    TEXT:  Located in between two remarkable Ljubljana’s touristic points, Triple bridge and Šentjakobs bridge, there are bars, restaurants and patisseries stringed like pearls on a neckless, showing off with their sunny terraces inviting tons of locals and tourist to sit down and relax. New achievement located on so called Ljubljana’s beach, is café and patisserie belonging to Chocolate atelier Dobnik. From the former and iconic café Maček, all the existing floor and wall coverings were removed, including all partition walls, installations and lighting system. The only thing that remained is historical shell, giving to the design extremely exquisite impression, creating an elegant café with the accent on comfortable feelings. 

    The main floor covering is oak parquet, which continuously climbs up three main sides of the bar counter. Ceramic tiles with 3D effect are placed all around the outer walls, creating a continuous stroke throughout the space. Central space is defined by the bar counter, next to which you can find a showcase representing all varieties of patisserie. Delicious sweets are enlightened with pendant Plat box light by Marset, resembling to the handmade pralines made by chocolatiers in that specific atelier. In the left part of the café, a step higher than the rest of the space you can sip your delicious coffee while you are actually sitting in the boxed shaped room, inserted in the main room. This wooden box is from the inner side completely covered with colourful fabric, resembling to the oriental carpets. This specific textile conjure up a feeling of cosy living room and gives you a comfortable feeling.
