Top brunch places in Ljubljana city centre

by Maša Butara

Brunch = a long, indulgent mid-day meal in the company of a brewed coffee, sparkling cocktail or freshly squeezed orange juice. The decision is yours; all I can do is offer you my selection of the best brunch places in Ljubljana. Lucky for you, Ljubljana has quite a lot to offer.

Bazilika – Café with the most delicious Instagram page

There are 4 Bazilikas in Ljubljana (3 Cafés and Bistro) and the Križanke one is also opened during the weekends. They offer a selection of sweet and savory pies, sandwiches and selected bistro dishes that are prepared daily. Vegetarians will be pleased with their offerings and those who also love eating with their eyes can drool over their Instagram photos.

Le Petit Café – French-style café with a delightful terrace

They are well aware of the saying that brunch is the most important meal of the weekend. Your go-to dish there would be Eggs Loraine (oven fried eggs with prosciutto and grated cheese), a classic English breakfast or perfectly made Croque Madame served with homemade fries. If you fancy a sweet brunch, Le Petit Café can offer you sweet granola, yogurt, cakes, and pies.

Ek bistro – Lovely atmosphere with mouthwatering food options

Bistro Ek is the freshest of them all and it is the one where you can enjoy breakfast/brunch menu until 2PM, from homemade brioches to classic Eggs Royale and perfectly prepared shakshuka. Bistro Ek is your partner in crime when you are in a rush to find a typical brunch with local (eco) ingredients and an adorable interior. Hint: Don't say no to mimosas and check their Instagram, too. ;)

Slovenska hiša (Slovenian house) – Your go-to when searching for a traditional Slovenian breakfast

Slovenska hiša is offering food and drinks exclusively of Slovenian origin. You can't get a green tea there, but they will serve you a proper breakfast with exclusive choices of cheese and meat platters or perfectly fried eggs with crackling.

Kavarna Rog – Everything you want and pancakes on top

Kavarna Rog is located on Petkovškovo Nabrežje and will serve you breakfasts and brunches until noon during the week and until 2 PM at weekends. For a sweet dose of milky coffee, order a Kavarna Rog Latte and enjoy various accompanying dishes, from toasts, sandwiches, and different eggs options to mouthwatering homemade desserts and sweet and fluffy American pancakes.
