Finding a good coffee place in our capital, Ljubljana isn’t hard. I have some standard places I go to on a weekly basis, Zvezda definitely being one of them. I was more than happy when they opened a new café in the National Gallery of Slovenia.
One of the selling points of Zvezda in National Gallery is definitely its view. While sipping a tasty cup of coffee (or any beverage of your choice), you get the most amazing view at one of the most important Baroque monuments in Slovenia, the Foundation of the Three Rivers by Francesco Robba. Zvezda is a great place to stop for a cup of excellent coffee and dessert after seeing an exhibition, since the atmosphere is pleasant and calming, while the ambiance is a nice mix of modern and traditional.
Speaking of delicious coffee, I would highly suggest you add some of Zvezda’s gourmet sweet treats to your menu. A cake dedicated to Luiza Peskajova, a Slovenia poet, is definitely one of my favourites. Luiza cake is a true masterpiece, that will satisfy anyone’s gourmet sweet-tooth.
