The place has a very good atmosphere, with enjoyable seats next to the river. The ice coffee was huge, with delicious cream. Ice creams are awesome to. Recommended!

Absolutely loved the ice creams - generous portions and so inexpensive! Had a variety even for those watching sugar or allergic to dairy.

The ice-cream is the best thing this place has to offer. A lot to choose from, including non standard tastes. A big plus for gluten free / vegan etc indications. Also great location at the very heart of old town. Unfortunately the coffee was very,...More

I went here three times in one day, it was that good! Lots of gluten free and lactose free ice creams. Perfect spot by the river near the main square.

Family had icecream here. It was very nice. Only complaint was that is was too big. Doesnt sound so bad does it? Smallest child in the family even got icecream for free. Now thats pretty rare. Would we go back? Yes!

For someone who doesn't even like ice cream... this place is transforming. Fantastic service. The staff has patience like I've never seen before and they allow people to have as many tastings as they'd like. Best gelato I've ever had. Try the peanut chocolate one....More

This cafe is always crowded and because of that the service tends to be poor. Pies and ice cream are lovely though!

Had an ice-cream here on every evening of our stay. It is divine, as is setting on the river bank. Cakes are good but very overpriced.

This was a "favorite" spot for our Slovene student host. We enjoyed coffee, visits, and gelatto. It was always busy with locals and tourists. Great for people watching. Service is excellent.
