Café Culture – Slovenia

Ljubljana the capital of Slovenia has a thriving café scene, one that could rival any major European city. With over 100 cafés there are two distinct types - the Kavarna which are traditional coffee houses that were introduced by the Turkish in 1554. And then there are Kava bars which are the new breed of trendy café’s along the lines of what you might find in Australia. And just like in Australia sitting in a café is just as much about status as it is about enjoying a good cup of coffee. It’s about being seen in the right place.

Le Petite Café

This is definitely one of the coolest cafes in Ljubljana right in the heart of the student quarter which is the hub of the city where everything happens. Order the kava smetana, thick Turkish style coffee with a load of whipped cream on top.

Café Minimal

When they say minimal here, they mean literally! The interior is completely white, including white vaulted ceilings, white-painted metal tables, and soft white lighting, even the coffee comes white. Photographer Igor Andjelic designed the interior and he often holds exhibitions in the space. You can also here live bands here in the evening.
