate every time we walk past this elegant gelateria-cum-café with continuously flowing taps of dark and white chocolate tempting from the window. Apart from stunningly good gelato - we like it sandwiched in a brioche - Vigò also offers cakes and excellent coffee. Upstairs is a chic space to relax over coffee and your sweet treat of choice, or grab a table on the pavement and people watch with a cocktail.
#5 McDonald'sLjubljana’s contribution to arguably the most popular fast food chain in the world offers a reliable and strangely soothing menu for when you want a taste of home, wherever that may be. With plenty of locations around the city, all offering free WiFi, friendly service and smiles for the whole family, keep an eye out for their local specials and don’t forget that the ketchup has to be ordered as an extra and the code to open the toilet door’s printed on your receipt.
If your hunger for the frozen stuff is so severe that seven of the best options in town aren't enough to satiate it, then you can find a dozen or so more options in our section that includes all of Ljubljana's ice cream.
